Answer

A very small study in 2013 also demonstrated effectiveness of autologous blood injections for the treatment of chronic lateral epicondylitis. However, the patients were placed in a long arm cast for three weeks after the injection. Long arm cast immobilization is not the standard of care after proinflammatory injections. [29]
