Epicondylar Injections Kennesaw, GA

Epicondylar Injections

The lateral epicondyle is an area on the outside of the elbow. It is a bony protrusion that is surrounded by muscles and tendons that move the elbow. When those tendons are damaged due to injury or repetitive use, inflammation can cause pain around the lateral epicondyle. This is known as lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow. It is a condition that can make it very painful to use the affected arm and elbow. Epicondylar injections are one option for treatment for tennis elbow that is available at Medici Medical Arts.

Tennis elbow is common among people who repeatedly bend and strain the elbow during sports or work activities. In most cases, rest and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications can relieve the pain on the outer elbow. When lateral epicondylitis does not respond to conservative treatment and the pain continues, more aggressive treatments may be needed to offer relief. Our physicians look at all the options for treating tennis elbow, including injection therapy to relieve inflammation.

Injections for Tennis Elbow

Epicondylar injections for tennis elbow contain a local anesthetic and a steroid to help relieve the pain and inflammation. Imaging is used to guide the injection to the lateral epicondyle region, delivering the medication to the correct spot. The anesthetic can offer immediate relief of pain in the outer elbow while the steroid will work to reduce inflammation over the next few days. The procedure usually takes less than half an hour and can be beneficial for reducing pain caused by lateral epicondylitis.

If you have tennis elbow or pain surrounding the outer elbow that is not responding to conservative treatment, come see us at Medici Medical Arts. We can explore the best treatment options to give you relief, including epicondylar injections. Contact us today at our clinics in the greater Atlanta area to schedule an appointment to meet with one of our pain physicians to begin treatment.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
