Waving to a neighbor. Opening a door. Lifting a package. When you have elbow pain, everyday actions can be excruciating.
You may be taking medication to manage your pain, but the problem remains. The prospect of surgery can be daunting, and you may be concerned about the lengthy recovery period required after an operation.
Stem Cell Therapy is a viable, minimally-invasive alternative to elbow surgery. Using adult adipose stem cells that are able to differentiate into specialized cells, the procedure can help the body to repair itself naturally. In many cases, the treatment results in an almost immediate reduction in pain and an increase in the joint’s range of motion.
A Regenerative Remedy
During the treatment, a doctor specializing in Stem Cell Therapy will harvest adult adipose stem cells from fat or bone tissue. These cells are then isolated and undergo minimal manipulation, before being injected directly into the site of injury. The procedure is safe and comfortable, though some tenderness near the injection site is normal.
We perform Stem Cell Therapy under local anesthetic. The entire procedure is performed during a single session lasting less than two hours. Most patients are able to return to work the following day.
Adult adipose stem cells have been proven to produce new blood vessels at the site of injection. This stimulates circulation in the afflicted area, resulting in a decrease in painful inflammation. The introduction of stem cells at the site of injury promotes the healing of damaged tissue, and can even lead to the regeneration of joint tissue weakened by or lost to disease or trauma.
Few Risks, Many Benefits
Unlike surgery, Stem Cell Therapy comes with minimal risk of complications. Because the cells used are autologous (from the patient’s own body) it is extremely unlikely that a patient will react poorly to treatment.
After treatment, you can recover comfortably at home and resume normal activity. As you go about your daily life, the stem cells work to regenerate damaged or lost tissue and restore full range of motion. You may find that your pain subsides after just one session, though multiple injections are also an option.
Whether your elbow pain is the result of disease or injury, you may be a good candidate for Stem Cell Therapy. Contact us to find out more.
