I've had climber's elbow and tennis elbow for 10 years now. Is it still just tennis elbow or is it tendonosis?

Many doctors jump straight to injections and surgery prior to emphasizing stretching and therapy. I would definitely do these if they haven't been done. Unfortunately, there is a subset of patients who just don't respond to surgery the way that we would hope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
