What is a PRP elbow pain injection?

The procedure involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then separating the platelets from the other blood cells using a centrifuge. Platelets are a type of blood cell that are involved in the clotting process and also contain growth factors that can stimulate tissue healing. Next, the medical provider injects the concentrated platelets back into the patient at the site of the injury or pain.

Is there any downtime?

PRP injections are generally considered to be safe, with few reported side effects. However, as with any medical procedure, there are risks involved and it’s important to discuss these with your medical provider before proceeding.

 

Treatment results.

PRP injections can be used in the early, mild and moderate stages where evidence supports benefit. However, it is not appropriate to have PRP treatment when the joint has severe changes.

PRP injections have been found to be more effective than hyaluronic acid and steroid injections.

Who is a good candidate?

Not everyone is a good candidate for our PRP elbow pain treatment, and the last thing we want to do is promise an elbow pain treatment to someone unlikely to benefit from it. When you come in for a consultation, we will sit down with you to learn and evaluate your elbow pain. If you are a good candidate, we will develop a treatment specifically tailored to your needs.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment may be recommended for people experiencing tennis elbow or growth elbow. PRP treatment may be considered when other treatments, such as medications, physical therapy, or rest, have not been effective in relieving pain or improving function.

Tennis elbow:

Tennis elbow is caused by swelling of the tendons that allow your wrist to bend backward away from your palm. It can occur from an acute injury, degeneration of the tendon, or irritation from repetitive motions.

Golf elbow:

Golfer’s elbow is inflammation where your forearm muscles’ tendons connect to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The discomfort may expand to your forearm and wrist. It’s like tennis elbow, but you don’t have to play sports to develop this problem.

Activities that require you to clench your fingers or use your wrists regularly can cause golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow.

Frequently Asked Questions.

Can regenerative treatments help relieve chronic pain?2023-11-01T23:39:09+00:00

Regenerative cell procedures can provide relief of chronic pain by potentially healing damaged tissue, building new tissue, reducing inflammation and preventing scar tissue from forming in the injured area.

Are the risks lower with regenerative procedures compared to surgery?2023-11-01T23:39:33+00:00
