Steroid injections can sometimes help relieve pain with tennis elbow that is unresponsive to conservative treatment. The relief often lasts a limited time, however, and then the pain recurs, sometimes worse. Further, with steroids there is always the potential of further weakening and breaking down the precious tendon fibers making the problem more chronic. This study shows it is better to eliminate pain by encouraging healing and supporting the strength of the tendon attachment naturally with your own blood (PRP), rather than inhibiting the pain and inflammation with a steroid.
