What Is Tennis Elbow
And Why Treat It?
Have you been experiencing severe pain in your elbows these past few weeks? Have prescription drugs, physical therapy, and other treatments not helped reduce this pain?
If your answer is yes, it is possible you are suffering from a specific condition and need to look into a Las Vegas stem cell therapy for tennis elbow. Tennis elbow refers to a degenerative condition where the cartilages, tendons, and ligaments – in particular the extensor carpi radialis brevis – in your elbows get injured due to excessive repetitive motions. The condition occurs when the tissues in your elbow tear due to overuse and overstrain.
Contrary to misconception, tennis elbow doesn’t always occur as a result of playing tennis. Over 95% of the cases of tennis elbow occur due to day-to-day activities like writing/typing, cooking, plumbing, cutting firewood, carpentry, car repair, or any event where you will extensively and repeatedly bend and flex your elbow.
Treating Tennis Elbow With
Stem Cell Therapy
Tennis elbow can be treated using stem cells. In fact, it is one of the safest treatment procedures available today. Stem cells are one of the most versatile cells in the human body. They don’t have a definite shape, form, or function of their own. They take on the characteristics of the cells in the part of the body where they are injected.
When injected into the elbow, stem cells transform into elbow cells and become new and healthy tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. When this happens, the damaged and torn tissues in your elbow are naturally eliminated by the body, and the stem cells take their place. Stem cells stimulate the production of a protein called the TSG-6, which is an anti-inflammatory molecule. This protein will reduce the inflammation caused by the tennis elbow.
Our Las Vegas stem cell therapy for tennis elbow is an extremely natural and safe treatment. The stem cells used are embryonic cells that are harvested from newborns’ umbilical cords after their parents give consent. The cells are the cornerstones that make up the human body in a fetus and are able to proliferate, divide, and regenerate as new cells very quickly.
What Happens During The Treatment At
At CellSpark Regenerative Centers, our therapy has been designed under the stewardship of Dr. Alex Spinoso, MD – one of the most reputed stem cell doctors in Nevada. We start each treatment session with a full body check-up. This is to ensure that you are eligible to undergo the treatment.
Ideally, anyone with tennis elbow or arthritis-caused elbow pain can undergo stem cell therapy. If you’re pregnant or planning to start a family, it’s best to speak to our specialist before scheduling your treatment.
On the day of the therapy, you are given a local anesthetic to numb your arm. Then the stem cell injections are administered at different points on and around the elbow. Normally, a single therapy session is enough to treat tennis elbow. Our doctor will let you know if you are required to undergo another session.
What To Expect
After The Treatment
Tennis elbow is a highly debilitating physical condition. Not only does it cause excessive pain and inflammation in the elbows and the arms, but in severe cases, it can cause permanent damage to your arm. Immediate treatment is necessary to return your elbow to health.
The therapy doesn’t require that you check into our facility, and you can drive yourself home immediately after the treatment. However, it is recommended that you don’t use your elbow too much for a few days, to allow the therapy to work.
Usually, it takes around six weeks for the tennis elbow inflammation and pain to disappear. In a few months, you will notice how easy it is to use your elbow completely pain-free.
