Could you have Tennis Elbow?

August 31, 2022

Do you suffer with pain and tenderness around the outside of the elbow?

Have elbow pain when picking up or gripping objects?

Is it painful or stiff when stretching out the hand and fingers?

Then you might have tennis elbow, our expert Morgan tells us about Tennis elbow, (also known as lateral epicondylitis) and how we can help with the condition.

Tennis elbow is a painful condition of the elbow, where the extensor tendons (tendons that pull the hand and fingers up) pull on their origin site (the lateral epicondyle), which causes pain and tenderness around the area.

Tennis elbow is considered an overuse injury, caused by repetitive extension of the wrist and therefore is found more commonly in the dominant hand of that person.

Although it is reported that 50% of tennis players have presented with Tennis elbow at some point in their careers, other jobs that involve lifting and gripping heavy objects such as construction workers can also suffer with Tennis elbow.

How can we help?

Manual therapy has been demonstrated in current research to be an effective way of improving the soft tissue abnormities that cause Tennis Elbow and will help to reduce the numbness and tingling pain in in patients.
