A study published in the Jul-Dec 2014 edition of the Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine followed 30 tennis elbow patients for 12 weeks. It concluded that a single shot of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) let to significant improvement.

CONCLUSION: Treatment of tennis elbow patients with single injection of BMA showed a significant improvement in short to medium term follow-up.
