Elbow Pain Stem Cell Therapy
Tennis or gold elbow is a term used to describe severe elbow tendonitis or inflammation caused by overuse of the tendon or a partial tear in the elbow’s connective tissue called tendon, which connects the muscles to the bone.

The human body has a natural supply of stem cells that can renew themselves and turn into other cells. They leap into action to help heal and repair damaged tissues as it injury or disease occurs. Our body’s supply of stem cells declines as we age, making it harder fully repair injured or damaged tissues. Stem Cell Therapy help enhance potency of our stem cells by aspirating or extracting stem cells from specific area with high volume of stem cells, then concentrating and purifying the cells and re-injecting them into the elbow to trigger the body’s natural healing and regenerative mechanism.
Patients have the option to undergo traditional treatment of rest and taking medicines for temporary pain relief. The alternative option is to have Stem Cell Therapy that will address the cause of elbow pain by initiating the body’s healing process.
