How does a doctor know my child has tennis elbow?

Your child's physician makes the diagnosis after a physical exam and a medical history. During the exam, your doctor may evaluate your child's forearm and wrist movement, apply pressure to the affected areas or ask your child to describe his or her pain. X-rays may also be used to rule out other causes for your child's pain.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
