WHAT IS TENNIS ELBOW & TENNIS ELBOW SYMPTOMS
Tennis elbow is the common name given to the medical condition of lateral epicondylitis. All this means is that there is inflammation at the outer part of the elbow, specifically the tendons that attach to the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. This causes pain at the elbow and sometimes it is even sensitive to the touch. This is commonly caused by repetitive use such as computer work, tennis or any other daily activity or sport that uses a lot of wrist movement. This can be anywhere from a small nagging pain to a debilitating pain. A proper diagnosis helps to localize the exact cause of the pain.
HOW IS TENNIS ELBOW DIAGNOSED?
Your doctor will go through a thorough consultation and examination in order to help locate the exact cause of your tennis elbow. With the proper orthopedic testing your doctor will be able to identify if your tennis elbow is coming from a bone, muscle, ligament or if it is even possibly a pinched nerve, muscle strain or sprain. Your doctor may also request X-Rays or an MRI if necessary.
