Tennis Elbow Symptoms & Treatment

Tennis elbow is a form of tendonitis regularly experienced by tennis players, as well as labourers and carpenters who endure repetitive use of the elbow. Tennis elbow is quite like Golfer’s elbow and therefore both require rest to avoid serious and long-term damage.

Tennis elbows is a condition where the outer parts of the elbow become sore and tender, whereas Golfer’s elbow impacts the inside of the elbow; both are a repetitive strain injury and can lead to damage in the forearm muscles and tendons without proper treatment. Don’t be fooled, even if you’ve never been near a court, you may be suffering from this form of tendonitis; any activity which involves gripping, predominantly with the thumb and first two fingers can contribute to tennis elbow. Though it can happen at any age, it most commonly shows signs at around the age of 40. If not correctly treated, surgery can be the only resort, and therefore it is important to recognise the injury early and take the appropriate steps to help the elbow heal.

Symptoms include;

  • Stiffness & weakness in the forearm
  • Swelling in the elbow area
  • Pain and/or tenderness in the outer elbow
  • Pain radiating from the elbow to the hands and up the arms
  • Pain when gripping, lifting or extending the wrist
