The motions that cause tennis elbow are found in a lot of activities including painting, plumbing, cutting meats and various other recreational sports. Sometimes you can even get tennis elbow without partaking in any sort of repetitive motion, known as an insidious case. However you got your tennis elbow being an informed sufferer is the key!

Those suffering from tennis elbow usually feel the brunt of the pain in the tendons that attach to the bony bump part of your elbow. The pain of tennis elbow does not necessarily result from a singular accident or injury.

  • A pain or burning in outer part of elbow.

  • A weakened grip.

  • Pain that accompanies things like turning a doorknob or holding a mug.

Treatment

Many cases of tennis elbow will resolve themselves over time. However, the persistent pain that a sufferer experiences may bring them to seek treatment.

  • Your doctor may require that you participate in some form of physical therapy, or do some of the exercises at home. This can help to strengthen the muscles of the forearm.

  • Sometimes sufferers of tennis elbow are encouraged to wear a brace that prevents the tendons from being overworked.

  • A doctor may also suggest that you treat the problem at the source: meaning practicing a new form or with new equipment, if your injury is sports related.

  • In rarer, more serious, cases tennis elbow may result in corrective surgery that removes diseased muscle.

If you’re looking to treat tennis elbow call orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Matthew T. Boes and schedule an appointment today.
