Elbow Treatments

Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are the world’s most advanced regenerative injection treatments for treating arthritis, overuse conditions such as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, and other conditions that cause elbow pain.

Two common forms of tendinitis may involve the elbow, namely, Medial epicondylitis (golfer’s elbow) and Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow).

The joint and surrounding area is painful and may be red,swollen and hot.

Medica Pain Management Procedures are likely to be an excellent treatment option. In recent years, several studies have shown the effectiveness of platelet rich plasma (PRP) in treating elbow tendon and ligament issues. In fact, there are very few cases where surgery would be recommended for anything but the most severe elbow injuries.
Alternatively the patient would have been given non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and pain killers for symptomatic treatment only, on the other hand PRP promotes

healing of the inflamed or injured tendon.The procedure is done under local anesthetic in no longer than an hour.
