Distal Biceps Tendon Partial Tear
Regenerative Medicine for Later Epicondylitis
Lateral epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow, lateral elbow pain, archer’s elbow, epitrochlear bursitis and shooter’s elbow, is a common source of pain in the elbow. It refers to the damage in the form of small tears in the lateral part of the elbow where the tendons attach to the bone from outside of the joint. It is common in people over the age of 30.
Many patients with tennis elbow want to avoid surgery and steroid injections. At Atlas Medical Center, our JointRenew Program™ is customized to specifically treat the tendons in the elbow that are inflamed and torn. By concentrating regenerative cells to the area of damage, we can help heal the small tears in the elbow. This unique system offers an effective, non-invasive alternative to steroid injections and surgery.
Regenerative Medicine for Golfer’s Elbow
This is also referred to as climber’s elbow, little league elbow, pitcher’s elbow, hand shaking politician’s elbow, and rowing elbow. Medically, it is referred to as epicondylitis. Golfer’s Elbow is a form of tendonitis where the inner side of the elbow becomes inflamed. The tendons that are attached to the joints and the muscle and bones in the forearm become inflamed.
Golfer’s Elbow results from the damage to the tendons and muscles that control fingers and wrist. Excess and continuous involvement of the muscles in the forearm or forceful finger and wrist movements cause pain and inflammation in the medial epicondyle of the elbow. Continual swinging, gripping, or flexing creates pulls and micro tears in the tendons, which can result in golfer’s elbow, and can lead to the formation of calcium deposits and scar tissues. Other activities such as hammering, painting, moving the mouse on a computer, chopping wood, and cooking can lead to injury along with athletics. Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ can help treat Golfer’s Elbow by increasing the number of regenerative cells to the area, treating the inflammation and the underlying cause of the condition and allowing it to repair naturally.
Regenerative Medicine for Distal Biceps Tendon Partial Tear
The bicep muscle helps to keep the shoulder steady. It also assists in rotating the forearm and bending the elbow. A tendon that holds the muscle and bone together is found at the end of the bicep. The biceps tendons attaches the bicep muscle from the shoulder to the elbow. A tear on this tendon causes a loss of strength in the arm, which ultimately leads to an inability to turn the arm forcefully from the palms downwards and upwards. The tendon tear can either be complete or partial. A complete tear can split the tendon in two detached sections, but a partial tear does not split the tendon entirely. A distal biceps tendon tear may arise as a result of heavy resistance used to forcefully bend the elbow or as a result of heavy resistance forced to straighten the elbow.
Distal biceps tendon tear typically occurs as a result of sudden injury and is not a result of other medical conditions. The tear can occur during heavy lifting without bending the elbows. In a situation where the elbow joints are forcefully straightened, the distal tendon gets separated from the bicep. Distal biceps tendon tear is mostly common among men who are 30 years of age and above. Those who smoke cigarettes are at a higher risk for distal biceps tendon tears. This is because cigarettes affect the nutrition in the tendon while corticosteroids increase weakness in the muscles and tendons.
Regenerative cells such as stem cells, growth factors, and cytokines are all necessary in assisting with repairing the tendon. If you have been diagnosed with a partial bicipital tendon tear, Atlas’ JointRenew Program™ can increase the number of regenerative cells to the biceps tendon, allowing it to heal and repair naturally. If you want to avoid surgery, call us for a free consultation.
Since 2001, we have been helping patients get relief from elbow pain even after other conventional treatments such as medications, cortisone injections, physical therapy and surgery have failed. Atlas’ unique, regenerative JointRenew Program™ is customized depending on your age, health, diagnosis and the severity of your condition. The program can include a combination of two or more of the following treatments: Stem Cell Therapy, Amniotic Cell Therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, and Advanced Cold Laser Therapy. The combination of treatments allows us to help accelerate the healing process by improving blood flow and increasing the number of regenerative cells to the area; which ultimately help relieve pain and aid in repair, rebuilding and regenerating the tissues in the joint. Unlike ‘traditional’ treatments that simply just mask the pain and are temporary, regenerative medicine treats the root of the problem and has sustainable results. We have a very high clinical success rate with treating even some of the more difficult conditions. In addition, our Board Certified, skilled, and experienced Medical professionals perform all injections under ultrasound or Fluoroscopy guidance, leaving you confident that the regenerative cells are being injected into the TARGETED area— which allows for the greatest chance for success!
