Tennis And Golf Elbow


Focused Pain Relief

"Tennis Elbow" is a bit of a misnomer as it isn't always caused by tennis, and it does not only affect athletes.

Many people get “tennis elbow” from activities that require repetitive and vigorous use of the forearm muscle. 

It is the overuse of the muscle that causes this painful condition.

Painters, plumbers, and carpenters are particularly prone to developing tennis elbow. Studies have shown that auto workers, cooks, and even butchers get tennis elbow more often than the rest of the population. It is thought that the repetition and weight lifting required in these occupations leads to injury.

"Golfers elbow" is very similar symptomatically and is treated in the same way. 

In most cases, the pain begins as mild and slowly worsens over weeks and months. There is usually no specific moment in which the elbow was injured that is associated with the onset of symptoms.

Common symptom complaints include pain or burning on the outer part of your elbow, and reduced grip strength. The symptoms are often worsened with forearm activity, such as holding a racquet, turning a wrench, or shaking hands. Your dominant arm is most often affected; but sometimes both arms are affected.
