Nothing could be more annoying than a constant aching pain of elbow. It may get aggravated while working on your computer keyboard, involving in to sports activities, exercising or lifting your shopping bags or even kids. Lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow, as is more commonly known, due to its occurrence among tennis players. But the association with the game is not always true. It may happen in any other circumstances where it involves trauma to the same muscle group. It is an inflammation of the common origin of the muscles of forearm on the outer aspect of the elbow leading to pain and tenderness.

Why it happens?

It generally happens due to repetitive use and overuse of the forearm muscles. It usually occurs in people playing racquet sports, golfers, cooks, plumbers, teachers, artist, weight lifters and even IT

professionals putting long hours on key boards. It is commonly seen in young and middle age group people.

How do the symptoms manifest?

Mostly people experience mild to moderate pain and tenderness on the outer aspect of the elbow. The pain might appear to radiate up and down the arm and forearm with a loss of power to grip.

How a diagnosis is made?

A carefully taken clinical history, physical examination and specific battery of tests help to diagnose the problem. A real time dynamic ultrasound guided musculoskeletal examination further helps in showing inflammatory changes, tears or changes in muscle architecture. These modalities substantiate complete evaluation and to reach on a precision diagnosis. Sometimes elbow pain can be coming from neck nerve impingement so getting a MRI of neck along with elbow assessment is a good procedure to follow.

How the tennis elbow pain is treated?

There are many ways a tennis elbow is treated but the conservative management is always tried initially and it involves

  • Rest
  • Support and slings
  • Simple pain medications
  • Local steroid shots
  • Cryotherapy for tennis elbow which has some evidence and applies sub-zero temperature to the inflamed tendons and ligaments of the elbow to help decrease the inflammation
  • Surgery for tennis elbow is debatable and is usually offered in very refractive cases.
  • Regenerative treatment

We at Axis Clinics specialise in treating the pain naturally through regenerative medicine. We do not recommend any steroid injection around the injury as the benefits are short lived and causes more long term damage to the soft tissues. An image guided PRP treatment/ your own mesenchymal cells depending on the severity and damage, heals the area in a natural way. In regenerative treatment your own growth cells and healing hormones are separated from the blood and are injected with due precision under image guidance on the damaged tendons. This helps in healing and decreasing inflammation over time without having undergone any surgery.
