Tennis Elbow Injection
Lateral epicondylitis, or ‘tennis elbow’, is a common condition that usually affects patients between 35 and 55 years of age. It is generally self-limiting, but in some patients it may continue to cause persistent symptoms, which can be refractory to treatment.
In the United Kingdom it affects between 1% and 3% of the population, mainly those aged from 35 to 55 years, with an equal gender distribution. It is generally self limiting, and most cases require no more than treatment with simple analgesia.
At Pain Spa Dr Krishna is very experienced in interventional treatments. Dr Krishna always performs injections under ultrasound guidance or fluoroscopy for greater accuracy and improved safety. Ultrasound gives the added advantage of targeting the surrounding tendons and muscles, which can be contributory to pain.
