Elbow pain can make you suddenly drop what you’re holding or be a dull ache that gets worse as you use it. Be it acute and sudden or chronic and gradual, both types of pain limit your ability and make life harder than it needs to be.

The VisCare-Flex® program focuses on treating elbow pain associated with degenerative conditions like arthritis. This treatment protocol re-nourishes the joint to restore the lubricating fluid to improve range of motion and function, which ultimately alleviates pain. VisCare-Flex® was designed to address all the factors that have contributed or are contributing to your elbow pain to help you eliminate the need for surgery.
Progeni-Flex™ is a regenerative treatment program that rebuilds tendons, ligaments and cartilage tissue with regenerative therapy and platelet rich plasma. We often recommend this as a treatment for acute injuries and patients experiencing early signs of arthritis. Progeni-Flex™ allows you to control the breakdown of cartilage and rebuild healthy tissue before it’s too late. This advanced regenerative medicine treatment program is also ideal for athletes and the “weekend warrior” who want to stay active despite chronic or acute injuries.
Why Non-Surgical Solutions?
Orthopedic and sports medicine has made tremendous advancements over the past decade. These advancements are cleared by the FDA and provide new options for patients to help them harness their body’s natural healing potential. Another major benefit our non-surgical approach offers is little-to-no downtime. We encourage patients to explore these options before going under the knife and through an exhaustive rehabilitation process.
