PostSubject: What is Tennis Elbow?   Wed Aug 09, 2017 10:27 pm



Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition that affects the outside or lateral side of the elbow and can cause pain even when gripping or carrying a very light object, like a coffee cup. About half of all tennis players will experience this condition at some point in their lives, but they only account for about 5% of all those who suffer from it, as the condition can be brought on by many activities.

Many people confuse tennis elbow with two other painful conditions: golfer's elbow or medial epicondylitis, and bursitis. Golfer's elbow is brought about by the same types of activities, but the pain is primarily felt on the inside of the elbow rather than the outside. The pain of bursitis is at the back of the elbow.

Tennis elbow will typically cause recurring pain at the outside top of the forearm just below the elbow, and the pain may radiate down the arm. Bending, lifting, or straightening the arm will also cause pain due to inflamed muscles and tendons. Typical bouts last six to 12 weeks, but it can also last shorter or longer periods of time.
