The elbow is a joint that is constructed of bone, cartilage, ligaments, and fluid, but it is the muscles and tendons that help the elbow joint move. Although elbow pain is common when the joint is overused, most problems occur when any of the structures are injured or diseased. The most common cause of elbow pain is tendonitis, which is inflammation of the tendon that attaches the muscle to the bone. Many golfers and tennis players develop elbow tendonitis after years of playing these sports. In fact, many professional athletes who have developed tendonitis in the elbow have received Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for their injuries, and they have returned to action with few signs that an injury ever happened. The purpose of concentrated platelets being injected into the affected area is to release an abundance of growth factors to promote natural healing.
Stem Cell Therapy for elbow pain has helped many patients recover from tennis and golfer’s elbow, osteoarthritis, and other degenerative diseases. Stem Cell Therapy is a nonsurgical procedure that allows the doctors at Bay Area Stem Cell Therapy to help increase your body’s natural ability to heal when injected with concentrated stem cells. When you are helped with Stem Cell Therapy, cells are able to differentiate into specialized cells to repair the affected muscles, tendons, cartilage, and bones. This therapy also helps promote increased blood flow and growth factors that help regenerate tissue in the body.
