We are leaders in Illinois for safe and non-invasive regenerative medicine treatments that give you all-natural pain relief to your chronic elbow pain symptoms.
Non-Surgical Treatments for Elbow Pain Relief
Stem Cell Treatment
Regenerative medicine harnesses your body’s unique ability to self-heal to address the source of your elbow pain and associated inflammatory conditions. Stem cell treatments can reverse the progression of many degenerative diseases, leading to the symptomatic relief of your elbow pain and return to normal function.
Stem cell treatment involves injecting mesenchymal stem cells into your elbow joints to activate your body’s natural healing powers of tissue regenerative.
Mesenchymal stem cells are sourced from tissue banks, which get their samples from the donated amniotic fluid or umbilical cords of healthy mothers during surgical births. The mesenchymal stem cells are proven to be highly concentrated in these sources and therefore very successful in treatment.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
These injections contain platelet-rich plasma, obtained from a sample of your blood that has been processed to concentrate the platelets. When injected into your affected elbow, this serum containing a high concentration of growth factors prompts your body to unleash its natural healing and regenerative effects, resulting in pain relief and an improved range of motion.
Laser therapy is a minimally invasive procedure performed by our doctor that also yields good results for your sore elbow. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser uses a medical-grade laser to help heal inflamed and aggravated joints. Laser therapy enhances circulation and promotes tissue repair and restoration. Cold laser therapy works on its own or can be combined with other treatments to treat severe elbow pain.
Chiropractic care applies manual adjustments and manipulations in order to promote mobility, range of motion, and overall body function. It focuses on correcting the cause of the pain at the source rather than covering up the symptoms. This hands-on approach effectively brings healing to the root of your condition, alleviating your elbow pain and providing long term relief.
Physical Therapy uses customized exercises that allow for strengthening of the elbow joint. These exercises are demonstrated and observed by our trained Physical Therapist. These exercises not only help strengthen surrounding muscles and tendons of the elbow joint, they also can help break up scar tissue.
Accelerated Recovery Performance (ARP)
Accelerated Recovery Performance, or Arp, uses Direct Current (DC) to encourage blood flow to the elbow. The Direct Current reduce inflammation in the joint and helps the soft tissue heal quickly.
Acupuncture, performed by our Acupuncturist, uses small, thread like needles that are specially placed in areas surround the elbow in pain. Acupuncture encourages blood flow to the affected area. Blood flow helps in the healing of the soft tissues.
Tennis elbow is an inflammatory condition resulting in pain symptoms to the outside part of the elbow. Although common among tennis players, tennis elbow is a term used to describe injuries that occur from many motions, not just tennis or even sports. It affects both men and women and can occur at any age.
Activities with repetitive elbow movements can cause tennis elbow, such as:
Inner & Outer Elbow Pain
Elbow tendonitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the affected area or from an abrupt, more serious injury, such as a fall or an auto accident. The condition is described as an inflamed or irritated tendon, the thick cord that attaches bone to muscle.
Some elbow pain causes include :
- Cleaning a house
- Throwing and pitching
- And more
Because you frequently use your elbow and connecting arm bones during physical and everyday activities, there is always a possibility of injury. You could experience inner elbow pain, pain in the outer elbow, elbow pain when lifting, elbow pain when bending and straightening, or elbow tendon pain at any time in your life.
