Lipogems®, Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures (PRP) and stem cell treatments for Elbow Pain

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.

The treatment

Lipogems® Therapy

Stem cells are simply your own body cells that can renew themselves and turn into other cells (differentiate). They live inside all of us in various tissues; their job is to repair damage as it occurs. We all know when we have a cut or injury our body repairs itself. As we age or experience big injuries, we may not be able to recruit enough of these cells to the site to fully repair the area.
The Lipogems procedure helps overcome this problem by extracting your own cells from an area of high volume, then concentrating the cells and re-injecting them into the damaged area to help the body heal naturally.
This procedure can be used for a wide range of conditions and are the tool of choice for injuries, arthritis and other conditions that may be more significant than what may be treated with our Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet Lysate Procedures.

Blood Platelet treatments (PRP)

PRP injection Treatments contain healing growth components from your own blood that increase your body’s natural ability to repair itself.
The use of PRP to repair joint, tendon, ligament, and muscle injuries is becoming well known, thanks to exposure from professional athletes.
Platelet injection treatments are effective because they have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area, making those stem cells work harder to heal damaged tissues.
Our Advanced Platelet Procedures are more pure and concentrated than those created by the automated machines used at most regenerative medicine clinics. Platelet procedures are commonly used for soft tissue injuries, mild arthritis and spine conditions.
