Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, medically known as lateral epicondylitis, manifests as pain and tenderness in the outer region of the elbow due to inflammation or damage in the tendons attaching to the lateral epicondyle, a bony protrusion on the outer elbow. Contrary to its name, tennis elbow isn’t exclusive to tennis players; it can affect individuals engaging in repetitive forearm muscle usage, including painters, plumbers, and carpenters. Typical symptoms include discomfort and sensitivity in the outer elbow, reduced grip strength, and challenges in lifting objects.

What Causes Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow, medically termed lateral epicondylitis, typically develops when the tendons connecting the forearm muscles to the lateral epicondyle are subjected to repetitive stress or overuse. This condition is characterized by the formation of tiny tears in these tendons due to the constant strain, leading to inflammation and subsequent pain in the outer part of the elbow. Despite its name suggesting a tennis-related origin, this condition can occur as a result of various activities that involve repetitive wrist and arm movements. For instance, occupations such as painting, carpentry, typing, and tasks involving handheld tools like screwdrivers or hammers can all contribute to the development of tennis elbow.

Moreover, several risk factors can increase an individual’s susceptibility to developing tennis elbow. Age plays a significant role, with the condition most commonly affecting individuals between the ages of 30 and 50. Additionally, gender can influence the likelihood of developing tennis elbow, as it is more prevalent in men compared to women. Certain occupations that involve repetitive arm movements, such as those mentioned earlier, can also heighten the risk. Furthermore, individuals with a history of previous elbow injury or arthritis may be more prone to developing tennis elbow due to compromised joint integrity. These factors collectively contribute to the multifaceted nature of tennis elbow, extending beyond its association with the sport of tennis.
