What is Tennis Elbow?

A very common term for pain that affects the outside of the elbow medically known as lateral epicondylitis.  You don’t have to be a tennis player to suffer from this condition, but the condition is very common in racquet sports, where the participants engage in repetitive grasping movements.

Symptoms of Tennis Elbow?

  • Pain in or around the elbow joint
  • Stiffness/pain with movement
  • Weakness in hand or wrist
  • Tingling or numbness in forearm and/or fingers
  • Limited movement of the elbow

Causes of Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow is a painful condition due to the overloading of the arm or wrist tendons.  Ironically, most tennis elbow conditions are not the result of sports injury, but rather develop due to repetitive movements at work such as:

    • Use of plumbing tools
    • Painting
    • Meal preparation, such as cutting ingredients
    • Computer mouse use
