Elbow injuries.

Stem cell treatment for elbow injuries.

One of the injuries that are commonly difficult to restore immediately are those located in the elbow. Possibly due to an accident you have had an injury of this type and you have been feeling for some time that it is not getting better, that the discomfort continues. 

This area of the body is very sensitive and every movement reminds us that something is wrong. There are many treatments that alleviate these injuries but in Novaten we have great success with the alternative treatment of stem cells.

Possible causes of elbow pain

A common cause is tendonitis: inflammation or injury to the tendons that attach the muscle to the bone. Elbow tendonitis is a sports injury often caused by playing tennis or golf or can occur from overuse of the elbow. 

Other causes of elbow pain include muscle strain, fractures, dislocations, bursitis, and arthritis. Treatment depends on the cause.

Other causes can be caused by routine activities in jobs such as: digital operators who spend long hours in the wrong position for line work, teachers or production line workers using the same position for hours at a time at one job.

The elbow is the joint that connects the upper arm to the forearm. The elbow joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Muscles and tendons help the elbow move around its joint. When any of these structures are injured or diseased, elbow problems occur.

Common Treatments for Elbow Pain

Treatment for elbow pain depends, like every disease, on the cause of the pain. Acute pain caused by improper loading usually goes away on its own. 

If tennis elbow or spondylitis is injured, a bandage may be needed to immobilize the joint. However, elbow pain is often treated with oral or topical medications. Your doctor may also inject corticosteroids or a local anesthetic to relieve pain. 

A proper rehabilitation plan is sometimes sufficient, but persistent triggers must be corrected, otherwise the pathology may return.

When conservative treatment is not effective, surgery may be necessary. Currently, most elbow diseases can be treated arthroscopically with less invasive methods. 

If the patient has osteoporosis, an osteotomy can be performed. If the injury is very severe or the joint is badly damaged, an elbow prosthesis can also be implanted.

Stem cells for treatment of elbow injuries. Benefits

Stem cells help regenerate tissues so that the body’s own resources can be used for improvement without the risk of immune rejection. Thus promoting better recovery by minimizing the risk of recurrence.

The use of stem cell treatment has the ability to recover patients from different types of injuries and reintegrate them back to normal life because:

It has been proven that the sooner you accompany your conventional medical treatment with a regenerative treatment, it shortens the time of reintegration to daily life and quantitatively reduces the chances of recurrence of discomfort from these injuries…..
