What is Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow, also called lateral epicondylitis, is a condition characterized by pain and inflammation that are typically felt on the outside of the elbow.
Tennis elbow occurs when you overwork the tendons that connect your forearm muscles to the outside of your elbow, causing them to get inflamed and injured. This usually happens when you engage in any activity that involves repetitive swinging, such as playing tennis—hence its name. Repetitive strain on your tendons can lead to tiny tears in it.
How WE Get Great Results with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Theapy
PRP treatments are a safe and effective procedure that basically boosts your body’s natural healing response and focuses it on a particular area of injury — in this case, at the elbow where the damaged tendons are.
In this procedure, some of your blood is drawn, then spun in a centrifuge, a laboratory device used to separate and concentrate the platelets from the other components of your blood. These platelets contain “growth factors” that stimulate the production of wound-healing cells. A solution with a concentrated level of these platelets is then reinjected at the site of the injury. This promotes healthy tissue regeneration and the quick, successful healing of the tendon tears.
