Went to the doctor Tuesday for medial epicondylitis (Golfer's elbow). Doctor took an X-Ray, prescribed a wrap, a tennis elbow wrap, and told him he needed physical therapy for his...tennis elbow. Asked, "Don't you mean golfer's elbow?" the doc replied, "Same thing."
Ready? Doctor scheduled a follow up visit two days later. (Typically you're going to need 6 weeks of rest and or several weeks plus PT to see any benefit. This doc has him back 2 days later.) And, wait for it...doctor examines the lateral portion of his elbow. "Does this hurt?"
"Good, it's getting better."
"Um, what about here (points to medial portion of his elbow)?"
Doc manipulates that part.
So...two office visits within 3 days and 3 worthless X-Rays submitted to insurance.
