EPICONDILITIS MEDIAL LATERAL PDF

Despite advances elucidating the causes of lateral and medial epicondylitis, the standard of care remains conservative management with NSAIDs, physical therapy, bracing, and rest. Scar tissue formation provoked by conservative management creates a tendon lacking the biomechanical properties and mechanical strength of normal tendon. The following review analyzes novel therapies to regenerate tendon and regain function in patients with epicondylitis. While these treatments are in early stages of investigation, they may warrant further consideration based on prospects of pain alleviation, function enhancement, and improved healing. Epicondylitis is a prevalent disorder of the arm that affects men and women equally, predominantly between the ages of 45 and 54 years.

Medial epicondylitis is inflammation of the flexor pronator muscle mass originating at the medial epicondyle of the elbow. Diagnosis is with provocative testing. Treatment is rest and ice and then exercises and gradual return to activity.

Medial epicondylitis is caused by any activity that places a valgus force on the elbow or that involves forcefully flexing the volar forearm muscles, as occurs during pitching, golfing with improper technique, serving a tennis ball particularly with top spin, with a racket that is too heavy or too tightly strung or has an undersized grip, or with heavy balls , and throwing a javelin.

Nonathletic activities that may cause medial epicondylitis include bricklaying, hammering, and typing. Pain occurs in the flexor pronator tendons attached to the medial epicondyle and in the medial epicondyle when the wrist is flexed or pronated against resistance. To confirm the diagnosis, the examiner has the patient sit in a chair with the forearm resting on a table and the hand supinated.

The patient tries to raise the fist by bending the wrist while the examiner holds it down. Pain around the medial epicondyle and in the flexor tendon origin confirms the diagnosis. See also How to Examine the Elbow. Treatment is symptomatic and similar to that of lateral epicondylitis.

Patients should avoid any activity that causes pain. Initially, rest, ice, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs NSAIDs , and stretching are used, occasionally with a corticosteroid injection into the painful area around the tendon.

When pain subsides, gentle resistive exercises of the extensor and flexor muscles of the forearm are done, followed by eccentric and concentric resistive exercises. In general, surgery is considered only after at least 9 to 12 months of failed conservative management.

Surgical techniques to treat medial epicondylitis involve removing scar tissue and reattaching damaged tissues.
