Advanced Biologics Pain Management for Treatment of Arm/Elbow Pain

Natural Biologics for Treatment of Arm/Elbow Pain

Utilizing growth factors and other enzymes, the bodies cells can renew themselves through cell division and have the potential to develop into many different kinds of cell that the body needs.

Thus, when a therapeutic procedure called cell infusion applies them to a damaged area, they can promote healing through the growth of healthy new tissue and thus provide a Non-Surgical Alternative to Surgery.

At the Pain Relief Institute, we provide Biologics based treatments via Amnio-Derived joint injections and OrthoBiologics derived from the patients cells. 

Laser therapy is a therapeutic treatment that takes light photons and directs them into damaged tissue to improve healing in that area and to help with the reduction of pain, including arm and elbow pain. The light energy penetrates the deeper layers of tissue and stimulates cellular activity and the growth of healthy new cells. It helps new cells generate to repair damage in muscles, soft tissues, tendons, and even bone. This rejuvenation and healing are what help reduces pain in the area and enhances healing.

Conditions

Conditions that Produce Arm and Elbow Pain

Tennis Elbow, or lateral epicondylitis: Affecting the elbow and lower arm, this is a condition commonly seen in tennis players, but it s also common in people who do a lot of repetitive movements day in and day out. The most common symptoms include pain and weakness when shaking hands, turning a doorknob, or holding a cup. It is much like carpel tunnel, but is in the arm, not the wrist area.

Elbow Pain from Elbow Fracture, Tears and Sprains: Any situation that involves broken bones, torn muscles, or damaged tendons in the elbow area will result in some degree of pain, and it’s possible pain, weakness, stillness, or immobility will persist over time.

Bursitis Elbow Pain: Naturally occurring pockets of fluid known as olecranon bursae occur in the major joints of the body and work like airbags or cushions. In the elbow joint, they help provide smooth movement of the joint, but when the elbow is inflamed, you can experience pain. Elbow bursitis, or olecranon bursitis, or Popeye elbow, causes swelling and inflammation in the joint.

Golfer’s Elbow, or medial epicondylitis: Again affecting the elbow and lower arm, this condition also involves the muscle and tendons of the arm. Pain from Golfer’s Elbow comes from repetitive wrist or finger clenching and twisting like what is used in gold swings. Numbness, weakness, arm and elbow pain, and shaking are common signs of this condition and can radiate into the hand in some cases.

Arthritis and Elbow Pain: Arthritis is one of the most common causes of joint pain, especially in the large joints and the ones used day in and day out. Compared with other forms of arthritis, elbow arthritis is rare, but it is still one of the leading causes of chronic elbow pain. Rheumatoid arthritis is much more common in elbow pain cases than typical osteoarthritis.

Funny Bone Pain and Cubital Tunnel Pain: Pretty much everyone knows the pain associated with hitting the funny bone as is shoots down your forearm and into hand. This pain occurs because the ulnar nerve that runs along the outside of your elbow has been hit. The ulnar nerve may be pinched or irritated from repetitive motion. This condition is called Cubital Tunnel and is like chronic funny bone pain.

Diagnosing the cause of your pain

Children are at risk for arm injuries and consequent arm and elbow pain due to their running, climbing, and playing. Young children are also prone to falls due to poor body control. Broken bones are the most serious injury for a child because if the growth plate area of the bone is affected, it can impact future growth of the bone and result in stunted or unnatural growth of the bone.

On the opposite side of the age spectrum, senior adults are also prone to arm injuries and the resulting arm and elbow pain, again due to their risk of falling. Because of vision problems, mental decline, and mobility troubles, falls are very common and can also be very devastating as conditions like osteoporosis make bone more susceptible to breaking.

Most minor injuries mend on their own, and home treatment is usually all that is needed to relieve symptoms like arm and elbow pain and promote healing, but if serious injury has occurred, it is imperative for anyone to seek immediate medical care and attention. One innovative new therapy for arm and elbow pain is the utilization of OrthoBiologics (healing cells derived from the patient) and Biologics (healing cells derived from living cells).
