Cortisone injection ( 0.5 ml of betamethasone) into the area of maximal tenderness may be useful, but should be given no more than 3 injections per year and no more frequently than every 3 months. Medial epicondylitis affects the group of muscles that are responsible for bending the wrist, fingers, and thumb and that rotate the wrist and forearm. Operative Techniques in Orthopaedics, Vol 11, N° 1, pp 46-54. Range of motion in the beginning of the disease can be full, but later on there is a possibility of a decreased range of motion, An evaluation of the entire upper extremity kinetic chain can be needed. Motion analysis of the glenohumeral joint will show what abnormal movement of the humerus in relation to the glenoid during the cocking phase of throwing? The main goal of the conservative treatment is to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Medial epicondylar tendinopathy has a lower incidence than lateral epicondylopathy (tennis elbow), with the former containing only 9 to 20% of all epicondylopathy diagnoses. Nonsurgical treatment can be divided into three phases. Sobotta atlas of human anatomy. Nirschl Surgical Technique for Concomitant Lateral and Medial Elbow Tendinosis: A Retrospective Review of 53 Elbows With a Mean Follow-up of 11.7 Years.

Shoulder and Elbow Injuries in Athletes: Prevention, Treatment and Return to Sport. American family physician, vol. Rather, it is a problem within the cells of the tendon. While the examiner palpates the patient's medial epicondyle, resisted wrist flexion and pronation is done. Flexor-pronator tendon degeneration occurs with repetitive forced wrist extension and forearm supination during activities involving wrist flexion and forearm pronation. There is an evidence that supports the usage of Muscle Energy Techniques (METs) to improve ROM . The combined treatment of dry needling and ultrasound guided autologous blood injection is described as an effective way to treat patients with refractory lateral and medial epicondylopathy. FETOR decreases the average pain, pain at rest, and pain during hard work or heavy lifting. Surgical intervention for golfers elbow may be indicated for symptoms that persist longer than 1 year.

This can be another option when local steroid injection is contraindicated in the treatment of the patient [33].The pressure-focused pulses may cause tissue regeneration at the specific site. This pathology is also called golfer’s elbow which mostly develops as a result of high energy valgus forces in athletes. As the common nametennis elbowsuggests, many people seeking lateral epicondylitis treatment are tennis players, whose forehand and backhand strokes take a toll on the muscles of their outer forearms.

Pain can begin suddenly or can develop gradually over time. The hypothesis of the mechanism is that the transforming growth factor-β and basic fibroblast growth factor carried in the blood act as humoral mediators to induce the healing cascade. The diagnosis of medial epicondylopathy is based on local pain at the elbow, tenderness and pain with palpation distal and anterior of the medial epicondyle. Top Contributors - Sanne Delporte, Anouk Toye, Darrell Blommaert, Alynn De Maeyer and Shaimaa Eldib, Medial epicondylopathy or ‘golfer’s elbow’ is mostly a tendinous overload injury leading to tendinopathy.

Counterforce bracing is recommended for athletes with symptoms of medial epicondylopathy. These exercises first should be done with a flexed elbow to minimize the pain. Clin Sports Med. Over time, the forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from repeating the same motions again and again. [14], The pain is evoked by resisted flexion of the wrist and by pronation.

The indication for injection therapy for epicondylopathy is usually chronic pain and disability not relieved by more conservative means, or severe acute pain with functional impairment that calls for a more rapid intervention.These injections seem to have a short term effect (2-6 weeks) and effective in providing early symptom relief [20].The injection must be in the proper location for maximal benefit to the patient[30].
