Platelet-rich plasma therapy may relieve pain associated with chronic tennis elbow up to six months following the treatment, according to a study of 230 patients reported at an orthopedic surgeons' meeting. Twelve weeks after treatment, patients who received the treatment reported 55% improvement in pain scores, compared with about 47% for patients who received standard treatment. At six months, platelet treatment was associated with 72% improvement in pain scores, compared with about 56% in the comparison group.
