We offer safe and effective non-surgical treatments for elbow and wrist pain that can help reduce your pain and get you back to your normal routine.
Non-Surgical Treatment for Severe, Chronic Elbow Pain
The key to these treatments is that they target the underlying cause of the pain and not just the pain itself. When you use pain medication, you are targeting the symptom rather than the cause.
And while you may experience temporary relief when using pain medication, it is only temporary, and the pain will always return. These regenerative treatments are also minimally invasive, with little to no downtime, so they’re good alternatives to surgery which often requires long recovery and rehabilitation times.
PRP therapy consists of injections into your damaged or degraded elbow tissue that contains healing properties. PRP or platelet-rich plasma is created when we draw a sample of your blood and place it in a centrifuge to spin. As it spins, the red blood cells and blood platelets separate, leaving behind concentrated PRP.
Human cellular tissue therapy also consists of injections, but these are derived from tissue that we source from accredited tissue banks.
The injections contain powerful healing compounds such as:
- Growth factors
- Hyaluronic acid
- Amino acids
These treatments are effective for a wide range of elbow issues, including golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow. These are both common conditions that occur on excess stress is placed either on the inside of the elbow for tennis elbow and the outside of the elbow for golfer’s elbow.
You don’t have to be a golfer or a tennis player to suffer from these conditions, but they do result in pain and can disrupt your daily life until you find a solution.
