Tennis Elbow Treatment

February 25, 2014

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is caused by inflammation of the tendon origin on the outer aspect of the elbow. This condition may not be caused by playing tennis. Frequent repetitive movement and heavy lifting can also cause tennis elbow pain to occur. Treatment usually involves rest and physiotherapy. However, some patients may need further tennis elbow treatment like injection of PRP (platelet rich plasma) injection or surgical release.
