unusual to tear the muscle in this location, more common to have an insertional tendonitis
i.e. tennis elbow
and antiinflammatory medication can help. the Physio may employ other modalities such as pulsed ultrasound
which have been shown to be therapeutic. occasionally a steroid and local injection onto the lateral epicondylar region of the elbow can help. rarely do we so surgical release of the flexor insertion for this problem. symptoms can be problematic and ongoing as this is a degenerate problem.
