    Tennis Elbow ... 2nd injection or wait?

    Started having pain in my left elbow about 6 months ago. Got progressively worse. Saw my orthopedic doctor on June 8th. Diagnosed tennis elbow and gave me an injection. I am still having pain and limited use. Should I wait longer or make another appointment to see about another injection? What do you think?

    For anyone who suffers from tennis elbow I would suggest trying the phisical therapy first. Also ESWT (Extracorporeal shock wave therapy) works very well. I had tennis elbow for 8 months and finally I managed to get rid of it using these methods.

    Its been 6 months; why would you wait any longer? Go see the doctor and see what else he/ she suggests. Maybe PT will help? Maybe they want to try a different type of injection...but doing nothing isn't helping you.

    It is true that they do not like to give allot of injections regularly, but 3-4 a year is about's been plenty long enough to schedule a follow up with your doctor!

    I hope you feel better soon.
