Elbow Q & A
Why does my elbow hurt?
To determine how to best treat your elbow pain, Dr. Silva conducts a physical evaluation, discusses your lifestyle habits, reviews any prior imaging studies, and may perform a diagnostic ultrasound evaluation.
What options do I have for treating my elbow pain?
Dr. Silva’s goal is to resolve the underlying cause of your joint dysfunction to provide long term outcomes. He may recommend lifestyle changes, dietary changes and supplements, physical therapy, joint bracing, and other types of beneficial interventions to help reduce your symptoms. He can also recommend regenerative therapies such as:
- Prolotherapy: injections that irritate injured tissues to stimulate healing
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP): injectable serum with a high concentration of platelets, which contain growth-factors that repair tissues
- Cellular Therapy: your own cells injected into damaged tissue and bone to stimulate a healing response and regrowth
Dr. Silva uses ultrasound and x-ray guidance when administering injectable therapies to ensure that the healing agents are delivered precisely to the area of injury.
