Tennis Elbow While golfer’s elbow affects the inside of the elbow, tennis elbow affects the outside. Typical symptoms of tennis elbow are pain on the prominent outside bone of the elbow, difficulty extending the wrist, pain when shaking hands with someone, and stiffness in the elbow in the mornings upon rising. This condition really isn’t inflammation related, it is more of a degenerative problem and is common in middle age. Most people with tennis elbow have never played tennis before. Repeated actions using the arm are to blame for this including overextending the elbow joint. Like golfer’s elbow, this too is a manageable condition with treatments such as acupuncture, massage, cold laser therapy, the Energy Fitness System, PRP injections, Neural Prolotherapy, and Prolozone injections.
