Although our elbows are structured to handle a certain amount of force and wear and tear, our modern lifestyles have us leaning and bearing more weight on them than ever before. There are also soft tissue injuries that are the result of repetitive motions and overuse. Last but not least, like all other joints in the body, the elbow is susceptible to forms of arthritis as we age as well.
This 2020 study conducted by the National Institute of Health outlines the prevalence of tennis elbow in the American population at around 1-3% on an annual basis. Despite the name, only 10% of patients with tennis elbow actually sustained the injury playing tennis. The other 90% occurred due to repetitive motions, moving heavy objects, and overuse. The specialists at Stem Cellutions have years of experience in diagnosing and administering regenerative therapy for elbow injuries.

The professionals at Stem Cellutions specialize in regenerative medicines such as stem cell therapy and PRP therapy. These methods are non-invasive, require little-to-no downtime, and utilize materials sourced from deposits in your own body. This helps to ensure that your body accepts the therapy and begins the regenerative process. Here at Stem Cellutions, we want to help our patients avoid invasive, costly, unnecessary surgery and help them get results that have lasting effects and help restore their quality of life.
Stem cells can be extracted from adipose (fat) or bone marrow and are packed with unprogrammed cells that, once introduced to an injury site, stimulate the process of cellular regeneration and can help repair joints and tissue.
PRP uses an extract from your blood that has been separated and condensed into a concentrated dose of plasma. Packed with the building blocks for cellular growth, it provides an injury site with everything it needs to replace damaged tissue.
