PRP Therapy for Elbow Pain

When inflammation, soreness and pain occur in or around the elbow, particularly the outer (lateral) part near the upper arm, it is often caused by a partial tear in the tendon fibers that connect the muscle to the bone. Thus, specific symptoms may include radiating pain outside of the elbow that extends to the forearm and even the back of the hand. Familiar terms for this type of elbow pain are “tennis elbow” or “golfer’s elbow,” although the exact definition is lateral epicondylitis, and this condition can affect anyone.

When it comes to pain and injuries involving tendons, PRP therapy is a superior treatment option, as it extracts the healing platelets from a patient’s own blood and then re-injects the platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the injured or damaged area. Specifically, individuals suffering from elbow pain note that PRP therapy provided significant pain relief and improved mobility in the short term, as well as at 12 weeks and up to 18 months following treatment (when compared to conventional treatments that included a corticosteroid injection.) Thus, in regard to healing of various tendinopathies, including the elbow, PRP therapy remains a valuable non-operative alternative.

Stem Cell Treatments for Elbow Pain Relief

When injected in its most concentrated form, stem cell treatments using a patient’s own rich blood platelets, facilitates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, enhances the recovery of damaged tissues, signals new blood vessel formation and bone regeneration. Since injured tendons receive very little blood, healing is notoriously slow. Yet, when injected, stem cells attract growth factors to an area of injury.

To begin, a small sample of a patient’s blood is taken. The blood is then spun at high speeds in a centrifuge machine, which separates the much-needed stem cells from the rest of the blood. Next, the stem cells (which attract growth factors) are injected directly into the area of damage in the elbow where they amplify healing.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Though steroids and painkillers work to provide temporary pain relief, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections have become a key component for complete wound healing and recovery of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints and other degenerative conditions. What’s more is that therapy using PRP is natural, as it promotes the body’s own formation of reparative cells that not only reduce pain but increase strength and endurance.

Dr. Danny keeps it real! With gratitude, I have decided to write this review. I got a few subtle services done with him and I have been really happy about it. I proudly say that I trust his insight and knowledge. He truly is a talented physician and works from his heart. I am fortunate to have found this place. Thank you Modern Aesthetica!

I was referred to Dr. Dan via a couple clients/friends. I went in there not really knowing what to expect...but I needed help filling in some lines without actual filler. He's honest and even told me I DIDN'T need things I though I might. When I say instant results...I mean it. Shocking! He's professional, courteous and straight to the point. It's been 3 days and I can't stop staring at my face...very well knowing the results I already see will be even better in 2 weeks. Amazing. Referring everyone I know!

Michael D.

Dr. Daniel has helped me with my fitness journey so much! He is a truly caring physician and was available for me every step of the way. A lot of weight loss and fitness doctors use the same template, but I KNOW he treats every patient specifically, and adjusts the regimen to tailor it to my needs.

I went to go see Dr. Danny recently and he treated with kit gloves. I couldn't be happier. He's a phenomenal doctor and what a beautiful facility.

Kayvan M.

I was referred to Dr. Danny by a friend who got great results with his fitness regimen. I had hit a plateau in terms of my results so that’s why I first went to Modern. I didn’t know what to expect but I was amazed at everything Dr. Danny shared with me. He gave me some great advice on a medicine based fitness regiment and customized something just for me. Loving the results. Thank you!

Stacey R.

I had a Vampire Facial here and the results were amazing. Dr. Danny made sure I looked great for my best friend's party 1 week after. Finding a great doctor in Los Angeles can be tough but I think I found a solid one here! If you want to look your VERY best, I highly recommend Dr. Danny and the entire staff at Modern Aesthetica!
