Tennis elbow is a very common problem. If you have pain on the outer side of your elbow, especially when you are lifting something, it is quite likely that you have tennis elbow. I know, you don’t play tennis. Most people with tennis elbow do not play tennis. Tennis elbow will affect almost everyone at some point in their life. You didn’t do anything wrong. The tendons around the elbow are simply starting to wear out. Sometimes they fray, and sometimes they develop tears too. Luckily, tennis elbow if a self limiting process… that means that if you give it enough time, sometimes up to a year it is going to go away in nearly everyone. We used to give injections to everyone with tennis elbow. Now we know that injections might actually cause more damage. You will have no difficulty finding someone to inject you with cortisone, PRP, stem cells, etc. But the question is… should you?
