Let us first begin by getting a better understanding of tennis elbow, including what is tennis elbow, causes of tennis elbow, tennis elbow symptoms and also what is the best treatment for tennis elbow?
What is Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow is a very painful inflammatory condition that involves the outer side of the forearm and elbow. The medical term for tennis elbow is “lateral epicondylitis” and although the condition can be common in individuals that play tennis, anyone can develop this condition.
Tennis elbow is classified as an overuse or overload injury which results from injury and damage (small micro tears) in the tendon which attaches to the bony bump on the outside of the elbow (Lateral epicondyle). This inflamed tendon attaches the muscle at the front of the forearm that is responsible for the wrist bending backwards to the outside of the elbow, hence why pain can radiate up the outer forearm.
Causes of Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow is caused by ongoing stresses that overtime result in the formation of small micro tears and scars in the tendon that attaches to the outer side of the elbow.
Activities that can cause such overload injuries include:
- Poor technique during sports such as tennis which can place strain on the elbow joint
- Sporting equipment that is too large or heavy for the arm,
- Jobs that involve repetitive movements of the hands and arms
- Placing regular heavy loads on the muscles and joint of the arms
- Age related wear and tear of the tendons.
Tennis Elbow Symptoms
Tennis elbow symptoms include:
- Pain in the elbow joint,
- Pain when straightening the arm
- Dull ache at rest
- Pain when opening the fingers or bending the wrist upwards
- Decreased strength in the arm and weak grip
Finally let’s discuss treatment for tennis elbow options
In addition to resting plus bracing the arm and elbow, treatment for tennis elbow may include:
- Non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin & ibuprofen.
- Analgesic medication in order to relieve pain
- An injection with a steroid into the affected area, and
- Surgery in extreme cases
Unfortunately the above mentioned tennis elbow treatments may not be appropriate for some people. Reasons for this may include;
- If you have already used or tried these medications and found little benefit.
- You may have a pre-existing condition which doesn’t permit you to take such medications
- You may feel steroid injections for tennis elbow to painful, risky and invasive
On the other hand you may just prefer to use a natural treatment for tennis elbow.
