The Difference Between Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow

Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are two common conditions that can cause pain to the elbow. Despite their names, tennis elbow is not limited to tennis players, and golfer’s elbow is not limited to golfers. Both conditions can occur due to a number of different occupations and activities. It can sometimes be difficult for those dealing with elbow pain to determine which condition they may be experiencing. Below we have listed information on both conditions and the characteristics that make them different.

What is Tennis Elbow? 

In this video, Dr. Jason Pirozzolo explains tennis elbow, and provides exercises that may help alleviate pain.

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a condition involving the tendons that attach to the bone on the outside (lateral) part of the elbow.

PRP Therapy Surgery Alternative OHSA

OHSA Now Offering PRP Therapy

Orlando Hand Surgery Associates now offers Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy as a new surgery alternative for those dealing with chronic pain and injuries. With PRP therapy you can use the power of your own body to activate healing.

WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?

Platelets and growth factors found in our body are known for their importance in the healing process during an injury. A PRP procedure consists of drawing the patient’s own blood and using a centrifuge to separate the platelets and growth factors from other blood plasma. After separation is complete, the concentrated source of platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the area of pain or injury to activate natural healing within the body.

HOW IS PRP OBTAINED?

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

A typical procedure may take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes. In most cases, patients were able to return to their job, or usual activities, immediately after the procedure.

WILL MY BODY REJECT PRP?

There is little to no chance that your body will reject PRP as the procedure consists of using your own blood.

WILL MORE THAN ONE INJECTION BE REQUIRED?

While many patients receive relief after the first or second PRP injection, the amount of injections needed will depend on the severity of the injury or condition.

WHICH UPPER EXTREMITY INJURIES OR CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED WITH PRP?

Chronic joint pain, tennis & golfers elbow, rotator cuff injuries, ligament tears, osteoarthritis, acute muscle injuries, and much more.
