Tennis Elbow (medically known as lateral epicondylitis) is a common
elbow pain faced by many people. Its main characteristic is pain over
the outer side of the elbow (as opposed to the inner part of elbow of
Golfer's Elbow), that can travel or radiate down the forearm. Also,
despite the name, this condition does not only affect tennis players or
In fact, Tennis Elbow is so common it
affects about 3% of the population, and is often caused by work-related
activities (though yes, people who play racquet games and sports are
prone to this condition but only in 5% of the group). Both men and women
aged 30 - 50 years suffer from it.
It starts as
swelling, inflammation and pain at the outer part of the elbow and
forearm, just above the elbow joint. The activities that cause it are
similar to the activities that also cause Golfer's Elbow, which are
prolonged gripping activities e.g. weight lifting, musical instruments,
digging, driving, hammering and racquet games. If the patient disregard

persistent pain and degeneration as well as weakness of the elbow and
This condition is relatively straightforward

aggravated with gripping-related activities, and gets worse if it is
During the initial, more acute stage, we will start you on pain relief approaches such as Cold Therapy and Electrotherapy
to decrease the inflammation and provide pain relief. Then we will
reinforce patient to rest the injured part, but if the patient prefers
to, we can fabricate a splint that will ease the pain and still allow
the patient to continue their daily activities and work.
the acute stage is over, we will start more active hand therapy and/or
physiotherapy interventions - active range of motion exercises,
resistive Exercise and Movement therapy, ultrasound to accelerate healing, and activity modification to prevent Tennis Elbow from recurring.
