If you have had ongoing pain in your hand, wrist, or elbow, you know how painful it can be. Most likely, it is probably already affecting your life, and there are things you have stopped doing. If you have tried other things to reduce the pain, and they did not work, it is time to contact an interventional pain management center for minimally invasive techniques that work.
Lateral Epicondyle Injection (for Tennis Elbow). The elbow is where the three bones of your upper and lower arm meet. At the end of the upper arm bone, the humerus, there are two bumps called epicondyle. These two bumps are places where the connective tissue makes contact. The outside bump is called the lateral epicondyle.
After a thorough exam, the doctor may give you a lateral epicondyle injection. This is a cortisone injection that is injected into the cartilage between the bones. Cortisone is a powerful anti-inflammation medication and will reduce swelling. It also contains some anesthetic to provide instant pain relief.
