Talk to some of the older players to see if any can recommend doctors who have been effective for them and/or specialize in physical therapy approaches.
The Dr I mentioned above, John Cianca, wrote an article that led me to believe that he has a sound understanding of tendon injuries and treatment. I had golfer's elbow and believe that what he wrote stopped me from playing more tennis and likely helped me avoid a chronic GE injury (tendinosis). I can't know for sure but that is what I believe. After reading the review articles above I believe that many tendon injuries have mostly become tendinosis perhaps mixed with tendinitis. Effective treatment is difficult. I would seek the opinion of a Dr who would discuss both tendinitis and tendinosis with me. Get more than one opinion.
