Tennis Elbow

You do not need to play tennis to experience the pain of tennis elbow. Although common with tennis players, tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a common workplace or sports injury. It occurs when too much or repeated stress is placed on the tendons and muscles in the forearm that control the wrist. Bowlers, baseball players, mechanics, carpenters and many others that grip items frequently can experience tennis elbow. Our team at Medici Medical Arts offers effective, non-invasive treatment options for those suffering from tennis elbow.

Tennis and golfer’s elbow both are elbow injuries to the tendons that connect to the elbow but affect different areas and movements. Golfer’s elbow is linked to moving the wrist forward toward the palm. With tennis elbow, the strain is when gripping and moving the wrist backward, as when backhanding in a tennis game. Tennis elbow can be caused by an intense injury to these tendons, but it is more likely to occur when repeating the same movement over and over. The symptoms tend to increase over time, which include:

  • Pain on the outside of the elbow
  • Pain increases when gripping or squeezing with the hand
  • Severe pain when holding or lifting a gripped item

Repetitive use of the wrist when gripping is the most common cause. Pain can slowly become worse. For some, the pain can become too great to perform simple gripping tasks, requiring treatment.

Treatment for Lateral Epicondylitis

If you have lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, symptoms, the first steps for relief should be resting your elbow and wrist. Applying ice and using OTC anti-inflammatory medications can offer relief. Wearing a wrist or elbow brace reduces stress on the tendons. When home care is not effective, medical treatment may be needed to restore function and relieve pain.

We use comprehensive treatment plans for patients suffering from painful conditions like tennis elbow. Some treatments that may help recovery from a tennis elbow injury include steroid injections, physical therapy and customized devices for support.

If elbow pain is stopping you from work or play, come see us at Medici Medical Arts. Contact us to schedule your appointment. We have clinics in the greater Atlanta area to diagnose and treat your elbow condition.

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.
