This problem actuall: -y a self limiting disease. If nothing is done & U modify Ur activities that cause the pain. Take a long time & i only rec PT & try a brace. Once U violate the extensor origin, U can have permanent problems. I found it hard 2 convince patients 2 follow my rec, but it works. I have injected some & they R a patient of Ur's 4 a long, ,longtime. Same with surgery. Injections R progressing, tho.
