Patient Comments (1)
Garden Grove, CA |
I came to Dr. Ekstrand because I had chronic elbow pain being treated with cortisone injections always to improve for a period of time before it worsened again. Dr. Ekstrand determined a partial tear of the lateral extensor tendon also called tennis elbow. After a MRI confirmed her diagnosis, she suggested a platelet rich plasma injection, also called PRPR. After 6 weeks of minimal activity followed by strengthening my pain disappeared and furthermore on repeat ultrasound my elbow was healed.
