The most common local injuries are tennis and golfers elbow. These are irritations of the attachments of certain muscles into the bone either side of the elbow – tennis elbow relates to the outside of the elbow, golfers elbow the inside. In both cases it is rare for only the muscle attachment to be affected. By the time it becomes bad enough to be painful the local nerves, muscles and the joint itself has often become inflamed and irritated. All components have to be assessed and treated.
