Stem Cell Signaling Golfer’s Elbow Relief
Medial Epicondylitis which is commonly referred to as golfers elbow is an inflammatory condition that causes tendonitis on the medial elbow. This condition is actually the exact opposite of tennis elbow, where inflammation occurs on the lateral elbow joint. Golfers elbow is usually an overuse injury that generates pain and inflammation of the tendon of the elbow. This can occur during the backswing and downswing while playing golf. Golfers elbow extends beyond golf as well and can occur with any overuse of the wrist flexors such as manual labor or poor posture during computer work that generates stress and inflammation. If the condition is not address or treated initially, it can further progress and cause more pain and a longer recovery time.
Symptoms of Golfers Elbow
- Pain / Inflammation of the medial elbow
- Muscle weakness in the forearm, hands and wrist
- Joint Stiffness
- Shooting Pain
At our Gilbert, AZ clinic we have been treating golfers elbow for many years with great results using regenerative allografts with PRP. There are many treatment options when it comes to tendonitis, but I have found through my clinical experience that regenerative injections generally have the best results compared to conventional treatment options and other injection therapies. The main advantage to this therapy is that there is a quick recovery time for golfers elbow. My patients particularly like this, as most of them are retired and enjoy golfing with their friends on a weekly basis.
The stem cell signaling allograft with PRP treatment is fairly straightforward at our clinic. I draw blood, usually 60-120 ml, extract the growth factors out, and then mix this solution with a regenerative allograft. We treat the entire area of the ligament that is inflamed or in pain with only a few injections. The solution is rich in cells, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory factors that immediately aid in the tendons healing progression. Patients respond well and generally are able to resume golfing in 2-3 weeks after the treatment depending on the severity.
Benefits of Regenerative Injections
- Fast Pain Relief
- Repair of Connective Tissue
- Quick Recovery Time
- Non-Surgical / Non-Invasive
Stem Cell Signaling Golfer’s Elbow: A Case Study
Paul (fictional name), is a 67 year old male who came to Atlas Health Medical Group in Gilbert, AZ with medial elbow pain for 1 week duration. Paul had similar pain previously but it would go away with 600mg Ibuprofen. The pain initially started when he was playing golf with his friends and he gradually been getting worse and worse. Paul told me he has been training for his upcoming men’s league club championship and has been practicing daily over the past 2 weeks at his local golf club. I took Paul’s case history and completed a physical exam on his elbow.
My assessment was:
- Medial Epicondylitis
- Forearm and Hand muscle weakness
- Overuse Injury
Paul’s case was textbook medial epicondylitis aka golfers elbow. Unfortunately for Paul, he needed treatment and rest from golf to heal his tendon. Since the club championship was important to Paul, we began treatment after the tournament. I treated Paul with regenerative injections to his medial elbow tendon as well as the surrounding joint for additional strength. I also recommended Paul incorporate more anti-inflammatory foods into his diet such as salmon, sardines, olive oil, coconut oil and avocados. I checked up on Paul 6 weeks after his treatment. At this time he reported that his elbow was 100% pain free and felt as good as new. Paul was now able to resume golfing again pain free.
Stem cell signaling is a highly effective and well tolerated treatment option for medial epicondylitis or golfers elbow. The advantage of this therapy is that it provides fast long term results within a short amount of time for most patients. This is very attractive to patients who live active lives and like activities such as golfing.
