TENNIS ELBOW



Tennis elbow is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overused, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.


The repeated motions and stress to the tissue may result in a series of tiny tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony bump at the outside of your elbow.





Many common arm motions can cause tennis elbow, including:

  • Using plumbing tools

  • Painting

  • Driving screws

  • Cutting up cooking ingredients, particularly meat

  • Repetitive computer mouse use


Treatment options for tennis elbow usually involves conservative management such as physiotherapy. In some cases depending on the severity, Doctors may prescribe a cortisone injection to releif symptoms.
