16 Nov Elbow Pain? Ask for PRP Therapy
Are you suffering from chronic elbow pain? Does your golf swing feel painful and your grip weak? It may mean you are experiencing medial epicondylitis, commonly known as Golfer’s Elbow.
In medial epicondylitis, you feel pain where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. Sounds familiar?
The Golfer’s elbow pain is not limited to golfers and can even spread to your forearm and even wrist. Anyone who uses their wrists repeatedly or clenches their fingers too often is at risk of developing golfer’s elbow.
Another similar condition is Tennis elbow, which affects the outside of the elbow.
Traditional treatment options include –
- anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen
- steroid injections
- elbow brace
- physical therapy
- NO golf!
But none of this is a long term solution.
Modern regenerative medicine, namely injections of platelet rich plasma (PRP) can greatly benefit elbow pain sufferers, whether they are experiencing golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow.
Targeted PRP injections allow the tendon to heal and even regenerate, something which is not possible with any other treatment option. The tendon can then grow back on to the troubled area of the epicondyle. Pain relief is experienced within 2-3 weeks and your tendon grows stronger.
Don’t allow the pain of golfer’s or tennis elbow keep you away from your favorite activities. Regenerative medicine treatment with PRP injections for golfer’s and tennis elbow can help you get back to your game!
