What is Tennis Elbow?

Your elbow is a hinge joint that flexes and extends your forearm. You have three elbow bones: your humerus (arm bone), radius (forearm bone) and ulna (small forearm bone). Your forearm muscle tendons insert on the inside (medial) and outside (lateral) part of your elbow.

Tennis elbow is a common injury in which overuse irritates and inflames your lateral elbow tendons. Common causes of tennis elbow include repetitive motions of the arm such as tennis, golf and using a hammer or other tool.

What are tennis elbow symptoms?

Your tennis elbow symptoms will not be associated with a specific injury or accident. The following are common symptoms to be aware of:

  • Decreased elbow and forearm strength
  • Pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow

It is important to schedule an appointment with the Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Specialists at Active Orthopedics and Sports Medicine at the first sign of symptoms.

WHAT ARE MY TREATMENT OPTIONS?

Nonsurgical treatment options treat the overwhelming majority of cases of tennis elbow. Any of the following may be Included in your customized treatment plan:

  • Immobilization
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs)
  • Physical therapy
  • Platelet-rich plasma injections

After your injury heals, you may wear a supportive brace to take pressure off your tendons and ensure your symptoms do not return.

We have helped thousands of patients with tennis elbow return to an active and healthy life using the latest advancements in non-surgical and surgical procedures.

This is the best Doctor I’ve ever been to for chronic disk problems in my back. He reads his own MRI’s and such, went to a top US Medical school and the surgical procedure I had with him couldn’t have gone better. The staff is efficient and very friendly.
