Tennis Elbow

By 22 March 2012February 20th, 2024No Comments

Tennis elbow syndrome ( Lateral epicondylitis ) causes pain on the outer aspect of the elbow during activities that require a strong grip. The pain will only be present during activity in the early phase of the disease but may cause pain at rest or at night in more advanced disease. The initial treatment includes reducing activities that cause pain, splinting the wrist or using a specific brace around the upper forearm to rest the muscle insertion. One or two cortisone injections may cure the problem and if conservative treatment fails, surgery or platelet rich plasma injections could be considered.

Pain on the inner aspect of the elbow is called Golfer’s elbow ( Medial epicondylitis ) and this is treated in a similar manner.
