This condition is marked by the presence of pain on the outside
of the elbow when gripping or lifting any item, such as a carton
of milk, or even shaking hands.
Doctor's Treatment Plan
When the injury is acute (it just happened), it is easier to treat. Treatment consists of reducing swelling through electrical stimulation, then fitting the patient with a sports brace, and prescribing a regimen of exercise and muscular re-education.
In the case of an ongoing chronic aggravation (more than 2 months), the treatment is more difficult, more extensive, and if left untreated, may result in surgery.
