The 2014 French Open has been absolutely thrilling. It has had all the making of a fantastic Grand Slam with upsets, stunning fiver setters, and watching some of the best in the world play. Players like Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, Novac Djokovic, David Ferrer, Maria Sharapova all have fought hard. Congratulations to Rafael Nadal in his record breaking 9th French Open win, he is now the official King of Clay!

Whats awesome is that the summer season is filled with Tennis Grand Slams. Besides the French Open, next is Wimbledon, and then right afterward in August is the U.S. Open.

For Tennis and Golf players alike, the summer season is special as we can get outside and play the sports that we love. Unfortunately though, we may not be as malleable as the professionals and sometimes we can get injured.

Golf Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis) and Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis) are painful injuries that prevent us from playing. This injuries occur due to overuse or if one rushes too quickly back into the sport. With Golf and Tennis Elbow, rest, ice, and possibly physical therapy usually does the trick but if you continue to experience chronic elbow pain, you may actually need surgery.

Fortunately, there is another option that has proven to be a a viable alternative to surgery, a way to prevent surgery and it’s potential risks, complications, and recovery time. This new option is know as Regenerative Medicine. 
Regenerative Medicine is special because it is natural. It uses healing properties from your own body to stimulate the recovery for your injury. Regenerative treatments are non-surgical and non-invasive and have very little risk. There are no hospital visits and little recovery time.

In Stem Cell Therapy, non-controversial Adult Stem cells are taken from the fat cells in your body and the re-injected into the damaged elbow. The stem cells act as a “repairman” for elbow creating new and healthy tissue and restoring old damaged tissue. The joint and ligament is repaired through this process.

Superstar athletes like Rafael Nadal and Tiger Woods have been treating their sports injuries with Platelet Rich Plasma for many years with great success! Dr. Benjamin Bieber of Cross Bay PMR has extensive experience treating tennis and golf elbow using Regenerative medicine. Every option should be exhausted before deciding on surgery because of the risk, invasiveness, and long-term recovery period.

Regenerative medicine is a proven alternative that can prevent surgery all together. We recommend that you come in for a consultation to see if we can prevent surgery for you. Call 718-835-0100 today to schedule an appointment!
