Tennis Elbow

Our doctors provide expert, advanced care to help manage the pain caused by tennis elbow.

Telehealth appointments are available.

Advanced Care for Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow occurs, when the tendons on the outside of the upper arm near the elbow tear or become inflamed. The most common cause is overuse or repetitive twisting, like that required for a backhand tennis stroke. People with this condition can experience elbow pain.

Other tennis elbow symptoms include:

  • Burning and swelling in your elbow
  • Inability to straighten your arm
  • Weak grip strength

Our orthopedic experts create a care plan to help you manage your symptoms, reduce pain and prevent future injuries, so you can get back to the activities you love.

Why Choose Us for Elbow Pain Treatment and Relief

Your care team includes specialists in orthopedic surgery and physical therapy to deliver complete care.

Our highly experienced doctors offer a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical treatment therapies to increase strength and restore movement to your arm and elbow, including anti-inflammatory medications, and steroid and platelet-rich plasma injections.

The same trusted doctors who treat USC athletes and the LA Kings manage your tennis elbow care.

Our specialists have been named “Top Doctors” by Los Angeles magazine and Pasadena Magazine.
