Tennis elbow treatment with PRP

Tennis elbow can be a chronic debilitating syndrome that is often refractory to conservative care that has a high quality-of-life and work impact. It is often caused by overuse, strain or injury to the tendon that attaches to the bone on the outside of the elbow (lateral epicondyle), often from painting, hammering, using a screwdriver or from playing tennis. There are billions of dollars of direct and indirect costs to the treatment of lateral epicondylitis. Conventional therapies such as anti-inflammatory meds, physiotherapy or steroid injections, do not treat the underlying pathology.
