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.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
