Lateral Epicondylagia: Peri-articular injections
Identify the tenderest point of the epicondyle by gentle palpation.

Insert the needle at 90 degrees to the point of maximal pain on the lateral epicondyle. After insertion to the epicondyle, angle the needle at 45 degrees (or thereabout) and inject half the contents as the needle is withdrawn to the skin (without exiting the skin).

Insert the needle to 45 degrees in the opposite direction to the epicondylar point of maximum pain and inject the remaining contents on withdrawing of the needle outward. The needle is removed from the skin.

The elbow is flexed and extended five times and then internally and externally rotated five times.

Uses

SportVis™is intended as well to relieve chronic pain and disability of the elbow after lateral epicondylagia.

SportVis™ sodium hyaluronate augments the sodium hyaluronate naturally present in the soft tissue of the ankle joint or elbow tissue thereby providing the ideal environment for healing of the damaged tissue.
