Elbow and Arm Injuries

Elbow injuries are very common and  mostly related to overuse. Sometimes a bad technical gesture may be associated.

The Lateral Epicondylitis, for example, is very frequent in tennis and golfers.

The Ultrasound Guided techniques, the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Dry Needling can be a good solution depending on the origin of the lesion.

A correct diagnosis is essential for effective treatment of  lesions in the elbow and arm.

Athletes should not continue to play with pain. It is essential to clarify the diagnosis not to aggravate a possible injury.
