Lateral epicondylitis may present concomitantly with cervical radiculopathy, which may radiate pain into the shoulders and down into the hands.
In this regard, can tennis elbow affect your upper arm?
The symptoms of tennis elbow include pain and tenderness in the bony knob on the outside of your elbow. This knob is where the injured tendons connect to the bone. The pain may also radiate into the upper or lower arm. Although the damage is in the elbow, you’re likely to hurt when doing things with your hands.
Keeping this in view, how do you treat tendonitis in the shoulder and elbow?
