I’m sure those of you with tendon problems have probably tried everything already but I still thought I’d share what’s been working for me. I started developing bad tendon pain in my forearm tendons at my elbows from what seemed to be a combination of lifting heavy weights and using a regular mouse. Switching to a vertical mouse helped a lot and started doing high rep (20-25 reps) on Lat Pulls going nice and slow to get the blood flowing through that area. Though it’s taken awhile I am now back up to doing bodyweight Chin Ups without any pain during or post exercise. Note that I’m not fully healed though since I can push on the tendons and feel discomfort, but so far the high rep stuff seems to be working.

Blood flow does appear to be key in the healing process.

The big risk with just about any treatment for pain (whether it's back pain, migraines, plantar fasciitis, and everything in between) is that most of them have placebo effects upwards of 40%. For example, the following randomized trial:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21602565 (links to abstract)
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20068208

found that PRP made no difference compared with placebo either during the trial or at one-year follow-up, and 60% of participants in both groups were happy with their results.

I would guess that $1500 isn't much less than a consult with a dedicated sports medicine specialist, even in the U.S. It might be a wiser investment

Well I finally got around to submitting to this torture. It was either give this a try or go under the knife. My tendons were so damaged, therapy would not help. The proceedure doesn't take long, but boy it didn't feel good. The DR used two ring finger sized syringes to numb the areas around the tendons (not the affected injection zone). This in itself was pretty painful. Then he drove the PRP injection into the tendons at numerous places. Each time he would inject the stuff, he would move the needle back and forth (while in the tendon) to open up the tendon. I felt all of it. I have to stay in a sling for five days, then I can not lift or strain for five weeks. I'm supposed to stretch the tendons and apply light resistance four time a day. After five weeks I can start light resistance work outs. Before I committed, I asked the DR what to do if this didn't work. He simply replied that I had a much better chance of a complete recovery doing this than I would with surgery. Considering he also performs surgery, I thought that was pretty honest input. I also asked about all the other things that some doctors are using PRT injections for, and he didn't think very highly of them, and that in his experience, the proceedure works for tendons, but was not as confident for other injured body parts. Now I need to figure out what the heck to keep myself busy with for the next few weeks. Damn I'm bored... Stoned and sleepy too...Codeine every four hours till the pain subsides. Tried to go without it today and found out that wasn't such a good idea.

Good luck and I hope it works for you, if it does I might have to give it a try myself although I am not sure how I could still my job if the recovery is that long.
