What Is Regenerative Medicine For Elbow Pain?
Regenerative medicine treatments, such as PalinGen Flow injections, are designed for elbow pain treatment. Whether your pain is present in the inner or outer elbow, the natural proteins of regenerative medicine injections may be able to relieve your symptoms.
Regenerative medicine is designed to regenerate damaged tissue. The active components of regenerative treatments are growth factors and proteins, taken from the human body. Regenerative treatments, such as PalinGen Flow, direct these cells to the affected area in the elbow. Once the natural fluid is applied, the damage in your elbow can be regenerated to form new, healthy tissue.
How Will Regenerative Medicine Relieve My Elbow Pain?
Inflammation of the joints, tendons, and other tissue surrounding the elbow bone, results in elbow pain. This is why regenerative medicine uses natural, anti-inflammatory proteins called cytokines, and is why regenerative medicine injections have been shown to relieve pain. In addition, the natural growth factors and mesenchymal cells found in these treatments have the ability to promote tissue repair and regeneration.
What Is Used In Regenerative Medicine Treatments For Elbow Pain?
PalinGen Flow contains hyaluronic acid, which helps your body naturally produce cartilage. Powered with hyaluronic acid and your body’s own proteins, regenerative medicine treatments can lubricate the elbow joint and reverse elbow joint degeneration.
How Is The Treatment Performed?
The procedure takes between five to ten minutes and can be done at the doctor’s office. The medicine is injected, by the doctor, into the elbow joint. Patients usually experience no pain, though an anesthetic may be used, if desired.
Most patients only need a single treatment in order to experience significant pain relief. PalinGen Flow and other treatments may start relieving pain within one to two weeks, though full recovery may take months.
