What Causes Bicep Tendonitis?

The two tendons that allow the bicep muscle to attach to the arm can become overused from intense physical activity or deteriorate naturally from aging, resulting in bicep tendonitis. Like most other tendons and ligaments, the bicep tendons can become inflamed and cause pain all throughout the upper arm. Even a violent or very sudden stretching of the elbow or shoulder can tear your bicep tendons, causing noticeable bruising, discomfort and difficulty rotating the arm.

Symptoms

While the bicep is solely the outer region of the upper arm, its tendons stretch from the shoulder all the way to your elbow: This is the reason that tenderness or pain in the elbow could be symptomatic of either tennis elbow or bicep tendonitis. That same pain can be felt when simply trying to move the arm from your shoulder. Assuming that your workouts became more strenuous activity that you would not otherwise do outside of exercise, soreness in general is very common, but swelling, tenderness and pain increasing overtime are usually not indicative of a good workout, but instead tendonitis.

Get a non-invasive treatment

It is not unusual for bicep tendonitis to become so severe that it requires corrective surgery. Ice and heat several times a day for weeks, followed by weeks, even months, of physical therapy are also among the most prescribed treatment plants. However, if you have a worse case of tendonitis, your prescription can range from simple acetaminophen to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (or NSAIDs).

There are a number of nonsurgical injections to choose from for bicep tendonitis, but none quite as controversial as corticosteroids: Anti-inflammatory medicines with steroid hormones to reduce swelling and arthritis. But overtime, these tend to weaken tendons and damage cartilage to the applied area(s). Most treatments of the condition are very minimal but not always permanent, and not all ‘permanent’ solutions are without invasive surgeries. However, a PRP or Stem Cell Therapy treatment is the definitive solution to both.

Stem Cell Therapy Explained

Due to their natural ability to transform into any other type of cell, stem cells can be taken not only from your own body, but from a different person (likely, the umbilical cord), and transplanted into your problem area. The cells will adapt and take on a different “form” as if they were there since the beginning.
Stem cells can be concentrated and activated. While many types of stem cells are a good starting point for practical use, it is the concentration and activation of the cells that has truly made it an effective therapy. Certified practitioners are able to tweak these cells to address exactly the problem you are facing.

How Does It Work?

  1. Stem Cell Extraction
  2. Concentration and Activation
  3. Stem Cells Transplanted to Problem Area
  4. The Cells Reduce Pain

PRP Therapy Explained

Platelet Rich Plasma is astoundingly simple in concept; your doctor or medical technician inject a laboratory made concentration that is created from your own blood. That is right, your own blood. Essentially, PRP is a specialized healing plasma.

The benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma will have you feeling completely revitalized, as it is your own natural plasma, which has had the most platelet-dense part of your blood, added back into it. The result is a highly-charged infusion of plasma with a particularly high content of platelets.

How Does It Work?

  1. Take a Blood Sample
  2. Separate Blood into Various Components
  3. Removes Platelets and Stem Cells
  4. Platelets Injected into Injured Area

Doctor Examination + Tests

Through the Yergason’s Test, your doctor may ask you to hold out your arm and simply bend the elbow to a 90-degree angle. Should this be painful or undoable for the patient, this is usually a sign of tendonitis or related conditions. The Speed’s Test is very similar and more indicative of bicep tendonitis (specifically), as you keep the arm extended while bending the elbow 30 degrees. Pain in the elbow up to the shoulder while performing more accurately pinpoints the area of your tendonitis.

Preparing for your appointment

Through a Cellaxys stem cell or PRP procedure, your recovery time is greatly reduced compared to surgery, your full range of motion will be completely restored and you are likely to start walking comfortably right after your procedure is finished. To prepare for your treatment, it is best to keep your cells full of rich nutrients through a well balanced diet and proper hydration. The procedure simply collects your revitalizing stem cells from your fat tissue and strategically transplants them using an advanced vision technology to pinpoint the exact location of where the cells are needed.

Rehabilitation

Your recovery from your regenerative procedure will be swift and painless if you continue to get rest, drink plenty of fluids and ease back into your lifestyle over the following four weeks. Many patients have reported pain relief within the first week, but an ideal schedule of two weeks of rest and non-strenuous activity followed by two weeks of physical therapy to get everything back to normal.

Caring and kind. Surgery was over quickly and I am recovering nicely. Too soon to tell how much improvement I will get, but improvement was noticed quickly.

Had five knee operations. Surgeons just kept cutting torn meniscus, grinding arthritis. Knee hurt all the time, misery. Saw ad about Stem Cell from Cellaxys. Took my MRIs into Dr. Otten. I’m 65 and been active all my life. My knee was making it unable to do anything. Dr. Otten said I was a perfect candidate for stem cell. I was skeptical, but knee replacement only thing left. Had Stem Cell procedure done at end of October 2021. Had major swelling which isn’t always normal. Gradually my knee started feeling better and better. Range of motion improved. Today is Jan 6, 2022. Just walked 3.5 miles. Pain FREE! Have a booster PRP shot coming up which is included in the price. Dr. Otten returned several calls when I was having swelling, unheard of from other Doctors. Stem Cell isn’t covered by insurance, but, it’s absolutely amazing. A big Thumbs up to Dr. Otten and Staff. Best money I’ve ever spent.

I was greeted warmly the moment I entered. Doctor Otten is charming and very thorough in explaining the procedure. Carlos explained the finances involved very carefully and is most courteous, professional and patient. I have confidence in CELLAXYS and this will be the first time in my life I eagerly await having a medical procedure done!

Dr. Otten is the best!! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. My wife had several procedures done on her knees and back from a traumatic fall and with the help from Dr. Otten and Biologics…she has benefitted greatly from the treatments. Because of her recovery and the incredible care Dr. Otten gave her…after I tore my Achilles Tendon I knew Dr. Otten was the phone call I needed to make. Although I live in Florida now, it was worth the travel back to Las Vegas for treatment with Dr. Otten at Cellaxys. The care is unparalleled. I am still in the recovery process but can attest to the confidence that the biologic therapy is helping with my healing. Dr. Otten is the most caring, thoughtful and empathic doctor that has you and your recovery as a priority. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

The entire staff from the second I walked in, was warm and friendly and caring. No waiting, imagine that! I was escorted into a room where the doctor had already been reviewing my x-rays and had them up to share with me. No secrets here. The doctor himself sat down with me immediately and listened to my history and my pain and then discussed my X-rays and showed me how he could help. He explained the three types of stem cell Therapies and let me choose what I wanted and then he explained to me the process from the moment I would walk in until the moment I would leave Plus he was very candid on my recovery time and what I could and could not do. I will have a two-week follow-up and then a booster in 3 months. I feel like everyone there is my friend.

The doctor was very professional, knowledgeable and took the time to explain all the different options available to me. I like that he took the TIME to know exactly what was going on with my knees. He didn't rush through the appointment, which was refreshing considering that's how it is with a lot of doctor appointments these. days.Every step of the way he explained what was going on. I've had zero issues all the way through to the end. And now a year or more after I'm still doing well. It was well worth the money. The entire team is professional.
