Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow or Lateral Epicondylitis is the most common overuse syndrome in the elbow, affecting about 3% of the population. The condition is commonly seen in 35-54 years, less common in the under 30 age group. It commonly occurs in the dominant arm as an overuse injury to the extensor tendons on the outside of the elbow joint and into the forearm.  It is not confined to tennis players and is commonly affected by work related activities involving repetitive gripping and manual tasks that put strain on the tendons. The condition begins as an inflammation but develops into a chronic overuse degenerative injury with repeated microtrauma leading to disruption of the tendon’s structure.

Symptoms

Tennis elbow is characterised by pain over the outer side of the elbow, which commonly radiates into the forearm. It may be painful to touch the bony prominence of the lateral epicondyle on the outside of the elbow joint. The pain is normally made worse by extending or straightening the wrist, carrying objects especially with the elbow extended and gripping activities, such as squeezing a cloth, using a computer mouse or shaking hands.

Initial Self-Management

Initial treatment to manage the symptoms of tennis elbow should include the following, but a thorough physiotherapy consultation is advised to diagnose the condition and provide the appropriate treatment, exercise and advice;

  • Rest- Movements that aggravates pain should be avoided
  • Painkillers
  • Anti-inflammatories
  • Ice

Physiotherapy Treatment Options

  • Forearm brace (to reduce the stress whilst allowing you to continue with some activity)
