Tennis elbow presents as pain on the outer, or lateral side of elbow. The pain tends to center around a boney prominence we call the lateral epicondyle. The pain may spread down the arm a little into the muscles on the side of the forearm. Tennis elbow should not be associated with numbness or tingling. Patients with Tennis Elbow will complain about severe pain when lifting an object, especially with the palm facing downwards. Severely afflicted patients with tennis elbow can not even lift a cup of coffee without wincing in pain.
Treatments for Tennis Elbow
Luckily, for most patients their tennis elbow symptoms are mild and their course is self-limiting. That means that the pain will subside or go away on its own. Many patients tell me that a compression sleeve helps with the pain. Some report improvement with natural anti-inflammatory supplements. . For patients with more severe discomfort, many orthopedists will recommend physical therapy, but conventional therapy has led to disappointing results in treating tennis elbow. A few years ago, researchers realized that a unique form of stretching, called eccentric stretching led to a significant response in many patients being treated for Tennis Elbow. This led to the invention of the FlexBar. The majority of you will respond to using the flex bar, if it is used properly. There are many videos to show you how on YouTube. You can obtain a flex bar here. Even the NY Times wrote about the Flexbar in an article a few years back.
Cortisone Injections For Tennis Elbow
For a very long time, the initial treatment chosen for a patient with severe pain due to tennis elbow was a cortisone injection. Cortisone is a steroid and a strong anti-inflammatory. Initially most of these injected patients were very satisfied , but many patients note that when the injection wears off, they feel worse than they did prior to the injection. #instgram
