Arm, Elbow & Wrist Pain
Patients suffering tennis or golfers elbow can be treated with RIT Prolotherapy. Recent scientific studies prove that these conditions are degenerative in nature and represent tendinosis. Chronic tendinosis at the elbow that did not respond to steroid injection or physical therapy should be treated with RIT Prolotherapy.
Other areas successfully treated at the elbows are triceps tendinosis and strains of annular, radial and ulnar collateral ligaments. Three to four sessions of RIT Prolotherapy are usually required. In persistent cases, Platelet Rich Plasma may be used.
The wrist and hand are very complex structures with many bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons. Problems may arise from any of these areas and often from several of them. Ligament or tendon damage diagnosed through MRI does not always correlate with the patient’s problem. Often several RIT Prolotherapy injections to most tender areas resolve the problems.
