What is Tennis Elbow?
Specifically, tennis elbow is a stress injury that’s the result of repetitive motions made by the ligaments and joints.
Over time, with these repetitive motions, the strain to the muscles around the elbow will cause overuse and general irritation of the tissue that connects your muscles to your elbow joints.
The levels of pain our patients experience with tennis elbow vary based on severity and overall pain tolerance.
Generally, though, many people are excited for the chance to learn how they can relieve their tennis elbow pain.
Alternative Treatments for Tennis Elbow
Many of the patients we treat for tennis elbow will have already tried physical therapy, bracing, steroid injections, and/or pain relievers but have found that their overall condition has not improved.
Surgery is one way to provide a more permanent relief of tennis elbow pain. The most common surgical option used to treat tennis elbow is called arthroscopic surgery.
And while surgery may a more permanent solution, many of our patients find that it can also be time consuming and expensive.
Another option for treating tennis elbow is through PRP and stem cell therapy.
Stem cells are a more natural option than traditional orthopedic surgery and may help you manage the pain for a longer period of time than taking pain killers.
Stem cell therapy helps facilitate the healing of injuries to the bone, cartilage, muscle, tendon and ligaments. This is especially true for patients with tennis elbow.
However, it is important to understand that stem cell treatment is not a permanent solution.
At Motus Biologics, we hope to provide our patients with anywhere from 4-6 years of improvement of tennis elbow pain.
Often times, stem cell treatments can prolong or even eliminate the need for orthopedic surgery altogether.
