Anyone that suffers from Tendinopathy will know that the pain and discomfort of such a condition can be unrelenting. As Tendinopathy is a condition which affects the joints - i.e. the fingers, wrists, knees, ankles, hips etc. - ordinary tasks, and sometimes even basic movement, can feel like a Herculean task. It is a condition which the NHS approximate leaves 10 million people in the UK alone struggling on a daily basis.
Tendons are an essential component of our musculoskeletal system. Unfortunately, as with many health concerns, tendon injuries become increasingly common as we age. But a new range of treatments can now ease problems and help recovery - even without surgery.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
Tendons connect bones and muscles together. Our mobility can be severely limited by damage, an inevitable issue that arises over time. Not only are damaged tendons less strong, they heal slower, too. The most common issues include tendinopathies and tendonitis.
Combating tendon issues is a vast challenge for medical professionals. But drugs, steroid injections, and surgery are no longer the only options available; stem cells are reinventing treatment for tendon problems.

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
There two painful conditions occur both within and around tendons. They can be caused by overuse or stress on a tendon. As a result, the tendon swells, becomes painful to use, and loses functionality.
Tendonitis is most often caused by repetitive movements, for example, running, jumping, or heavy lifting. Certain professions and recreational sports can make these conditions worse or more likely.
The cause and severity of the issue affect how long it takes for the tendon to heal. Even the most chronic cases may never fully heal without specific treatments.
Patellar tendinopathy (or runner’s knee), lateral epicondylitis (or tennis elbow), medial epicondylitis (or golfer’s elbow), and gluteal tendinopathy.
Our experts can diagnose and identify the optimal treatment
Tendinopathy, tendinosis, and tendinitis have very similar symptoms. However, they are 3 vastly different conditions:
Tendinopathy is the degeneration of the collagen that forms the tendon in chronic conditions.
Tendonitis is the acute inflammation of the tendon as a result of micro-tears. Symptoms include minor pain, swelling, and some warmth local to the affected area.
Tendinosis is defined as the non-inflammatory degeneration of a tendon. It results in a change in the structure of a tendon and is often caused by repetitive strain injuries that aren’t given adequate time to heal. It typically takes several months to heal this condition as opposed to the short recovery time associated with tendonitis.
Treatments vary depending on the condition, for example, certain drugs can inhibit the reconstruction of a tendon.

Stem cell therapy
Stem Cells are harvested from a nominated donor, and can be found in either adipose cells (fat), bone marrow, or umbilical lining (as is the case with embryonic stem cells.
Whilst some people feel more comfortable making use of their own adult stem cells for treatment, others may pursue embryonic stem cells for their significantly-higher concentration. They are harvested very soon after birth in a GMP-regulated laboratory, and are always thoroughly screened for infection, genetic abnormality and disease in the lab prior to use.
Patients needn't worry about experiencing any pain whilst donating or receiving stem cells for treatment, as local anaesthetic is always used to ensure the patient is most comfortable throughout.
Recovery from Stem Cell treatment is swift, and should begin to alleviate arthritic pain relatively quickly.
During the first few days after treatment, you may notice some minor bruising, swelling, redness and tenderness around the injection sites, although this is shortlived. We simply ask that you refrain from air travel for a minimum of 5 days to allow the initial healing stages to occur without interference.
Specific aftercare will depend on your treatment area, although your practitioner will be more than happy to provide thorough instructions tailored to you following treatment.
