Pain on the outer aspect of elbow may be because of two reasons.
- 1. Tennis elbow. The pain is on bony prominence due to de generation of certain muscle fibers. There are various treatment options available from non-operative to surgical methods
- 2. Radial tunnel Syndrome. The pain is on the muscle mass distal to bony prominence .This happens due to motor branch of radial nerve getting pinched between the surrounding muscles. This may require release of constriction over the nerve.
