Depends on what: Medicines they are giving you. Tennis elbow is a pretty easy diagnosis as long as the doc as musculoskeletal experience. The next step after anti-inflammatory meds could be an injection, of either anti-inflammatory med like steroids, or prolo-therapy, which some believe can strengthen the damaged and chronic inflamed tendons. Try bracing as well, as this can help, as well as modifying behaviors.

Tenex Health TX works by removing the damaged tissue responsible for tendon pain. First, a doctor trained in the procedure locates the damaged tissue with conventional ultra- sound imaging. Then, the doctor uses the TX MicroTip to break up and remove the damaged tissue with ultrasonic energy. Removing the tissue eliminates pain while allowing the tendon to heal properly.

Another newer treatment we are starting to use in our Pain & Spine center is made by TENEX Tendon pain is caused by damage to the tendon by trauma from a hit, twist, or pull on the joint, or by repetitive motion from over- use. When trauma occurs, the tendon tissue breaks down. This damaged tissue causes in- tense pain, which dramatically limits one’s ability to function every day.
