Are steroid injections or elbow surgery really the only options for Elbow Pain?
Medica Pain Management offer minimally invasive, non-surgical, safe alternatives for Elbow pain treatment to get your life back on track without surgery or steroid injections!
Elbow pain is common and primarily affects sports enthusiasts, hobbyists and people, whose jobs involve the repetitive hand, wrist and arm movements. Elbows can wear down over time beyond our body’s natural ability to repair the damage. Medica Pain Management procedures are likely to be an excellent treatment option for elbow bursitis, arthritis and overuse conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. we also offer elbow tendonitis treatment and treatment for other conditions that cause elbow pain.
In recent years, several studies have shown the effectiveness of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in treating elbow tendon and ligament issues. There are very few cases where surgery would be recommended for anything but the most severe elbow injuries. Conventionally, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and pain killers are administered for symptomatic treatment only, whereas, PRP promotes healing of the inflamed or injured tendon. Like, for tennis elbow treatment, pain medication and rest are indicated in initial stage conventionally. Medicines and pain help in managing the symptoms but not the cause, unlike Regenerative Treatment, where we treat the cause of pain to manage the symptoms.
While conventional treatment, like surgery, may improve the condition but a few patients, post-surgery, continue to experience symptoms such as numbness, tenderness, or reduced range of motion or function. Also, elbow surgeries typically involve a painful post-surgical recovery with several days in the hospital, followed by a lengthy rehab period to restore strength and mobility of the elbow. In contrast, non-surgical Regenerative Therapy procedures are minimally invasive same-day procedures with minimal pain involved and no lengthy rehabilitation. Patients typically experience little to no downtime from our elbow pain treatment procedures, like Stromal vascular fraction therapy or Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP therapy.
Regenerative therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are next-generation Regenerative medicines. They not just manage the symptoms but treat the cause of elbow pain. Regenerative Therapy is an alternative treatment option for elbow pain that continues to be proven successful, not only by scientist and researchers but also by doctors. Doctors utilise this treatment for tennis elbow pain and a variety of conditions, including arthritis, tendon, ligament and overuse injuries, like bursitis of the elbow and for golfer’s elbow treatment too.
It utilises biologic material harvested directly from the patient’s body to help heal disease and injury. The treatment has become a game-changer for accelerating healing, regenerating tissue and combatting pain. It has reduced the need for prescription medications and surgery, proving to be a helpful tool towards managing and potentially eliminating pain in the body. Regenerative Therapy has helped a lot of people to overcome their chronic pain, to restore their function and mobility, and to improve their quality of life. Regenerative Therapy utilises several protocols that ultimately help in initiating the self-healing cycle in the injured part of the body; the result then is pain relief.
