About Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition of the elbow caused by overuse. Repetitive motion activities like not surprisingly tennis can be the cause. However, several other activities can also put you at risk.

Tennis elbow is simply an inflammation of the tendons that connect the elbow to the muscles of the forearm. Repeating the same motion again and again can cause damage to the forearm muscles and tendons. This damage leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.

Muscles, ligaments, and tendons hold the elbow joint together.

Tennis elbow, involves the muscles and tendons of your forearm. Your forearm muscles extend your wrist and fingers and the tendons are called extensor. They attach on the lateral epicondyle. The tendon usually involved in tennis elbow is called the Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis (ECRB).

Cause

Overuse

Is a result of damage to a specific forearm muscle call the extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) muscle which helps stabilize the wrist when the elbow is straight. When this muscle is weakened small tears form in the tendon where it attaches to the lateral epicondyle. This leads to inflammation and pain.

The ECRB may also be at increased risk for damage because of its position. As the elbow bends and straightens, the muscle rubs against bony bumps. This can cause gradual wear and tear of the muscle over time.

Activities

Tennis player are not the only people that get tennis elbow. Many people with tennis elbow participate in work or play that requires repetitive and vigorous use of the muscle of the forearm.  It is common for painters, plumbers, and carpenters to developed tennis elbow. It is thought that the repetition and weight lifting required in these occupations leads to injury.

Symptoms

In most cases, the pain begins as mild and slowly worsens over weeks and months. There is usually no specific injury associated with the start of symptoms.

Common signs and symptoms of tennis elbow include:

  • Pain or burning on the outer part of your elbow
  • Weak grip strength

The symptoms are often worsened with forearm activity, such as holding a racquet, turning a wrench, or shaking hands.

Treatment

Nonsurgical Treatment - Approximately 80% to 95% of patients have success with nonsurgical treatment.
  • Rest. - The first step toward recovery is to give your arm proper rest.

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines. - Drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen reduce pain and swelling.

  • Physical therapy. - Specific exercises are helpful for strengthening the muscles of the forearm. Your therapist may also perform ultrasound, ice massage, or muscle-stimulating techniques to improve muscle healing.

  • Brace. - Using a brace centered over the back of your forearm may also help relieve symptoms of tennis elbow. This can reduce symptoms by resting the muscles and tendons.

  • Reduce Inflammation. - With cold and compression or injection of Steroids, such as cortisone, are very effective anti-inflammatory medicines.
