Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

    Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

    This is the most common tendonitis of the elbow. This is seen in athletes who do repetitive activities, such as racquet sports. Symptoms are pain and tenderness at the outside of the elbow. This pain may radiate through the lateral or outside aspect of the forearm. Treatment consists of relative rest, bracing, anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and occasionally a cortisone injection. Refractory cases may require surgical intervention.
