- Regenerative Medicine: The stem cell treatment process involves extracting regenerative cells from the patient’s body and then injecting the cells directly into the affected area of the Biceps Tendon. The cells can transform into the type of cell necessary for healing. The addition of platelet rich plasma (PRP) can increase the effectiveness of the cell repair work by amplifying the activity of the regenerative cells. Stem cell treatment is a safe alternative to surgery since the procedure will only use the stem cells and platelets from the patient’s own body. This means that anybody, regardless of their age, could undergo stem cell treatment.
- Pain Management: A cortisone injection into the injured tendon may reduce pain and accelerate the rehabilitation process.
- Chiropractic: Chiropractic management utilizes manual therapy and therapeutic exercise in an effort to diminish pain and inflammation, promote tendon healing, improve strength, enhance flexibility and control functional stresses.
- Physical Therapy: A complete tear may require surgery. Following surgery, physical therapy can help aid in recovery. Treatments include: range of motion exercises, elbow and shoulder strengthening exercises, stretching, soft tissue mobilization, modalities, activity specific training.
