SPORTS INJURY & TREATMENT

ELBOW

The joint between the forearm and the upper arm is known as the elbow. Some of the common ailments of the elbow are:

  • TENNIS ELBOW:

    Also known as 'Lateral Epicondylitis', a condition caused by inflammation of the tendons outside of the elbow.

  • STIFF ELBOW:

    The elbow joint is a very important joint as it provides rotation from 0 to 145 degrees. Any level of stress or trauma on this can lead to stiffness and restriction of movements.

TREATMENT

To treat this, the patient's blood is taken and with the help of a special equipment, filtered to procure the plasma which is rich in healing cells called platelets. These plasma cells are then injected to the painful area. This is a day care procedure which does not require the patient to be admitted in the hospital in order to administer the injection.
