Market research / data-gathering firms giddily announce that Billions of dollars are being spent on elbow injuries, (Tennis Elbow / ‘Lateral Epicondylitis’ in particular) globally, every single year! And it’s on the rise in both prevalence (more injuries) and treatment costs – projected to reach 10 BILLION dollars annually by 2022! (How much of that is spent on “symptom chasing” as opposed to truly treating the underlying injury?)
Could Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy be an effective, new Tennis Elbow treatment - A breakthrough, even? - Or is it actually an expensive, unproven fad, driven by rock star-athlete publicity and questionable medical studies?
