Botox May Relieve Pain of Tennis Elbow

A new study has found that an injection of Botox relieves the pain of tennis elbow for up to three months. The findings of the study have been published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

The new study is the first to find that botulinum toxin injections outperformed a placebo in the treatment of tennis elbow. In this case, injections of plain saline served as the placebo. (Reuters UK)
