Tennis Elbow Symptoms and Diagnosis
Tennis Elbow Symptoms
Symptoms of tennis elbow include:
- A burning pain on the outside of the elbow that can spread down your arm to your wrist. The pain often starts off mild and then worsens over time.
- Tenderness to the touch.
- Pain when extending your wrist or when holding objects, like coffee mugs.
Tennis Elbow Diagnosis
To diagnose tennis elbow, your doctor will do a physical exam — looking at your elbow and the source of pain.
He or she will ask about your activities and past injuries.
In most cases, you won't need imaging tests unless your symptoms don't improve with tennis elbow treatment.
Then, your doctor may need to do an x-ray or MRI to rule out any bone problem or tissue damage.
