Are there any risks[ie tendon rupture] for having steriod injection for conditions like tennis elbow? thanks

Some

Rupture
The common extensor tendon of the elbow rarely ruptures; however, too many cortisone injections (> 2) can weaken the tendon and make it more prone to microtears. Consider platelet-rich plasma or similar instead.

What is actually happening if you have tennis elbow?

Inflammed tendon..

Open-uri20120929-18442-kbr9b5
It is called tennis elbow because many tennis players suffer this condition due to overusing it swinging the racquet--the backhand stroke. Trauma to the area either acutely or chronically can cause this infliction which can be quite painful. Good range of motion, stretching, use of elbow-strap, avoid the "traumatic activities", motrin/aleve may help. If not better, consult doc. Good luck

Dr. Ty H. Endean answered:

How should I treat tennis elbow?

Stretch

Tennis_elbow
Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is inflammation of the extensor tendons at their attachment site on the humerus. Aggressively stretching with your wrist in flexion while your elbow is held in absolute extension will help facilitate stretching them out. NSAID's, massage therapy, braces and even sometimes injections with either cortisone or PRP are often used.

Dr. Clarke Holmes answered:

Has anyone actually been cured from tennis elbow?

Absolutely

Elbow
The large majority of patients with tennis elbow fully recover. For some patients, it may take 1-2 years, as tendons heal very slowly & repetitive stress on the tendon does not allow for a rapid recovery. Wrist splint, eccentric strengthening of the forearm extensors & relative rest help many patients. Cortisone or PRP injections are beneficial for many. The FAST procedure is another great option

Elbow Band

Elbow_joint
One may need to rest the elbow for a period of time. Physical therapy may be helpful. There are also elbow straps that support the radial tendons that are affected by tennis elbow that are inexpensive and effective. In severe cases a local injection of steroids may be useful.

how do you diagnose tennis elbow?

First turn palms up

Elbow_joint
With palms turned upward, you'll define the outer part of forearm as the lateral part. the lateral epicondyle is the bony part where the tendons and muscles attach and go distally (toward hand). tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is generally caused by repetitive motions over-using these muscles; occurs in tennis, golf, excess computing...but doing it wrong. Rx, then learn proper moves.
