Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a common injury that originally got its name because it is a frequent injury that affects many tennis players. However, it also occurs in people who do not play tennis at all.  The lateral epicondyle is the outside bony portion of the elbow where large tendons attach to the elbow from the muscles of the forearm. These tendons can be injured, especially with repetitive motions of the forearm, such as hitting a backhand shot while playing tennis, lifting weights, or even using hand-held tools for long periods of time.

Symptoms Of Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow results with inflammation of the tendons causing pain on the outside of the elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist.

The most common symptoms of tennis elbow are:

  • Pain over the outside of the elbow
  • Pain when lifting objects
  • Pain radiating down the forearm
  • Warmth and swelling of the elbow

Treatments Of Tennis Elbow

The treatment for tennis elbow usually includes ice packs, resting the elbow, and anti-inflammatory medications. Using an elbow brace to immobilize it can also help. If the pain is severe and persistent, local cortisone injections may be given. In severe cases, an orthopedic surgical repair may be performed.

Depending on the severity of your injury, you might be a candidate for a new breakthrough treatment called Platelet Rich Plasma, which may be an alternative treatment to surgery. The diagnosis and treatment course is determined upon the results of an MRI.
