Ultrasound-Guided Diagnostic Scan and Cortisone/PRP Injections for Tennis Elbow Pain Relief

Tennis elbow, clinically known as lateral epicondylitis, is a condition that causes pain around the outside of the elbow. Tennis elbow occurs after overuse or repetitive movement of the forearm muscles, near the elbow joint. Pain is often noticed on the outside of the elbow and can travel down your forearm when lifting or bending your arm, gripping small objects or using a twisting motion such as opening a jar.

The pain can vary from mild to severe, often worse when moving your arm, particularly twisting movements. Repetitive wrist movements, such as extending your wrist and gripping, may also increase the pain. You could also find it tricky to fully extend your arm.

This outpatient procedure is carried out at your convenient time at one of our clinics.  You do not require a GP referral for this. 

Ram Rachaputi is an experienced clinician and has so far carried out several thousand pain relief ultrasound-guided injections successfully.  We have joint care clinics across the UK, where this service is offered by highly experienced clinicians.

Tennis Elbow Treatment FAQS

What causes Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow is the result of overworked forearm muscles. It can cause small tears and inflammation close to the bony bump (lateral epicondyle) on the outside of the elbow.
The complete causes of tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis as it is known in the medical community, are not yet understood. However, the most common explanation is that the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) is unable to properly repair itself, leading to an increase in tendon damage or growth of connective tissue in the tendons. In both instances, this can lead to functional issues in the arm and elbow when applying force through the tendon, resulting in pain when the arm, wrist, and elbow are moved.

Is pain on the side of the elbow always caused by tennis elbow?

Tennis elbow is most commonly diagnosed in patients who seek medical attention for the following symptoms:

  • Elbow pain on the outside of the elbow
  • When the bone on the side of the elbow is pressed, the pain becomes more severe.
  • When the fingers or wrists are flexed, it causes pain.

In most cases, the condition has no effect on the elbow’s range of motion. These symptoms can be caused by a variety of conditions, such as lateral epicondylitis, cartilage damage, synovial plica, calcific tendinitis, and elbow instability. A thorough review of the patient’s medical history and a detailed health examination performed by a highly experienced physician are required for accurate diagnosis. Important historical factors include the patient’s age and activity level.

What is an Ultrasound Guided PRP Injection for Tennis Elbow?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are rich in growth factors (help in repairing the cell and its growth) and prepared from the patient’s own blood. Separated growth factors from the patient’s blood are injected back into the affected area of the same patient. PRP’s ability to heal and even regenerate injured or ageing tendons, ligaments and joints, provides some patients with an alternative to surgery. PRP therapy may reduce the required healing time for the injuries ( especially for sports injuries and early Arthritis ); otherwise, athletes/ sports professionals may require longer periods of rest from their sports-related activities. To read more please visit our Ultrasound Guided PRP page.

Always, consider having the PRP injections under ultrasound guidance for accuracy. For PRP Injections for Tennis Elbow Treatment in Coventry call us on 0333 444 2013

What should I expect after my Tennis Elbow Treatment?

After the injection, you may feel pain-free for a couple of hours due to Local anaesthesia. However, pain returns after 2 hours, and you may even feel more pain for a couple of days due to bruising pain. Usually, you should start feeling better from the third day onwards. Pain relief from the steroid injection may take 1 to 2 weeks. If you have Tennis Elbow Pain please call us on 0333 444 2013

Can I drive after my Tennis Elbow Treatment?
