In their study, published recently in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, Olaussen and his colleagues looked at outcomes for 177 Norwegian patients with a recently available onset of tennis elbow pain. Symptoms of tennis elbow add a weak hold and pain from harm to tendons in the forearm. Frequently, this occurs from repetitive use, such as for example with tennis, carpentry or golf. The individuals in this study had experienced their symptoms for to 90 days up. Each was randomly assigned to 1 of three groupings: either no treatment aside from drugs such as naproxen ; physical therapy for 12 classes along with two corticosteroid injections to lessen inflammation; or 12 classes of physical therapy and two placebo injections.Researchers from UU will be trained in Boston. We wish that our common interests and complementary knowledge and the expertise of the different members will be very helpful in getting this project going in a method that could not be performed by either of the two groups working by itself..
