Tennis / Golf Elbow


Overuse Injuries / Repetitive Stress Injuries

DO YOU SUFFER WITH symptoms of pain on your outer or inner elbow, painful grip, trouble turning a door knob?

"It is a widely held belief that the muscles of the mobile wad of three ( the extensor carpi radialis brevis in particular ) are involved in "tennis elbow", a condition in which the extensor muscles, strained by an unusual amount of stress, cause pain at the lateral epicondyle¹ of the elbow and along the course of the muscles."
Physical Examination of the Spine and Extremities

¹ A rounded projection at the end of a bone that serves as an attachment for ligaments and muscle tendons.

It is called Tennis Elbow or lateral epicondylitis when there is an injury to the outer elbow tendon. It is called Golfer's Elbow or medial epicondylitis when there is an injury to the inner elbow tendon.

However, elbow tendinopathy can be caused by sports other than golf and tennis, as well as work-related activities that involve heavy use of the wrist and forearm muscles.
