That pain in your elbow could be more than just a nuisance. You may have an inflammation of certain tendons about the elbow commonly referred to as tennis elbow. At OCO, we know the pain this can cause and we’ll work to provide a comprehensive treatment plan to get your back in the action.
While golfer’s elbow is known as pain on the inside of the elbow, tennis elbow is characterized by pain that occurs on the outside of the elbow. As a form of tendonitis, tennis elbow can be the result of a single traumatic event or result from repetitive smaller “injuries.” It was initially described in tennis players who suffer debilitating pain to the outside of the elbow.
Treatment options for tennis elbow may include a home excercise program, physical therapy, and the use of anti-inflammatory medications. The need for surgery is infrequent, but may be necessary if other measures fail to relieve pain.
