Tennis Elbow Symptoms

By March 12, 2015Symptoms

Tennis elbow is a type of tendinitis swelling of the tendons that causes pain in the elbow and arm. These tendons are bands of tough tissue that connect the muscles of your lower arm to the bone.
The causes of Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow usually develops over time. Repetitive motion like gripping a racket during a swing- can strain the muscles and put too much stress on the tendons. That constant tugging can eventually cause microscopic in the tissue.
Tennis elbow might result from:
● Tennis
● Racquetball
● Squash
● Fencing
● Weight lifting
It can also affect people with jobs or hobbies that require repetitive arm movements or gripping such as:-
● Carpentry
● Typing
● Painting
● Raking
● Knitting
Symptoms of Tennis Elbow
The symptoms of Tennis elbow include pain and tenderness in the bony knob on the outside of your elbow. This knob is where the injured tendons connect to the bone. The pain may also radiate into the upper or lower arm. Although the damage is in the elbow, you’re likely to hurt when doing things with your hands.
Treatment for Tennis Elbow
Treatment is that usually tennis elbow will heal on its own. You just need to give your elbow a break and do what you can to speed the healing. Most of the time, these treatment will do the trick. But if you have a severe case of tennis elbow that doesn’t respond to two to four months of conservative treatment, you may need surgery. In the procedure, the damage section of tendon usually is removed and the remaining tendon repaired. About 50% of people with tennis elbow eventually need this treatment.
