Dube Stem Cells
Epicondylitis, often known as tennis elbow, is the most common health issue affecting the elbow joint, with around 1-3% of adults experiencing the condition. Typical treatment for tennis elbow consists of rest and immobilization, physiotherapy, cortisone injections, and the use of platelet-rich plasma injections, a type of regenerative medicine. Applying such treatments can help to avoid the need for surgical intervention, unless dysfunction and elbow pain persist.
Regenerative treatments for elbow pain related to tennis elbow or other issues work by encouraging the growth of healthy cartilage, bone, and connective tissues. This helps to relieve pain and restore mobility, strength, and range of motion.
Some of the most frequent causes of foot pain include conditions that respond well to stem cell therapies and regenerative treatments. These can include but are not limited to:
- Sprains and strains
- Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Diabetic foot problems
Regenerative medicine can help avoid the need for surgical intervention and can be used to enhance the benefits of surgery or other treatments. The type of treatment prescribed to help relieve foot pain will depend on the cause of the pain. The use of regenerative therapies aims to encourage the growth of healthy cartilage, bone, and connective tissues. Damage and diseases such as osteoarthritis in these tissues are common causes of foot pain. Such treatments are often able to not only relieve painful symptoms but to also restore mobility, strength, and range of motion.
Osteoarthritis of the Hands, Hip or Knee
Osteoarthritis is one of the top five causes of disability in adults and can restrict a person’s ability to carry out everyday tasks, including personal care. The prognosis for people with hand, hip or knee osteoarthritis has long been considered poor, but newer regenerative treatments for these conditions are showing great success at reversing joint tissue damage and improving mobility and quality of life.
Regenerative treatments for injuries and osteoarthritis are an exciting advancement in orthopedic medicine. State-of-the-art treatments such as Platelet Rich Plasma Injections work by harnessing the body’s natural healing potential to repair damaged and diseased tissue and relieve pain and other symptoms.
Shoulder Injuries and Rotator Cuff Repair
According to the American Academy for Orthopedic Surgeons, around 7.5 million people each year in the US visit their doctor for advice and treatment of shoulder problems. More than 4 million of those visits are for rotator cuff problems, with rotator cuff tears often causing long-lasting pain and mobility issues.
Regenerative treatments aim to promote healing of damaged shoulder tissue to relieve painful symptoms of rotator cuff tears and other injuries. Such treatments can encourage the growth of healthy cartilage, bone, and other tissues in the shoulder joints, relieving stiffness and pain, and improving range of motion in the shoulder joint.
