Although elbow injuries are common, many don’t require surgery.1 Talking with an orthopedic expert can help patients relieve pain as quickly as possible, and coming to see an orthopedic expert sooner rather than later can help avoid surgery. One of the most common injuries is tendonitis, or tennis elbow, which can be a painful condition that occurs by overloading the tendons in the arms with repetitive motion or stress. Despite the name, tennis elbow or tendonitis doesn’t exclude itself to athletes. Any individual can develop symptoms with jobs or activities that require repetitive motions or stress on the area.2
If you want to get back to living your best life without the limits of orthopedic pain, the JIS Orthopedics team of physicians can help you get there.
