Stem Cell Therapy For Elbow Pain in Jacksonville

POST-PROCEDURE RECOVERY

As our stem cell therapy does not require any surgical operation and is an outpatient procedure, our patients are

able to walk out of our offices on the same day and resume low-impact activities immediately.

Some patients have reported experiencing mild pain for the first 48-72 hours post-procedure. This is due mostly to

the absence of their normal anti-inflammatory and pain relief drugs. Stem cells are signaled by localized

inflammation and will begin the regenerative process within these damaged areas. As a result, a gradual decrease in

discomfort is to be expected once regeneration begins, and inflammation decreases.

HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT BEFORE RESUMING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY?

We would advise allowing a minimum of two weeks before resuming any rigorous physical activity.

Additionally, it is advised to:

  • Avoid NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory medications) for up to two weeks post-procedure.
  • Get as much rest as possible during the first 24-48 hours.
  • Restrict the elbow to general use for the first 2 weeks.
  • Restrict cardio up to weeks 3-4.
  • Restrict weightlifting and running up to weeks 3-4.
  • Closely monitor your elbow during the process of regeneration.

Your specific treatment protocol for your condition will be individualized by your therapy needs and current severity

of illness. More specific answers can be provided after the consult and physical.

HOW A HEALTHY ELBOW FUNCTIONS

The elbow is the visible joint between the upper and lower parts of the arm. It includes prominent landmarks such as

the olecranon, the elbow pit, the lateral and medial epicondyles, and the elbow joint.

The elbow joint is the synovial hinge joint between the humerus in the upper arm and the radius and ulna in the

forearm which allows the forearm and hand to be moved towards and away from the body.

Conservative treatments usually work for golfer’s elbow. But if you’re still having pain after three to six months, you

may be a great candidate for stem cell therapy. These procedures can regenerate damaged parts of a tendon,

promote healing, and reduce pain.

DEGENERATION OF THE ELBOW

Medial and Lateral Epicondylitis, also known as “tennis elbow” and “Golfer’s elbow” are two of the most common

forms of elbow pain in Jacksonville. Approximately 80-95 percent of patients have success with nonsurgical

treatment. If you’ve been experiencing worsening pain in your elbow and forearm, click here to book an

What are the method(s) used to administer stem cells?

IM (intramuscular)

IVP (intravenous push)

IV infusion, IA (intra-articular)

SQ (subcutaneous)

Our stem cell therapy plans and methods are determined by the patient’s personal needs during

consultation/physical exam.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A STEM CELL PROCEDURE?

If you are suffering from elbow pain in Jacksonville, you have options. Whether you are currently taking

anti-inflammatory medications to cope with your pain or are considering surgery. Click here to book an

appointment today to see one of our stem cell therapy providers and get a comprehensive consultation.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY PROCEDURE

During your scheduled consultation, you will be instructed to avoid consuming any nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory

drugs (NSAIDs) up to two weeks prior to the procedure. These medications function to reduce the inflammation that

stem cells seek to repair.
