Most people immediately take over-the-counter pain relievers when a tennis elbow strikes. This makes sense. However, relying on these pain relievers for the long-term can be a health concern.
Pain-relieving drugs, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen, can cause a breakdown of the stomach lining (ulcers), or even damage to the liver or kidney when used for long periods or in too high a dosage.
Therefore, if you take pain relievers and they don’t put an end to your pain, you should give us a call.
If the pain in your elbow lasts longer than 14 days, it’s time to take action and set up an appointment with us.
Also, if you can’t bend your elbow or if your elbow is inflamed or looks very swollen, it is recommended you give us a call.
