Understanding Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, medically known as lateral epicondylitis, is a condition that results from overuse of the forearm muscles and tendons, leading to pain and tenderness around the outside of the elbow. 

While the most common cause of tennis elbow is overuse of the forearm, certain risk factors can increase your chances of developing this condition, including:

Repetitive Motion

Repetitive Motion: The primary cause is frequent use of the wrist and arm, especially in activities requiring gripping, twisting, or lifting, leading to overuse of the forearm muscles.

Sudden Impact

A direct blow to the elbow or a forceful movement can also initiate symptoms, alongside the gradual wear and tear from repetitive activities.

Age and Occupation

Individuals between the ages of 30 and 50 and those in jobs requiring repetitive arm and wrist movements are at higher risk.

Sports

Not limited to tennis, but includes other racquet sports and activities that involve throwing or extensive wrist use.

Pain and Tenderness

Repetitive Motion: The primary cause is frequent use of the wrist and arm, especially in activities requiring gripping, twisting, or lifting, leading to overuse of the forearm muscles.

Stiffness

A direct blow to the elbow or a forceful movement can also initiate symptoms, alongside the gradual wear and tear from repetitive activities.

Weakness

Individuals between the ages of 30 and 50 and those in jobs requiring repetitive arm and wrist movements are at higher risk.

Tennis Elbow Treatment Winnipeg FAQs

Are There Any Specific Exercises Recommended for Tennis Elbow?

Specific exercises aimed at strengthening and stretching the muscles around the forearm and elbow are often recommended for tennis elbow recovery. Gentle stretching exercises can help improve flexibility and reduce stiffness in the affected area. Strengthening exercises, focusing on the forearm muscles, can gradually be introduced to build up tendon resilience and prevent future injuries. It's important to perform these exercises under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure they are done correctly and to avoid exacerbating the condition.

What Is the Duration of Treatment for Tennis Elbow?

The duration of treatment for tennis elbow varies depending on the severity of the condition and the individual's response to therapy. Typically, clients may start to see improvement within a few weeks of consistent treatment. However, complete recovery could take several months. It's important to follow a personalized treatment plan, which may include different therapies, to ensure the best outcomes. Consistency in attending therapy sessions and adhering to prescribed home exercises and lifestyle modifications plays a crucial role in the speed and effectiveness of the recovery process.

Is It Necessary to Stop All Activities If I Have Tennis Elbow?

It's not always necessary to stop all activities if you have tennis elbow, but it is crucial to modify or reduce activities that exacerbate the condition. Resting the affected arm and avoiding repetitive motions or heavy lifting that strain the elbow and forearm can help reduce pain and prevent further injury. We may recommend specific modifications to your activities or suggest wearing a brace to support the elbow during recovery. 

What Role Does Posture Play in Preventing and Treating Tennis Elbow?

Posture plays a significant role in both preventing and treating tennis elbow. Poor posture, especially during activities that involve arm and wrist use, can increase the strain on the muscles and tendons around the elbow. This strain can exacerbate existing symptoms or contribute to the development of tennis elbow. Practicing good posture, particularly during repetitive tasks or those that involve lifting, can help distribute the force more evenly across the muscle groups, reducing the load on the elbow.
