Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. Golfers Elbow (medial epicondylitis) is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscle on the inside of the elbow. Both are painful conditions caused by repetitive overuse of the joint. The symptoms of tennis/ golfers elbow develop gradually and can worsen over weeks and months.
Common Symptoms include;
- Weakened grip strength of the hand
- Pain, numbness or burning sensations of the elbow and down the arm.
- Increased symptoms during activities involving repetitive movement of the elbow
Elbow supports can be an effective conservative method in reducing the symptoms and pains associated with tennis elbow. There are different designs available and your orthotist can assist in deciding which style is best for your individual needs.
