Patient

Q: My MRI shows Partial Tear 11x9 mm partial tear of the common extensor tendon. I have had 5 cortisone injections over the last re years because of severe pain radiating down my forearm especially during an 8 hour day at work on a computer . What would be your next course of treatment. Thanks

Doctor

A:   Hi.

Thanks for your query, read and understood your history of 5 cortisone injections for pain radiating down the forearm and MRI shows Partial Tear 11x9 mm partial tear of the common extensor tendon.

The entails two different problems:
-The tear in the common extensor tendon may need repair.
- The pain in the forearm radiating down can be due to multiple causes and a proper clinical evaluation and examination by an Orthopedic Surgeon can help you to get a proper diagnosis and treatment.

I hope this answers your query.
