Distal Biceps Tendon Partial Tear
Regenerative Medicine for Lateral 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 chronic pain in elbows. It refers to damages 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 most common in patients over the age of 30. Many people with tennis elbow avoid surgery and steroid injections. At Wisconsin Regenerative Medicine, we offer an effective, non-invasive alternative to steroid injections and surgery. Our procedures treat all the underlying damages that cause the elbow pain. We use stem cell therapy and our advanced form of PRP – platelet rich plasma therapy – plus other regenerative therapy options.
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.
Regenerative Medicine for Distal Biceps Tendon Partial Tear
The bicep muscle helps to keep the shoulder steady and stable. It also aids in rotating the forearm and bending the elbows. A tendon that holds the muscle and bone together is found at the end of the bicep. The biceps tendons attach 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 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 due to 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 easily occur during heavy lifting without bending the elbow. In a scenario where the elbow joints are 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. In addition, those who smoke cigarettes are at a higher risk for distal bicep tendon tears. This is because cigarettes affect the nutrition in the tendon while corticosteroids increase weakness in the muscles and tendons.
Amniotic Regenerative Cell Therapy
Amniotic regenerative cell therapy is one of the newest and most cutting-edge therapies for chronic joint pain. Amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy offers patients 3 essential properties for healing and restoring joint health:
- A high concentration of regenerative cells
- Hyaluronic Acid for joint lubrication and movement
- Anti-inflammatory cytokines and cellular growth factors essential for building new joint tissue
Since amniotic derived regenerative cell therapy is not derived from embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue, there are no ethical issues with the treatment. The amniotic regenerative cell therapy consists of an injection directly into the painful area. The therapy has the potential to actually alter the course of the condition and not simply mask the pain. This therapy has significant potential for those in pain, and could actually repair structural problems while treating pain and inflammation simultaneously. When the amniotic cell material is obtained, it comes from consenting donors who have undergone elective c-sections. The fluid is processed at an FDA regulated lab, and is checked for a full slate of diseases per FDA guidelines. The amniotic material has been used over 60,000 times in the US with no adverse events reported. It acts as an immunologically privileged material, meaning it has NOT been shown to cause any rejection reaction in the body. This means there is no graft versus host problem.
