The elbow connects the forearm to the upper arm and so it has a lot of connective tissues surrounding it. With all of these connections, a lot of things can go wrong, from tendon tears to pinched nerves, and when this happens it doesn’t just cause pain to the elbow, but it can also lead to pain elsewhere in the arm. Elbow pain can also be caused by an injury elsewhere in the body such as a pinched nerve in the neck.

Lateral Epicondylitis is a common source of elbow pain, also known as tennis elbow. This painful condition is caused by small tears in the side of the elbow where the tendons connect to the bone from outside of the joint. It causes pain when moving and restricts the movement of the arm. This condition is most common in those 30 years of age or older.
At Regenerative Medicine of South Jersey, we offer an effective, non-invasive alternative to steroid injections and surgery. We use regenerative cell therapy and our advanced form of PRP plus other regenerative procedures to help treat the underlying damages that cause this condition. This therapy will help heal the tendon tears and give you back movement and help you live pain-free.
Golfer’s Elbow has an abundance of different names that you may recognize, including climber’s elbow, little league elbow, pitcher’s elbow, hand shaking politician’s elbow, and rowing elbow. The medical term, however, is epicondylitis. Golfer’s Elbow is a form of tendonitis where the inner side of the elbow in the tendons attached to the joints are inflamed, causing mild to acute pain in the area.
Golfer’s Elbow can result from damage to tendons and muscles responsible for controlling the fingers and wrist. Continual swinging, gripping, or flexing can create pulls and micro-tears in the tendons, which results in golfer’s elbow. This can lead to the formation of calcium deposits and scar tissues. Other activities including hammering, painting, moving the mouse on a computer, chopping wood, and cooking can also lead to injury, along with athletics. Our regenerative treatments address this damage at the root cause, resulting in an elimination of pain so you can go back to living your optimal life.
Distal Biceps Tendon Partial Tear
Your biceps help to keep the shoulders steady. They also assist in rotating the forearm and bending the elbow. A tendon that holds the muscle and bone together can be found at the end of the bicep. Tendons attach the bicep muscle from the shoulder to the elbow. A tear on this tendon causes you to lose strength in your arm, which can ultimately lead to an inability to turn the arm, forcefully, from the palms downwards and upwards. This tendon tear can be complete or partial. A complete tear can split the tendon into two detached sections, but a partial tear does not split the tendon completely.
A distal biceps tendon tear typically occurs as a result of sudden injury as opposed to a result of other medical conditions. The tear can typically occur during heavy lifting without bending the elbows. When elbow joints are forcefully straightened the distal tendon gets separated from the bicep. Our experts can help treat and heal a distal biceps tendon tear with regenerative treatments that target the root cause of your pain, helping you live pain-free.
