Tennis elbow incidence rates show 'significant' decline since 2000
from PT in Motion
Authors of a new study conclude that incidence rates for new-onset tennis elbow have decreased "significantly" since 2000, while the use of surgery continues to rise. What's harder to pinpoint is exactly why the numbers look the way they do. In what its authors believe is the first-ever study to describe the incidence and natural history of lateral elbow tendinosis, researchers closely examined medical records of 5,867 patients in a single Minnesota county for incidence and surgery rates between 2000 and 2012.
