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:
- Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy that uses growth factors from your own blood to accelerate healing of your joint structures
- Prolotherapy uses a variety of irritants or proliferants to trigger the body’s innate healing mechanisms which will strengthen the joints
- Stem cell therapy uses cells and growth factors derived from your own bone marrow to regenerate damaged tissues. This is the most powerful form of the regenerative procedures
Get to the root cause of your elbow pain and heal your painful joints from the inside out. Contact Dr. Silva today by calling the Interventional Orthopedics of Washington office or using the “Book Appointment” button.
