Elbow Pain Regenerative Treatment

Are steroid injections or elbow surgery really the only options for Elbow Pain?

Medica Stem Cells offer minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe alternatives for Elbow pain treatment to get your life back on track without surgery or steroid injections!

elbow pain, Elbow TreatmentsElbow pain is common and primarily affects sports enthusiasts, hobbyists and people, whose jobs involve the repetitive hand, wrist and arm movements. Elbows can wear down over time beyond our body’s natural ability to repair the damage. Medica Pain Management procedures are likely to be an excellent treatment option for elbow bursitis, arthritis and overuse conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. we also offer elbow tendonitis treatment and treatment for other conditions that cause elbow pain.

In recent years, several studies have shown the effectiveness of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in treating elbow tendon and ligament issues. There are very few cases where surgery would be recommended for anything but the most severe elbow injuries. Conventionally, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and pain killers are administered for symptomatic treatment only, whereas, PRP promotes healing of the inflamed or injured tendon. Like, for tennis elbow treatment, pain medication and rest are indicated in initial stage conventionally. Medicines and pain help in managing the symptoms but not the cause, unlike Regenerative Treatment, where we treat the cause of pain to manage the symptoms.

While conventional treatment, like surgery, may improve the condition but a few patients, post-surgery, continue to experience symptoms such as numbness, tenderness, or reduced range of motion or function. Also, elbow surgeries typically involve a painful post-surgical recovery with several days in the hospital, followed by a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility of the elbow. In contrast, non-surgical Regenerative Therapy procedures are minimally invasive same-day procedures with minimal pain involved and no lengthy rehabilitation. Patients typically experience little to no downtime from our elbow pain treatment procedures, like Stromal vascular fraction therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP therapy.

 

Regenerative therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are next-generation Regenerative medicines. They not just manage the symptoms but treat the cause of elbow pain. Regenerative Therapy is an alternative treatment option for elbow pain that continues to be proven successful, not only by scientist and researchers but also by doctors. Doctors utilise this treatment for tennis elbow pain and a variety of conditions, including arthritis, tendon, ligament and overuse injuries, like bursitis of the elbow and for golfer’s elbow treatment too.

It utilises biologic material harvested directly from the patient’s body to help heal disease and injury. The treatment has become a game-changer for accelerating healing, regenerating tissue and combatting pain. It has reduced the need for prescription medications and surgery, proving to be a helpful tool towards managing and potentially eliminating pain in the body. Regenerative Therapy has helped a lot of people to overcome their chronic pain, to restore their function and mobility, and to improve their quality of life. Regenerative Therapy utilises several protocols that ultimately help in initiating the self-healing cycle in the injured part of the body; the result then is pain relief.

In certain cases it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol. For some patients however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions. The choice of treatment is at the discretion of the Consultant and is based on your unique case.

This treatment may, however, not be suitable for all patients and the Consultant will review the case and discuss all treatment options specific to your case.

With so many options out there, you may be wondering what benefits choosing Non-surgical Regenerative Treatments provides. Overall Regenerative Treatments are minimally invasive, non-surgical same day procedures with no risk of rejection, minimal recovery time and minimal worry. You are fully awake and ready to go home within a few hours after injections in the affected area.

Following are the top benefits of Regenerative treatment for Elbow pain:

Avoid surgery and its risks and many complications

Regenerative Therapy is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, which gives patients an alternative to painful surgery and a lengthy recovery. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and only takes 1-2 hours. No general anaesthesia is required and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication. Also, patients typically return to work within a day or two and they resume physical activity much faster than after invasive surgery.

 

Minimal post-procedural recovery time

One of the most time consuming factors of any injury is not always the treatment itself, but actually the recovery time. With Regenerative therapies, there is far less risk involved than surgery and recovery time is much shorter compared to surgery.

No use of general anaesthesia

Do you not like the way general anaesthesia makes you feel? Do you feel anxious even with the thought of it? Regenerative Therapy may be just what you need as it does not require the use of general anaesthesia. It provides a safe, increasingly effective non-surgical alternative to treating medical conditions using the body’s own natural ability to repair itself without the use of medication.

Same day procedure

A comprehensive examination and review of your case, blood tests & radio-imaging scans help to establish a baseline for your pre-existing condition. Based the medical information available, the Consultant will decide which line of Regenerative Therapy is most suited to your case. In certain cases, it may be a combination of more than one treatment protocol. For some patients, however, the complete protocol is a series of injections in several treatment sessions.

Safe procedures with No risk of rejection and No communicable disease transmission

Regenerative Therapy uses autologous cells (from self) transplants. As a result, there is no chance of rejection from your body’s immune system and minimal risk of infection. Like with any injection there is a minute risk of infection at the sample collection and the injection site hence the procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions.

Like any procedure, there is a minute risk of infection at the sample collection and at the injection site. To minimize that risk the procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions.

Several studies published demonstrates the efficacy of Regenerative Treatments.

Regenerative therapies are now used in clinics to treat degenerated knees, hips, shoulders and other joints. For more than five years, we are demonstrating excellent results. Patients see a marked reduction in pain as well as improvement in cartilage quality. A variety of well-founded clinical trials conducted, on Regenerative therapy for management and treatment of chronic pain. The trials concerning Regenerative therapies are widely published online (ex. on PubMed) and readily available for all to access. The use of Regenerative Treatments is proving to be both a safe and effective means of treating many conditions. These treatments allow the body to heal and regenerate in ways that were impossible before. Regenerative technology provides a natural alternative to the use of medication and surgeries, which may be more harmful and invasive.

Regenerative Therapy procedures are soon becoming a first-line treatment for chronic pain and degenerating joint disease, like Arthritis or osteoarthritis and providing a minimally invasive option to avoid invasive surgical repair and other various conditions. There are many Medica Stem Cell patient testimonials on our website from patients who have experienced significant improvements in their health for you to view.

Regenerative Therapy only takes a 1-2  hours to complete. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting, no general anaesthesia is required, and most patients don’t need post-operative pain medication. Patients will be able to go home almost immediately after the injection. Since this Therapy is an orthobiological treatment that requires time for the cells to restore the damaged areas in the elbow, patients will not feel the effect of the injection immediately. On average, most patients will start to see signs of improvement in the form of reduced pain or increased function within a few weeks. This is mainly due to the strong anti-inflammatory effect and the growth factors associated with adult mesenchymal cells. This anti-inflammatory effect lasts from 2-3 months. From there, you can see continued gradual improvement as the cells help provide healing to the affected area.

After the treatment for the first few days, you might experience mild discomfort at the injection site. The pain is not restrictive but mild and may persist for up to a week. Rest and mild pain-killers if needed, help in managing the pain.

Elbow injuries or conditions may or may not require repeat treatment. Typically it is best to wait 3-6 months before considering it.

Reviews of your progress may extend up to 6 months following the procedure. Reviews can be conducted either in a clinic or for your ease by video/phone call.

You will be asked during the period of follow up to keep an accurate record of your progress to compare to your starting point.

The outcome of the treatment and extent of improvement varies from one patient to another. Mostly, depending on the type and severity of the condition, age, etc.

Regenerative Therapy for Elbow Pain may help patients who don’t respond to typical drug treatment, want to reduce their reliance on medication, or are looking for safe alternatives to surgery. Regenerative Treatments are not suitable for all conditions and all patients. The consultant will be able to advise if you are a suitable candidate.
