Tennis elbow
Tennis elbow is a conditionthat causes pain around the outside of the elbow. It's clinically known as lateral epicondylitis.It often occurs after strenuous overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm, near the elbow joint. You may notice pain: On the outside of your upper forearm, just below the bend of your elbow When lifting or bending your arm When gripping small objects, such as a pen When twisting your forearm, such as turning a door handle or opening a jar You may also find it difficult to fully extend your forearm. Read more about thesymptoms of tennis elbow. What causes tennis elbow? Tennis elbow is usually caused by overusing the muscles attached to your elbow and used to straighten your wrist. If the muscles and tendons are strained, tiny tears and inflammation can develop near the bony lump (the lateral epicondyle) on the outside of your elbow. Pain that occurs on the inner side of the elbow is often known as golfer's elbow. Read more about thecauses of tennis elbow. When to see your GP If your elbow pain is caused by a strenuous or repetitive activity, you should avoid the activity until your symptoms improve. Visit your GP if the pain in your elbow persists, despite resting it for a few days. Treating tennis elbow Tennis elbow is a self-limiting condition, which means it will eventually get better without treatment. It is important you rest your injured arm and stop doing the activity that is causing the problem. Holding a cold compress, against your elbow for a few minutes several times a day can help ease the pain. Elbow supports specifically designed for tennis elbow (epicondylitis clasps) can be used to support and ease pain when you cannot avoid (or will not avoid) activities that will aggravate the condition for example, playing tennis or violin practice! Taking painkillers, such asparacetamol, may help reduce mild pain caused by tennis elbow. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such asibuprofen, can also be used to help reduce inflammation. Physiotherapy may be recommended in more severe and persistent cases. Surgery may be used as a last resort to remove the damaged tendon. Most cases of tennis elbow last between six months and two years. However, in about nine out of 10 cases, a full recovery is made within a year. Read more abouthow tennis elbow is treated.
