Painful grip: Tennis elbow affects the outer prominent aspect of your blow. It is usually due to overuse (e.., too much tennis). Treatment is nonoperative and can consist of rest, ice, nsaids, bracing, nd local steroid injection. Rarely, surgery is indicted. Also referred to as lateral epicondylitis.

Outside elbow pain: Tennis elbow is a chronic tendinitis of the wrist extensor muscles. Thus, you will have pain when you extend your wrist or shake hands, or turn knobs. Treatment is usually non operative with pt, stretching etc. Avoid cortisone injections. The latest method to treat it is with topical Nitric Oxide patches.

Tennis elbow: Tennis elbow is the most common cause of lateral elbow pain. Patients have pain over the bony prominence on the outside of the elbow. Pain is usually worsened by grasping with the palm facing down. Sometimes it radiates down the back of the forearm.

Lateral elbow pain: Symptoms include lateral elbow pain, worse with lifting palm down. It is typically treated with rest, ice, stretching, bracing, and up to 2 cortisone injections. If symptoms persist despite active non-op treatment for 6 months, surgery may be considered.

Pain.: Pain on the outside of the elbow, directly on the bony prominence, called the epicondyle. Grabbing things with your hand will irritate it, as you cause a "pull" on the inflammed area. See an orthopedic physician for treatment.
