One of the most common repetitive stress injuries, commonly known as tennis elbow, lateral epicondylitis is certainly not limited to athletes. In reality, the vast majority of those who seek treatment for tennis elbow are not athletes. Repetitive activities such as typing and the use of hand tools often lead to this condition, causing tenderness of the joint, and pain in movement. Physicians most often apply conservative care techniques to treat the injury. In more advanced cases, surgeons utilize minimally invasive arthoscopic techniques to alleviate pain and restore function, allowing a full and rapid recovery.
