Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after doctors for tennis elbow treatment in Palm Beach. Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is an elbow condition affecting the tendon origins in the outer elbow. It receives the name “tennis elbow” since it is frequently seen in tennis players.

Tennis Elbow Symptoms and Diagnosis

Tennis Elbow: Tear in Tendon, Tendon, Lateral Epicondyle


The extensor carpi radialis brevis (one of the muscles in the back of the forearm) has a tendon that originates in the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. The role of this muscle is to help extend the wrist. In tennis elbow, this tendinous origin undergoes degeneration leading to weakening and inflammation. As a result, patients experience pain at the location of the tendon origin with activities that cause wrist extension.



Surgery is very effective at improving pain caused by tendon degeneration in tennis elbow. The procedure removes the diseased tendon origin that is causing the symptoms thereby relieving pain.
