Suffering from Elbow Injury? Here Is What Stem Cells Can Do For You…!

  May 4th 2016    Blog

It is common to experience minor elbow injuries by teenagers and sports players that often get healed by taking non-inflammatory medication, application of ice-packs at the injured area, and taking some rest and relaxation. However, it is important to see your doctor as soon as possible because any subtle damage in the elbow can cause a chronic medical condition and may require the victim to go for an elbow surgery treatment. Moreover, in case of any major elbow injury or condition for which traditional treatments fail to heal it and become unable to bring the patient to its normal day to day activities, surgery often becomes the ultimate treatment. But the latest innovation in medical industry has brought a natural and much effective alternative treatment to elbow surgery widely known as Stem Cell Therapy.


Stem Cell Therapy

The therapy utilizes the power of stem cells to repair the damaged body tissues and heal painful and severe injuries. In this medical procedure, the cells are extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow and combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) of the patient, and the achieved matter is injected into the injured area. Moreover, the procedure is also used after a surgery to fasten the healing process and quickly reduce the pain.

Stem Cells Are Being Used Increasingly For Elbow Treatment


Stem cell therapy is gaining massive popularity and being globally used as an effective alternative to an elbow surgery treatment because of the following 3 major reasons:


Natural: The entire procedure is natural because the injected stem cells combined with PRP is taken from patient’s own bone-marrow. And this way the cells naturally heal the injury.


Safe: Since the procedure is natural and non-invasive and doesn’t involve injection of external material, it is safe and exceptionally result-oriented. Moreover, the therapy is free from various risks of elbow surgery treatment that include blood clots, fractures, dislocations, prosthetic breakdown, and foreign prosthetic.


Cost Effective: Surgeries are often highly priced and costly. Therefore, many patients switch on this affordable and cost-effective procedure to meet their basic needs.
