Tennis Elbow

What is tennis elbow?

Tennis elbow is the name given to the condition that occurs when the extensor tendons are strained. Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is where the tendons become inflamed where they join the bony part on the outside of the elbow joint and is similar to golfers elbow.



Symptoms
  • Discomfort when moving the arm
  • The outside of the elbow may be tender to the touch and show signs of swelling
  • Repeated movements in the affected area can make the pain worse

Cause
  • Any type of activity that involves gripping and twisting can cause this condition especially if it is continually repeated over a length of time.
  • Although anyone can develop tennis elbow it is more common in those aged between 40 - 60
 
Treatment
  • Physiotherapy and exercise can help alleviate much of the persistent pain as well as a sufficient rest for the affected area
  • Over the counter pain medication can help deal with the pain
  • For more serious injuries surgery can be used or cortisone injection in the affected area can be prescribed

Prevention
  • Avoid repetitive movements of the elbow and hand over an extended period of time
  • Consider using a brace or support to reduce strain
  • Be aware of repetitive movements that may cause this type of strain and see an occupational therapist if it required regularly for your job activity.
