We had 3 patients with golfer’s elbow. This is a fairly common injury among golfers, also called medial epicondylitis. It can result from recreational (or labor) activities that cause overuse or damage to the joints, poor posture, soft tissue tension due to a joint or bone incorrect or abnormally positioned. It is an injury that heals fairly quickly with the standard Prolotherapy and / or cell.
In a study conducted by the renowned Dr. Ross Hauser and published in the magazine Practical Pain Management: Prolotherapy was used in patients with unresolved elbow pain (with an average of four years and one month duration) and proceeded to interview patients 31 months after its last session Prolotherapy to know about the status of their improvement and quality of life. They reported less pain, stiffness, depression and anxiety, less use of drugs and improving range of motion, sleep, and exercise capacity. This included patients that their (s) doctor (s) had informed them that “no other treatment options” for elbow pain. More than 73% of patients reported improvement of their pain and stiffness in the elbow (since you received your last treatment prolotherapy) had continued to this day to be interviewed.
