What causes elbow pain?

Elbow pain can become a significant source of everyday discomfort—it can be demoralizing to feel pain whenever you try to lift something or hug someone. While most cases of chronic or sudden elbow pain come from overuse, the pain could also be caused by an injury. Here are some of the most common elbow pain causes:

  • One-time injuries Trauma-related elbow problems are the easiest to diagnose, since they can be easily related to a recent traumatic event. Common injuries include elbow dislocation, elbow fracture, and muscle or ligament strain (sprain). Injured elbows are usually defined by sharp, reoccurring pain.
  • Stress fracture. Like the name suggests, stress fractures refer to cracks in the bones that are caused by repetitive mechanical activity and overuse. Stress fractures are common among athletes, but can occur due to weakened bones or lack of nutrients.
  • Cartilage damage. The elbow joint is lined with something called articular cartilage —a tissue that prevents friction and preserves the bone—and is supported by many little ligaments that help support the elbow. Over time, articular cartilage is subject to degradation or tear, causing injury and pain.

Can surgery be the answer to elbow pain?

For years now, the general consensus was that to address serious hip problems, one has to go under the knife, despite the risks of a major surgery. New evidence, however, puts into question the main value proposition of surgery: namely, its quickness and effectiveness. Here are a few studies that test how effective surgery really is in addressing hip problems:

  • In 2018, a study with 26 patients measured the effectiveness of surgical treatment for the Tennis elbow. It found that the surgery was  no more effective than a placebo treatment within a 5 year period after the surgery, a 2012 study found
  • What is more, another 2018 study has found that most alternative non-surgical elbow treatments, such as steroid injections, physical therapy, acupuncture and anti-inflammatories also ineffective in relieving elbow pain
  • When treating simple elbow dislocation there is little evidenc that a surgery helps patients relieve the pain, increase the range of elbow motion, or prevent chronic instability

CELLAXYS Elbow Therapy® employs only non-invasive treatments that enhance your body’s ability to heal itself—like stem cell therapy. Instead of experimenting with high-risk, low reward surgical techniques, our doctors use stem cells—the natural building block of our bodies—to regenerate the damaged elbow area.

Stem Cell Therapy Powering Top Athletes

For years now, forms of stem cell therapy have been used by top athletes in adjunction to traditional orthopaedic measures—such as surgery and injections—to heal quicker and grow stronger. Since the late 1990s, a number of leading athletes, including Tiger Woods and Alex Rodriguez, have publically lead the transition away from traditional orthopaedic alternatives such as cortisone (which reduces pain quickly, but damages the joint tissue irreversibly.) With high complication risk and long recovery times of surgery, stem cell therapy has become one of the go-to therapy methods for the sports elite.

With roots in top-level athletics, stem cell therapy focuses on safety and efficiency. Since stem cells are the natural building blocks of our body, there is virtually no risk of rejection; and, since the method is non-invasive, the recovery time is minimal (4-6 weeks).

How Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

Human bodies are made out of small particles called cells—nerve cells, bone cells, blood cells, muscle cells, and so on.

Stem cells are the natural ‘repair’ cells of our bodies. Their ‘job’ is to morph into a type of cell that is damaged and replace it. For example, when you suffer an injury, it is your stem cells that are trying to regenerate the damaged tissue. Stem cells are involved at every stage of human life—right from the conception.

During CELLAXYS Elbow Therapy®, stem cells are harvested from your body, processed into a more concentrated form, and re-injected precisely into the location of the injury (to repair the damage)

This way, your body’s natural healing resources are right where they’re needed most.

Dr. Otten Explains How Elbow Pain Is Difficult to Diagnose, and Even More Difficult to Treat

To justify surgical means, traditional orthopaedic practices will often argue that there are no good alternatives to deal with elbow pain. In reality, surgical procedures are frequently as ineffective and dangerous as they are unnecessary. Dr. Otten, an ambassador of orthobiologic treatment for elbow problems, explains why surgery should be the last option on the list.
