Lidocain injections are often regarded as a potential replacement for corticosteroid injections, as the latter have been demonstrated to weaken tendons in the long-term (> 6 months).

What are the long term effects of Lidocain injections to treat a tendinopathy?

I wonder whether, from a long-term perspective, Lidocain injections help treat the tendinopathy, or on the contrary, have some deleterious effects, as corticosteroid injections do. (or has no long term effect)

I am mostly interested in epicondylitis (epicondylopathy).
