Many occupations, sports, and hobbies require repetitive movements of the arm, wrist, and hand, resulting in overuse of the elbow joint. In fact, the most common cause of elbow pain is overuse occurring gradually over time. For example, overhand throwing places extreme stress on the elbow joint. Repetitive overhand throwing by professional baseball pitchers makes them especially prone to elbow pain. Some of the conditions that result in a painful elbow are:
Rest is often recommended to give the elbow a chance to heal. Other traditional modalities for elbow pain include icing the elbow, supporting the joint with a strap or sling, taking NSAIDs (pain pills), and going to formal physical therapy or performing range of motion exercises at home. If these conservative measures fail to provide relief of elbow pain, steroids and/or painkillers may be injected into the joint to temporarily ease the pain and swelling. However, these injections do not help in the long-term, do not address the cause of the elbow pain, and do not prevent further damage from occurring.
Living Well Balanced Integrative Medical Centers brings you a groundbreaking new therapy that offers natural pain relief. Our regenerative medicine treatments consist of amniotic tissue allografts. These human cells and tissues (HCT/Ps) are obtained from donor mothers shortly following delivery and consist of placental and cord tissues. These tissues are packed with reparative substances that can boost the body’s inherent ability to heal. The growth factors and proteins contained in these tissues create the ideal environment in the injured elbow to speed up the recovery process, reduce pain and inflammation, and restore function and mobility, all without drugs or surgery.
If conservative treatment for elbow pain has failed to provide relief after 2-4 months, surgery may be the only option for conditions such as tennis elbow, during which a section of damaged tendon is removed or repaired. However, you don’t have to undergo an invasive surgical procedure to get relief from pain in the elbow. A regenerative injection of human cell and tissue products gives you the opportunity to heal and become pain-free without surgery or drugs. You should consider regenerative therapy for elbow pain if:
We source our regenerative solutions from Predictive Biotech, an industry leader in human cell and tissue products (HCT/Ps). Our products are derived from placental tissue and Wharton’s jelly, a protective gel-like substance that surrounds the blood vessels in the umbilical cord. These tissues are usually discarded after childbirth. Carefully screened, consenting mothers donate these tissues to allow us to harness their powerful abilities to protect, repair, and heal injured and damaged tissues. After they are processed in a state-of-the-art FDA-registered lab, these HCT/Ps are used to relieve pain in major joints such as the elbow. The products we use should not be confused with stem cells harvested from human embryos.
