Tennis Elbow Golfers Elbow - Extra Corporeal Shockwave Treatment

Tennis Elbow – Lateral Epicondylitis

TENNIS ELBOW – occurs when there is excessive use of the muscles of the back of the forearm, causing pain, tenderness, weakness, numbness and tingling of fingers. The pain is usually found on the outer aspect (lateral) of the elbow whereas the pain associated with Golfers elbow or medial epicondylitis  affects tendons connected to the inner aspect  (medial side) of the elbow.

Tennis elbow can develop suddenly or gradually and is usually exacerbated with certain repetitive movements  eg, playing tennis, squash, occupations that involve hammering typing, painting, also associated with any gripping or wringing actions. This eventually leads to strain on the muscles and puts stress on the tendons causing inflammation and micro tears in the tissue.
