Disappointing Tennia elbow discussion
The episode discussing tennis elbow failed todisappointing discuss any of the alternative treatments including ESWT which is approved as a treatment modality for tennis elbow. Also I personally was treated with PRP and it worked. To discuss surgery before mentioning other approach’s was disappointing.
Sport medicine is comprehensive and all legitimate approach’s deserve at least a mention.
