Treatment

Pain and inflammation caused in conditions of tennis and golfer’s elbow can be reduced by
  1. Drugs like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  2. Application of ice-packs
  3. Cortisone type medication
  4. Avoid activities that cause pain in the affected area
  5. Electro-therapy, ultrasound & X-ray exposure are additional supportive measures
After pain and inflammation has been reduced the condition can be treated with physical-therapy for strengthening the associated tendons and muscles. To prevent recurrence of the condition, orthopaedic solution like elbow supports or braces is effective. Immobilisation or operation is resorted to under exceptional cases.

  1. Epicomed
