What is Stem Cell Treatment for Elbow Pain?

Stem cell therapy is a natural treatment for elbow injuries and conditions that cause elbow pain. Here in our Charlotte and Lake Norman clinics, elbow pain treatment due to overuse is incredibly common. Many sports, hobbies and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist, or arm movements. Elbow pain may occasionally be due to arthritis, but in general, your elbow joint is much less prone to wear-and-tear damage than are many other joints. At NeoGenix, we typically recommend bone marrow stem cells for more severe and chronic cases of elbow tendonitis. 

Mild to moderate cases can be treated with just growth factors from PRP.

Stem cell therapy is a natural, non-surgical alternative treatment for elbow pain relief from arthritis and general instability & degeneration.

 Is Stem Cell Treatment for Elbow Pain Effective?

Many patients find relief from pain and stiffness caused by repetitive use elbow injuries with stem cell or PRP treatments. There have been many research studies demonstrating significant improvement in elbow pain following stem cell or PRP therapy and numerous ongoing studies continuing to evaluate the benefits.

Patients that have received Stem Cell Therapy at NeoGenix have reported:

  • Less pain from tennis elbow, pickle ball elbow, and golfer’s elbow
  • Reduced joint stiffness
  • Reduced dependency on pain medications
  • Improved mobility

NeoGenix is also founded by one of the most experienced elbow injury treatment doctors in Charlotte,NC, Dr. James Altizer, who has been performing stem cell therapy in North Carolina since January of 2016. Dr. Altizer received expert training from recognized leaders in the regenerative medicine field, including training on bone marrow aspiration with Duke University-affiliated physicians. He has performed thousands of stem cell and growth factor procedures, more than any other medical doctor in the Carolinas.

NeoGenix has a patient success rate of over 94%* with many results lasting for years.

An Alternative to Elbow Surgery

So over time with repetitive use, elbow tendonitis tends to worsen, sometimes slowly over years and sometimes very quickly over a few months. The only alternative to invasive surgery is stem cell therapy. Do not agree to surgery until you’ve got a second opinion to see whether or not stem cell therapy can help. The less invasive treatment is, the easier and more successful your recovery will be.

Many of the patients who have undergone stem cell and PRP treatments for elbow pain and tendonitis have found these minimally invasive procedures to be an excellent alternative to surgery.

Elbow Pain: What is It?

Elbow pain is a typical medical condition that is caused by an injury to the joint of your elbow. Various conditions, including tendinitis, osteoarthritis, strains, and many others, may also cause it. Suppose you’ve experienced discomfort in your elbow that is not resolved regardless of minimal exercise, physical therapy, or prescription medications. You may be the perfect prospect for advanced elbow pain treatment using regenerative medicine.

Elbow injuries: Tennis Elbow, Sprains, and Tendonitis

Elbow injuries are damage to the elbow joint’s muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The damage may come from sprains, tendinitis, and sports injuries like tennis elbow. Tennis elbow occurs from repetitive movement of the muscles around the forearm, causing pain around the outside of the elbow. Elbow sprains result from overloading the elbow during everyday movements. Tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendons of the elbow joint, resulting in stiffness, reduced range of motion, and pain in the outer part or side of the elbow.

Elbow Conditions

Lateral Epicondylitis

Often referred to as tennis elbow, lateral epicondylitis could be experienced by anyone, regardless of whether it’s an athletic person or not. The primary reason for lateral epicondylitis can be repetitive arm motions that can cause weakness, wear, and damage to the tendons that connect the muscles to the elbow joint.

The most common signs of tennis elbow include burning, pain, and discomfort on the outside edge. If the pain persists for several days, we recommend seeking medical treatment.

Medial Epicondylitis

Medial epicondylitis is commonly known as golfer’s elbow or baseball elbow, and it isn’t specific to athletes. The pain from golfer’s elbow radiates out from the elbow towards the wrist’s inner side of the elbow. The part inside the elbow that is most affected is known as “the medial” side. Golfer’s elbow can be caused by the repetitive motion when you constantly bend your wrists and arms. It also happens when you repeatedly grab or twist objects, which can irritate the tendons that extend toward your arm.

The condition can be characterized by pain in your arm and wrists, a significant decrease in your grip strength, tingling in your hands and wrists, and many more. Diagnosing this condition requires an exam of your arm, wrist, and elbow from a healthcare provider.

Olecranon Bursitis

The olecranon, or olecranon, is the pointed bone inside your elbow. This olecranon bursa is a fluid-filled sac that lies near the bony tip on the elbow. These sacs that are filled with fluid serve as cushions between bones and other soft tissues.

But, in extreme stress trauma, pressure, or other ailments, such as arthritis rheumatoid, they could become inflamed or infected from open wounds in the elbow. The result is redness, pain, swelling, and even warmth. It is essential to speak to an expert in pain management to identify your problem to ensure proper treatment and assessment in the event of these symptoms in your elbow.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that causes gradual wear and tear on the elbow joints. It is a cause of stiffness and joint pain that can get worse with the use of anti-inflammatory medicines. We address osteoarthritis in elbow pain using PRP and stem cell therapy. Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Altizer and our team today.

Triceps Tendonitis

Triceps tendonitis is an elbow problem resulting from the tendon’s inflammation, which connects the muscle at the side part of your arm to the bone on the elbow. Triceps tendonitis usually occurs through repetitive actions that strain the elbow. Physical activities like hammering, throwing an object like a baseball, and performing bench presses, are common causes of triceps tendonitis.

Elbow Strains and Sprains, Especially from Overuse

Frequently, strains and sprains are caused by repetitive motions that cause elbow injury. They result in injury, swelling, stiffness, and pain in the area of elbow joints. These conditions can be caused by work. The impact is not limited to the elbow – you may find related joints like the wrist, forearm, and hands are also impacted. Suppose you have elbow pain that persists for a long time or even after taking medication over the counter. In that case, you could be a suitable applicant for stem cell therapy.

If you are ready to explore regenerative medicine, schedule a consultation today.

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital tunnel syndrome is an elbow problem resulting from strain or overstretching of the ulnar nerve. This strain can cause numbness, inflammation, and irritation on the outside of your elbow. The signs typically show tingling, pain, and weakening of the ring and smaller fingers.

  • Stem Cell Therapy for Golfer’s Elbow

    Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis) is a condition that causes pain where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain might spread into your forearm and wrist. It’s not limited to golfers. Tennis players and others who repeatedly use their wrists or clench their fingers also can develop golfer’s elbow.

    The pain of golfer’s elbow doesn’t have to keep you off the course or away from your favorite activities. Rest and appropriate treatment can get you back into the swing of things. Stem cell or PRP therapy speeds up the healing and recovery process, allowing you to get back to your normal activities more quickly.

  • Stem Cell Therapy for Tennis Elbow or Pickle Ball Elbow

    Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overloaded, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.

    Despite its name, athletes aren’t the only people who develop tennis elbow. People whose jobs feature the types of motions that can lead to tennis elbow include plumbers, painters, carpenters, and butchers.

    The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist.

    The pain of tennis elbow doesn’t have to keep you from work or your favorite activities. Rest and appropriate treatment can get you back to doing normal everyday activities again.
