Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a tendinitis (inflammation of the tendon) of the extensor muscles of the forearm. The condition is when the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender. It may be caused by a sudden injury or by repetitive use of the arm. The most common activities which affect this area are bending the wrist backwards (extension), turning the hand palm side up, and lifting an object with the elbow straight out

The pain is usually worse with strong gripping with the elbow in an extended position, as in a tennis back hand stroke, but this problem can occur in golf and other sports as well as with repetitive use of tools.

People who are a high risk of tennis elbow are ones whose occupation requires strenuous or repetitive forearm movement, such as a mechanic or carpenter. People who participate in sports that require strenuous repetitive forearm movement, such as tennis and golf, are especially prone to this condition.

Tennis elbow is very similar to Golder's elbow. Golfer's elbow occurs on the inside aspect of the elbow where muscles attach to the bone. Golfer's elbow is generally caused by overuse or overload of the muscles along the inside of the forearm.


* Pain on the outer part of the elbow (lateral epicondyle)
* Point tenderness over the lateral epicondyle—a prominent part of the bone on the outside of the elbow
* Pain from gripping and movements of the wrist, especially wrist extension[citation needed] and lifting movements
* Pain from activities that use the muscles that extend[citation needed] the wrist (e.g. pouring a container of liquid, lifting with the palm down, sweeping, especially where wrist movement is required)
* Morning stiffne

Treatment & Prevation

* Decrease the amount of playing time if already injured or feeling pain in outside part of the elbow.
* Strengthen the muscles of the forearm: (Pronator quadratus, Pronator teres, and Supinator muscle)—the upper arm: (biceps, triceps, Deltoid muscle)—and the shoulder and upper back (trapezius). Increased muscular strength increases stability of joints such as the elbow
* Using Tennis supports such as EL-N-12,TEN-N-11, TEN-N-12 from Irufa Industrial Group for the prevation.
* Stretch exercises .
* Using RICE (Rest, Ice, compression, evaulation) principle. such as UNI-01-CH , EL-04-CH Cold hot gel support from Irufa Industrial Group.
* In recalcitrant cases, surgery may be an option
