If symptoms persist, steroid injection at the epicondyle can also be very helpful.

9) The knee and ankle joints were defined as the mid-points of the epicondyles and malleoli, respectively.
In all probability, the epicondyles of the distal humerus will be approximately 45 degrees in relationship to the IR in this position.
Instead, the trimline of the socket was kept as high as possible or just below the epicondyles of the femur so as to provide mediolateral control about the knee joint.

Subjects had retroreflective hypo-allergenic markers with adhesive backing placed bilaterally on the acromial processes, lateral humeral epicondyles, ulnar styloids, anterior superior iliac crests, superior border of the greater trochanters, lateral femoral epicondyles, inferior tip of the lateral malleous, posterior tip of the calcaneus and dorsum of the feet in line with the calcaneal markers (standard Helen Hayes marker system--Figure 1) (Motion Analysis Corp.
In this procedure the elbow articular line (determined by the medial and lateral epicondyles of humerus), and the wrist articular line (determined by the styloid processes of radius and ulna) were taken as reference.
