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.
Medial Epicondyle Injection (for Golfer’s Elbow). The medial epicondyle is the bone on the inside of your elbow on your upper arm. Golfers will often feel pain in this part of the elbow.
After a careful diagnosis, and only after other common pain solutions have been tried by the patient, the doctor may give you a medial epicondyle injection. This injection will be placed into the point of greatest tenderness. It consists of an anesthetic for instant pain relief, and cortisone to reduce the inflammation. Patients often report getting relief for two to six weeks.
Radial Nerve Block. The radial nerve helps transmit pain felt in your triceps, the back of your forearm, and in your wrist. It is on the side of your little finger. A radial nerve block is an injection of an anesthetic given to relieve the pain.
