Comprehensive Tennis Elbow Assessment
Tennis elbow may begin slowly, presenting as a pain on the outside of the elbow. With time, tennis elbow typically progresses to an intense burning sensation. Pain in the forearm occurs when performing actions like twisting the wrist or gripping an object like a tennis racket. These symptoms indicate that the tendons attaching the muscles to the bone on the outside of the elbow are swollen or torn.
Either Dr. Nic Gay or Dr. Masi Reynolds will carry out a comprehensive examination at their Silicon Valley Orthopaedics practice. Our first priority is assessing the severity of the condition and overall health of the elbow joint. All treatment plans for tennis elbow at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics are tailored to the patient’s specific needs and lifestyle.
