Greetings once again from your friends at Bay Colony Chiropractic serving all of Galveston County, Texas and the surrounding
area. We produce podcasts and blogs as a public service to educate the general public about how and why Americans increasingly include chiropractic care in their pain management plan. From our previous podcasts, we know that stem cell therapy can be beneficial to those with bad knees, shoulders, back, and neck. In this episode, we discuss how stem cell therapy can help with chronic elbow problems, like repetitive use issues. We also cover how stem cell therapy can be used to help acute injuries like a hyper-extended elbow.
We invite you to listen and read along with Dr. Sanders as today she discusses how stem cell therapy can help those with elbow pain.
Narrator: Welcome to the “Regenerative Wellness Podcast with Dr. Sanders”. I’m Darren Kincaid along with Dr. Donna Sanders from Bay Colony Chiropractic here in Dickinson, Texas. Dr. Sanders has been practicing chiropractic care for over 30 years staying on the forefront of the most comprehensive and advanced chiropractic care techniques available today. This podcast is dedicated to educating the people of Galveston County and the surrounding area on how to live younger, stronger, and better lives. The topic of today’s podcast is: “Can Stem Cell Therapy Help With Acute and Chronic Elbow Pain”?
Well alright, Dr. Sanders from your previous podcasts we know that stem cells can help with bad knees, shoulders, backs, necks, and so on. I’m curious about elbows. Can stem cells help with my chronic tennis elbow problem?
Dr. Sanders: Yes, good question. We’ve definitely seen a lot of patients with elbow and arm issues resolved with stem cell therapy. But like I’ve said in previous pod casts we don’t use stem cells to say we’re curing anything. We’re not treating anything specific. We’re helping with inflammation and degeneration. In the case of chronic elbow problems like tendinitis, you’ve got a lot of inflammation and degeneration of the bone, joint, cartilage. When we inject stem cells into the area, they are going to be attracted to the inflammation and create regeneration. This takes down the inflammation and we generate health cells. We are seeing amazing response from our patients who have elbow issues.
Narrator: So that’s kind of a repetitive injury, repetitive stress. I think mine was caused by doing excessive push ups, but for people with carpal tunnel syndrome, stem cells can be used for them as well?
Dr. Sanders: Yes. Repetitive action trauma is caused by something you do repeatedly all day long. Things such as using the cell phone, tablets, or computers. We’re repeatedly using those muscles all day in one way. That creates inflammation. In the case of carpal tunnel, the inflammation is in the tissue in the wrist. It swells up and causes pressure on the nerves of the hand and restricting blood flow. With the tennis elbow, that is often caused by repetitive action.
The stem cells will be attracted to anything that is inflamed and will create regeneration so the inflammation will calm down and relieve pressure on the nerve. It puts life back into that body part. So we’re seeing tremendous results. Also, we’re putting those muscles back into balance.
Narrator: Well, very cool! That recovers the repetitive use issues, but what about injuries from say sports or automobile accidents? Can it be used for that as well?
Dr. Sanders: Absolutely. We had a really bad case recently where she took a super-bad fall. She landed on her arm out extended and jammed her elbow. The whole thing just swelled up. She had been using ice, medication, and physical therapy and was getting absolutely no relief. She found out about our stem cell therapy and decided to give it a try. We injected the stem cells in there. Of course, I’ve mentioned before about how they release molecules that are anti-inflammatory. When she started regenerating the tissue, she regained full use of that elbow, wrist, and shoulder…everything that was involved in that injury.
Narrator: Well that’s so amazing, Dr. Sanders. I know that you can’t say it’s a cure, but it sure seems like a cure to me.
Dr. Sanders: Believe me, it’s hard for me not to describe it as a cure also.
