elbow

If you live in the Atlanta area and want an experienced orthopedic surgeon to treat your tennis elbow, you can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a common overuse injury that causes inflammation of the tendons that attach to the bony prominence on the outside of the elbow. For those that suffer, it can be a painful condition that restricts certain hobbies, sports and professional careers.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians we have experienced orthopedic surgeons who stay at the forefront of Sports Medicine, including elbow injuries. We have helped countless patients recover from tennis elbow, from weekend gardeners to professional athletes. You can trust that we will use the most advanced and minimally invasive surgical techniques available to eliminate your pain and restore full strength and function to your elbow.

Causes and Symptoms of Tennis Elbow

Although tennis elbow can be caused by a direct trauma, it is most commonly a result of overuse, or repeated muscle contractions in the forearm. This leads to inflammation and micro-tears in the tendons that attach to the bony structures on the outside of the elbow. Tennis players are certainly at high risk for this injury, but tennis elbow can also be caused by activities such as painting, gardening, hammering and playing musical instruments.

If you suffer from the following tennis elbow symptoms, we invite you to explore your treatment options at our state-of-the-art facility in Atlanta:

  • Elbow pain that gradually worsens
  • Pain at the outside of the elbow that radiates to the forearm and wrist when grasping objects
  • Weak grip
  • Painful grip
  • Exacerbated pain in the elbow when the wrist is bent back

At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we treat all types of sports related injuries and complex elbow conditions. We make it a priority to fully explain your treatment options. We also work collaboratively with your physician, Chiropractor or physical therapist to ensure you receive the valued continuity of care you deserve. Contact us today for a consultation and evaluation regarding your tennis elbow. Our Atlanta practice is fully equipped to deliver the quality treatment you need for a full and speedy recovery.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
