Consultation and assessment

Most cases are resolved without medical treatment, especially when the causative activity is avoided. Persistent cases may be treated with simple analgesia or a local injection of hydrocortisone, depending on its severity, but repeated injections should be avoided. Other effective non-surgical measures include extensor mass stretching exercises and deep massage of the extensor mass, followed by cooling the elbow with ice packs. Open or arthroscopic surgery may be indicated occasionally, and local excision of the abnormal tissue will produce good results in 70 – 90% of the patients.
