I am 18 years old. I have been going to a Orthopedic for the past 4 months for my elbow tendinitis. Next step is surgery (I dont want). He advised maybe checking out a Sports Orthopedic, which is an hour away...which I dont care. He also said they have more things to deal with Sport injuries.
What can a Sports Orthopedic do? Does he have more options, injection wise? My orthopedic only has cortisone, which is not ideal for my condition.
Its STILL SWOLLEN around the back/around the elbow. The pain has gone down, but swelling is still there. The tricep tendon is less noticable on my tendinitis elbow. When I first got tendinitis I couldnt do a pushup. 4 months later I can do tricep pushdown half the weight I use to do.
I still CANT do any press exercises. The only tricep exercises that are painfree are lightweight pushbacks/pushdowns
No gym for 3 months
15 sessions of Physical Therapy
appreciate any advice.
