Elbow Q&A

What causes elbow pain?

Elbow pain can result from a sudden injury or years of use. Common elbow problems that can cause pain include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Elbow instability
  • Ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tear

Other problems can lead to elbow pain as well. Fortunately, nearly all issues that trigger elbow pain are treatable. 

What is the newest treatment for chronic elbow pain?

Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center offers one of the newest and most advanced treatments for chronic elbow pain, a nonsurgical procedure called Regenexx

There are two Regenexx procedures, and both options use healing agents from your body to treat your elbow pain without surgery.


Regenexx-SD is bone marrow concentrate from an area at the back of your hip. Your bone marrow contains a high proportion of master cells. These master cells can repair any type of injury because they can turn into any type of cell needed.

These cells can also duplicate themselves, bringing even more healing action into play. 

Your body contains these master cells, but they decrease with age. When you suffer a major injury, there might not be enough cells at the injury site to stimulate full healing. 

Regenexx-SD overcomes this problem by harvesting those cells and concentrating them. Your provider injects the bone marrow concentrate into the area of the elbow that needs healing. 


Regenexx-SCP includes super-concentrated platelet-rich plasma and platelet lysate procedures, which involve harvesting platelets from your blood. 

Platelets are particularly effective in repairing joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscle injuries, but as with the master healing cells, you have fewer and fewer platelets as you age.

The Regenexx-SCP procedures essentially concentrate platelets to help your cells work harder. Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center uses advanced platelet procedures to produce the purest and highest-quality platelet concentrates for maximum healing. 

What results can I expect from Regenexx procedures in the elbow?

Regenexx procedures offer impressive outcomes for elbow pain. Following Regenexx, patients saw their elbow function increase from 69% to 97%. They reported a remarkable 37% decrease in shoulder pain only one month post-treatment. 

Elbow problems are now treatable without surgery. Regenexx has helped thousands of patients get their lives back, and it could be right for you. Call the Coastal Regenerative Orthopedics & Wellness Center office or book a consultation online today.
