Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is an overuse injury that causes inflammation of the tendons on the outside (lateral) side of the upper arm near the elbow. Tennis elbow is usually caused by overuse of the forearm muscles. The signs and symptoms of Tennis Elbow include pain over the outside of the elbow, pain when lifting objects, and a weakened grip. The standard options for treating tennis elbow include rest, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, and surgery. These treatment options can take several months or years for symptoms to improve. A new treatment option is now available called FAST or focused aspiration of scar tissue which is designed to remove the source of pain faster and safer than traditional open surgery.
