About Tennis Elbow
Tennis Elbow, also called lateral epicondylitis, is caused by injury to the outer tendons of the elbow. The repetitive motion of bending the wrist or gripping and turning motions, common in tennis players, can result in injuries to the outer elbow tendons. Other activities where you are repeatedly extending the wrist backwards can cause injury to the outer tendons of the elbow.
"Dr. Maniam is great and you took care of my knee. My knee feeks great and i can walk again. The visit was beautiful and they treat me with respect."- K.D. / Google / May 18, 2021
"On first arrival Dr. Kohler and his staff at Ospina Medicine were warm and welcoming. He was precise in his knowledge and explained all parts of both my pain management due to previous injury, and preventative measures for future treatment. Their New York City based state of the art technology and contemporary office made me feel at ease immediately. As someone with continual back pain, and as someone who wants to avoid opioid treatment, the very nature of Ospina Medical using non-opioid approaches to pain management for me was a big bonus. The results have been brilliant, and I am so pleased to have Dr. Kohler to help me through my pain management process."- M.M. / Google / May 17, 2021
"The nicest people, the best care. I feel so much better already. Would recommend to any and all friends, dancers, athletes, who are having pain."- C.J. / Google / May 14, 2021
"Dr Maniam and his staff are excellent. Renya at the front desk is always friendly and makes me feel comfortable. There’s a real sense that they care about their patients. I’ve had numerous spinal epidural‘s and radio frequency ablations, they’ve been painless and have gotten excellent results. This is the best pain management group that I’ve been to and I’ve been to more than a few... I highly recommend Ospina!"- M.G. / Google / May 14, 2021
"I've had 3 cortisone injections with Ospina and I'm amazed by the care they take when applying the injections. I can't believe how well it works and what good care they take of me. (I had received an injection somewhere else and it was more painful, bruised badly, and didn't last near as long.) I will ONLY go to Ospina now. The staff and doctors are truly WONDERFUL. Don't hesitate!"- P.G. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
Symptoms of Tennis Elbow
The most common symptom of tennis elbow is pain on the outside of your elbow. Inflammation of the tendon can cause pain, as well as weakness in the forearm or wrist. In most cases, the symptoms worsen over time, and symptoms can begin suddenly.
Treatment for Tennis Elbow
Rest, ice, support devices and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be used for minor tennis elbow pain or when symptoms first occur. For severe tennis elbow pain or wrist weakness that does not respond to conservative treatment, our team at Ospina Medical can design a treatment plan for quicker recovery and pain relief. Steroid injections can reduce inflammation for pain relief and improved function. Regenexx platelet rich plasma (PRP), platelet lysate, or bone marrow concentrate with stem cells may be recommended to reduce pain and improve healing.
