A pinched nerve in the neck can be very painful. However, there are a number of treatments that can help ease pain and relieve pressure on the nerve.
A lateral epicondylitis release is a surgery commonly used to treat tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis). It is used when conservative treatments fail to resolve the pain and loss of grip strength caused by this overuse injury. By cutting the damaged tendon at the point where it attaches to the bone, called the lateral epicondyle, the tension in the elbow can be relieved along with accompanying symptoms.
Rupture of the distal biceps tendon is an increasingly frequent injury sustained predominantly by middle aged males. Despite the prevalence of sport in this age group, little is known regarding return to sport outcomes following surgery.
