Research and new developments for elbow pain

Arthritis Research UK is currently funding a study which aims to find out how cortisone, a steroid which is often given to treat tendon pain, causes tendon damage. This will hopefully lead to new treatments for tendon pain, such as golfer’s elbow, which will protect against the side-effects of cortisone while keeping its positive pain-relieving effects.

Another Arthritis Research UK-funded study is looking into the effects of earlier physiotherapy on the levels of long-term arm pain and whether resting or exercising is better for reducing pain.
