Tennis Elbow Treatment

If you’re experiencing chronic pain at the lateral epicondyle of the elbow, commonly known as tennis elbow, you’re not alone. This condition is relatively common, affecting not only athletes but also manual laborers and individuals engaged in various occupational and recreational activities.

At Holistiq Spine & Orthopaedic, we specialize in providing personalized care for a wide range of chronic pain conditions, including elbow tendinopathy. Whether you’re an athlete, a manual laborer, or someone dealing with elbow pain due to other activities, we’re here to help you find relief and get back to doing what you love.

Understanding Tennis Elbow

Chronic pain at the lateral or medial epicondyle of the elbow is often associated with tendinopathy, previously known as epicondylitis. Let’s break down the terminology:

  • Lateral Elbow Tendinopathy (LET): Commonly referred to as tennis elbow, LET involves pain at the tendon insertion or myotendinous junction of the wrist extensors.
  • Medial Elbow Tendinopathy (MET): Known as golfer’s elbow, MET manifests as pain at the tendon insertion or myotendinous junction of the wrist flexors.

While tennis and golf are common culprits, these conditions can result from various activities involving repetitive wrist movements or forceful gripping.

Causes and Risk Factors

Numerous factors contribute to the development of elbow tendinopathy:

  • Repetitive Movement: Engaging in repetitive activities for extended periods, especially those involving forceful or rapid wrist movements, can increase the risk.
  • Occupational Factors: Certain occupations that require repetitive movements or handling of heavy loads may predispose individuals to elbow tendinopathy.
  • Age and Lifestyle: Risk increases with age, and factors such as smoking, obesity, and prolonged exposure to repetitive tasks can exacerbate the condition.

Diagnosis and Treatment Options

Our clinic offers comprehensive evaluations to diagnose elbow tendinopathy accurately. We utilize advanced imaging techniques and clinical assessments to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to your needs. Treatment options may include:

  • Physical Therapy: Targeted exercises and stretches can help strengthen the muscles and improve flexibility, reducing pain and enhancing function.
  • Medication Management: We offer pharmacological interventions to alleviate pain and inflammation, tailored to your specific condition and medical history.
  • Interventional Procedures: In some cases, minimally invasive procedures such as corticosteroid injections or platelet-rich plasma therapy may be recommended to promote healing and alleviate symptoms.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: We provide guidance on anti-inflammatory nutrition, ergonomic adjustments, activity modifications, and techniques to prevent further injury and promote long-term recovery.
