WHAT IS TENNIS ELBOW?

It is usually an over use injury and most commonly occurs at the junction where the tendon of the Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis muscle insert into the lateral epicondyle of the humerus.

CAUSES :

The more you do it – and tennis is a game of repeated strokes — the greater the chance for tennis elbow. You can get it from other racquet sports, such as squash or racquetball. You can also get it from jobs or activities that involve repetitive arm motion, such as:

  • Tree-cutting (repetitive use of a chain saw)
  • Painting
  • Carpentry
  • Playing some types of musical instruments

Butchers, cooks, and assembly-line workers are among the groups that get it often.

TENNIS ELBOW TREATMENT :

REST :

This is probably the most important part of treatment. If you continue to use the painful elbow then it will not recover as quickly and become chronic and very difficult to heal.
