Tennis Elbow

What is Tennis Elbow?

Lateral Epicondylitis, or Tennis Elbow, is a condition of the elbow which causes inflammation from the wrist to the outside elbow and degeneration of the tendons of the elbow. The tendons attach to the lateral epicondyle, the bony bump on the outer side of the elbow.

Tennis Elbow is a common sports injury, especially in the game of Tennis, due to the repetitive use of the wrist and elbow when hitting a tennis ball, hence the name “Tennis Elbow”.

Tennis Elbow can also be caused by; repetitive motions, other sports, manual work and even common activities such as using scissors or gardening.

What are the symptoms of Tennis Elbow?

The symptoms of Tennis Elbow vary depending on the severity of the condition. The most common symptoms of Tennis Elbow include:

  • Pain in or around the elbow
  • Pain on the outside of the forearm
  • Pain that radiates towards the wrist
  • Pain when bending your arm
  • Difficulty using your wrist and arm for normal activities such as turning a door handle

While Tennis Elbow may seem like a small issue, it must be treated in order to prevent it from getting worse. If left untreated, Tennis Elbow may require surgery.

What do I do next?
