Do PRP Treatments for Tennis Elbow Work?

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a common cause of elbow pain. It can affect anybody who participates in sports or works, not just tennis players. Tennis elbow is treated with activity adjustment, exercise treatment, shockwave therapy, and injections. PRP injection for tennis elbow is more popular in recent years.

Understanding the Causes of Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a condition in which the muscles and tendons linking the arm and wrist become irritated or tear. Tendons, on the whole, have a poor blood supply and so heal more slowly than other injuries. A dull aching on the outside of the elbow may be present at the start of the condition. However, when the illness worsens, the inflammation in the area may make it painful to touch.

Even lighter objects, such as a pen or shaking hands, may become impossible to lift at some point. You could have discomfort in your elbow due to tendonitis, arthritis in the joint, or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in the wrist, in addition to tendonitis. The pain in your wrist could travel up your arm and into your neck.

Why PRP Injection for Tennis Elbow Works?

Tennis elbow PRP has been shown to be more helpful in relieving pain and discomfort in patients. This is due to the fact that PRP serum has a high quantity of growth factors, mesenchymal stem cells, hormones, chemokines, platelets, and other healing components. Compounds in various growth factors induce the formation of new collagen, which is the foundation of tissues.

PRP also creates new blood vessels in injured tendons, allowing them to absorb a fresh supply of nutrients to help them heal. PRP acts to heal the tissues for long-term comfort, whereas most treatment techniques just ease the pain. If you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, PRP for wrist pain can help you get rid of the inflammation and regain mobility.

PRP is a Safe and Effective Treatment Option for Tennis Elbow

Because PRP serum is made from the blood of specific patients, negative effects are extremely rare. Even if there's a chance the therapy won't work, you won't experience any negative side effects. Follow your practitioner's aftercare instructions and dos and don'ts to ensure good outcomes. Visit www.regencare.in for more.

Advantages of PRP Therapy for Osteoarthritis

 PRP therapy uses platelet-rich plasma to enhance soft tissue regeneration in a less invasive procedure. It's a sort of regenerative medicine that promotes injury repair and pain relief.

PRP for Osteoarthritis

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is autologous blood that contains many growth factors and has a higher concentration of platelets than normal. Platelet-rich plasma is created by drawing blood from the patient directly.

The platelets are separated from the blood and the PRP concentrated content is created using a special centrifuge. The PRP substance is infused into the damaged areas when the proper concentration is obtained.

Is PRP Therapy Safe?

PRP therapy is not only safe, but also successful and dependable in the treatment of pain. It also ensures that edeema and discomfort are reduced.

A significant amount of platelets enriched in growth factors is used in advanced PRP treatment. PRP therapy aids in the relief of pain and the restoration of damaged tissue. It can also aid in the speedy recovery of injuries.

A substantial loss of hyaluronic acid is one of the most typical causes of  osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid keeps joints lubricated and cushioned so they can move freely.

PRP therapy can be quite beneficial for osteoarthritis patients experiencing significant knee pain. Due to the presence of synovial fibroblast and hepatocyte growth factors in platelet material, PRP treatment helps restore hyaluronic acid concentration in the knees. Thus, joint damage can be reversed and disease development can be stopped.

Platelets from a patient's blood are used as PRP injectables because PRP substances are created from the patient's own blood. The injections have no negative consequences for the patient in the great majority of situations.

Thankfully, today there are many options that a sportsperson has and PRP is considered to be one of the best.

PRP for Osteoarthritis

 Osteoarthritis, or OA, is a chronic joint problem that occurs due to the breakage of cartilage. Cartilage is a protective tissue that covers the tip of bones at joints. It helps in easy friction of the joints. Due to age or injury factors, cartilage may get damaged due to which joint bones rub harshly against each other causing pain or stiffness.


What is PRP treatment?

PRP stands for Platelets-Rich Plasma which is obtained from your own blood sample. The blood is kept in a centrifuge and then platelets concentration is carefully separated. Next, the doctor injects this concentration into the affected area after numbing the region like knee joints.

How effective it is for Osteoarthritis patients?

Osteoarthritis being a chronic issue can be solved with regular weight-loss exercises and few medications. However, PRP treatment has also proved to be an excellent treatment for some people.

  • It can fix the torn tissues that reduce pain.
  • Physical functions may also be improved via this treatment.

It is important to note here that PRP treatment for OA relief has not yet been fully approved by the experts. There may be different results on your knees. Experiments are still going on to confirm its benefits.

In some cases, there are certain possible aftereffects that may include the following:  

  • Pain at the joint (you must avoid NSAIDs medicines)
  • Headache or upset stomach
  • Nausea

Do’s and Dont's post-treatment

  • Listen to your doctor
  • Avoid walking until it’s an emergency
  • Put ice on the area every 1-2 hours
  • Rest, rest and rest


PRP treatment has proved to be a wonderful treatment for several patients and as it uses your own blood, it isn’t unsafe either. However, it is always advised to consult and stay in close contact with your doctor before deciding to perform this treatment.

Plantar Fasciitis

Pain in the heel or any part of the foot when you take the first few steps in the morning can be largely blamed on Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar Fasciitis is the most common reason that causes heel pain

The plantar fascia is a weblike thick ligament that connects the heel bone to the front of the foot. It supports the arch of the foot by absorbing the shock while walking. The stabbing pain that you feel in the heel or at the bottom of the foot is caused when there is inflammation in this thick band of tissues.


What symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis should I look out for?

Plantar fasciitis is the most commonly made orthopaedic complaint. It causes pain either in the heel or in the midfoot area. It can affect one foot or both and the pain caused can be dull or sharp.

The pain is triggered when you stand for long hours or when you stand up after sitting or lying down for some time. Some people feel it in the morning when they get out of bed and take their first few steps. Climbing stairs can also feel troublesome due to stiffness in the heel. The people affected by plantar fasciitis feel pain once they stop doing the activity and rarely while doing it. 

What are the main causes of Plantar Fasciitis?

Although a straight cause of plantar fasciitis is still unclear it is believed that due to excessive wear and tear of daily life, the plantar fascia ligament may develop small tears. When there is repeated stretching and tearing of these tissues, inflammation in the fascia is experienced.

Even though the runners’ complain about it the most, others can also experience it often. Though the reason is not yet ascertained, yet there are a few factors that need to be taken care of.

  • It is most common amongst the active men and women in the age group of 40-60 years.
  • Activities that put a lot of stress on the heels can lead to plantar fasciitis like- aerobics, ballet dancing, long-distance running or abnormal walking patterns. 
  • Being overweight or obese can increase the risk of plantar fasciitis.
  • Having foot problems like a flat foot or high arch can lay added stress on the ligament.

Ignoring plantar fasciitis can lead to excessive heel pain and hinder the normal activities of daily routine. Consult a medical expert today.

Disc Prolapse

Commonly called a slipped disc, disc prolapse, is accompanied by chronic pain in the lower back. There isn’t really a slip of the disc but the internal part of the disc bulges out through a weakness present in the outer part of the disc. This can lead to inflammation and also irritates the nerve/nerves. The expanse of the prolapse is different in different people, a bigger the prolapse is generally more painful.


What are the Causes of a Disc Prolapse?

With age when the outer ring of the disc becomes weak or damaged and allows the inner portion to slip out, a disc prolapse may occur.  Sometimes while you are twisting or turning to lift an object, the motion can also cause a slipped disc. People who are overweight are at increased risk too.

What Symptoms should I look out for?

As the outer ring of the backbone starts to become frail and tears down, people who suffer a disc prolapse, also suffer neck and back pain. One more usual symptom is numbness or/and pain in one side of the body which may extend to the arms or the legs. In some patients, the symptoms ease in some weeks, but for some, it continues.

How do I Deal with a Disc Prolapse?

If you have been experiencing continuing back pain, it is suggested that you consult a doctor. Delayed treatment of prolapsed disc can lead to more complications and harm. After consulting with your doctor, you can do some light exercises. Keep in mind, staying fit and mobile will make your muscles stronger and also offer support to your spine.
