A recent study found that patients suffering from tennis elbow experienced approximately the same levels of non-relief after 12 weeks when injected with steroids, platelets and saline solution.

What does that mean exactly? Nothing really worked to decrease the pain.

Some doctors are saying the timeframe of the study (12 weeks) was too short to determine success/failure. Then again, these same doctors are saying that the best treatment for tennis elbow is really “watchful waiting” for up to a year.

Talk about your medical advancements. I mean, why aren’t they even mentioning leeches?
