Tennis Elbow Treatment in Phoenix

Tennis elbow can be a very painful condition, making even small movements like a handshake or turning a doorknob extremely uncomfortable. Fortunately, there are treatment options, both surgical and non-surgical.

What is tennis elbow?

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) occurs when the tendons that are connected to the bone on the outside of the elbow become inflamed, and when the extensor muscle that is responsible for straightening the wrist is overused. If you’re in Phoenix, Buckeye, Surprise, or the nearby areas and you think you may have tennis elbow, our specialists at Regency can diagnose and treat you.

Symptoms of tennis elbow

  • Pain or a burning sensation outside the elbow
  • Weakened grip
  • Tenderness at the elbow when touched
  • Pain that begins at the elbow and reaches the arm or hand

Who is at risk of getting tennis elbow?

Despite its name, tennis elbow can affect anyone — even those who have never played tennis before. Because the condition is caused by repetitive movements such as typing, painting, knitting, or sports, any type of person may develop it (although it most commonly affects those who are in their 30s to 50s). Tennis elbow may also be caused by trauma, although this is fairly rare.

How is tennis elbow treated?

Treatments for tennis elbow usually begin with non-surgical options. This may include a change in your activity, resting the arm, a brace worn on the arm, at-home exercises or physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and anti-inflammatory steroid injections. If none of these treatments help your tennis elbow improve and your symptoms become more painful and long-lasting (at least 6 to 12 months), surgery is usually recommended.

Finding an experienced specialist

If you’re experiencing pain, discomfort, or limited use of your elbow and/or arm, it is important that you consult an experienced hand and upper extremity surgeon. While surgery isn’t always necessary, a hand and upper extremity surgeon will be able to both accurately diagnose and treat you with the best options. Your diagnosis and treatment should only be performed by a qualified specialist who has been trained to understand the complexities of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, bones, nerves, skin, joints, and blood vessels of the arm. At Regency Specialties, we are very proud to have the best tennis elbow specialists in Phoenix, Buckeye, Surprise, and the surrounding areas.
