Elbow pain is often due to overuse as many sports, hobbies and jobs involve repetitive hand, wrist and arm movements. stem cell therapy, Lipogems® adipose tissue transfer and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy can be used to treat elbow pain.
Your elbow joint consists of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluids and is the joint where the three long bones of the arm meet. Tendons and muscles help the elbow joint to move.
A common cause of elbow pain is tendinitis (including tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow), which is an inflammation or an injury to the tendons which attach the muscle to the bone.
This condition causes pain and tenderness on the outside (tennis elbow) or inside of the elbow (golfer’s elbow). You may also experience pain in your forearm and in the back of your hand.
Elbow pain can also be caused by sprains, strains, dislocations, bursitis and arthritis. It is more unusual for your elbow joint to have arthritis as it is less prone to wear and tear damage than other joints.
Initial treatment for most elbow conditions may include anti-inflammatory medicines, physiotherapy and corticosteroid injections. Sometimes people may require surgery.
Stem cell therapy, Lipogems® adipose tissue transfer and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. and PRP therapy are effective in treating most elbow conditions and eliminating elbow pain. These treatments avoid the need for surgery and enable people to get back to normal activities sooner.
