Tennis elbow diagnosis and treatment
4 months ago
Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a common overuse injury causing pain and tenderness on the outer side of the elbow. The condition occurs due to repetitive activities that overload the extensor carpi radialis brevis muscle. Tennis players, heavy lifters, and workers who use heavy tools are at risk. The diagnosis is based on symptoms and physical examination. Treatment options include activity modification, medication, physical therapy, injections, bracing, and surgery. The success rate for non-operative treatment is 95%, with improvement taking up to 6-12 months.
