Tennis Elbow: Clinical Management (Paperback)Jennifer Moriatis Wolf (editor)
- We can order this
Bringing together the current knowledge and evidence about the causes and management of tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, the diagnosis and various treatment options for this common sports injury are presented in detail. Generally attributed to overexertion or repetitive motion of the elbow joint, tennis elbow causes pain, tenderness and stiffness in the elbow and wrist even in non-athletic, day-to-day activities, such as lifting and pulling. Beginning with its etiology, subsequent chapters explore both conservative and surgical treatments, from physical therapy, joint injections and acupuncture to arthroscopy, open surgery and denervation. Outcomes, rehabilitation and return to play are also discussed, as are techniques and indications for handling complications and revision surgery. Ideal for orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine practitioners, Tennis Elbow: Clinical Management is a practical reference for any clinician treating athletes or active patients.

"This book discusses the definition, history, and treatment of tennis elbow/lateral epicondylitis with an emphasis on evidence-based medicine when available. ... The intended audience appears to be healthcare providers who manage patients with tennis elbow. The book is an excellent source of information for primary care providers and physical therapists, a wonderful review for sports medicine and orthopedic surgeons, and is a good introduction for students." (Melissa Anne Novak, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2015)
