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.
