PRP for elbow injuries

PRP has been shown to be an effective treatment in recalcitrant lateral epicondylitis[1] and refractory distal biceps tendinitis[2]. An American study of 44 baseball players with a strain of the ulna collateral ligament of the elbow treated with PRP found 70% had a good or excellent outcome, with 4 of 6 professional athletes returning to professional sport without other treatment[3].
