Tendinosis help in NY.

I need some help/advice folks. I have a friend living in NY city who has chronic tendinosis (medial epicondylitis). He's had cortisone injections and physical therapy but it hasn't really helped him. He has serious pain when gripping and turning.
Does anyone know of someone who specializes in dealing with that particular injury in the city area. Also, any ideas for exercises/treatments?

erratic swelling

does anyone else get a swollen foot every now and then?
I don't recall hurting myself, but my right ankle has been swelling on/off since August. I've been on 2 rounds of anti-inflammatories and everything seemed ok until last night when I noticed it was swollen again.
