Regenerative Medicine Treatments for Severe Elbow Pain
PRP therapy and human cellular tissue therapy are two non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments we use to help relieve elbow pain.
These treatments require little to no downtime, and they help your body’s own healing mechanism resolve the underlying cause of your sore elbows.
Conventional medicine often focuses on the symptom, but if you mask the pain with medication, any relief you get will only be temporary.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is made from a sample of your own blood. After the blood sample is drawn, we place it in a centrifuge to spin where the red blood cells and platelets are separated.
The resulting PRP is highly concentrated with healing properties that are injected into your damaged elbow tissue to help facilitate the healing process.
Human cellular tissue therapy also consists of injections into your elbow to help your body address the underlying cause of the pain.
These injections consist of highly powerful and potent healing compounds like:
- Growth factors
- Amino acids
- Hyaluronic acid
- And more
