Tennis Elbow- Lateral Epicondylitis
Tennis Elbow is a pathology that affects the common tendon of the muscles of the forearm that attach to the outside of the elbow. It may be experienced by anyone who uses their arms, not just tennis players.
Tennis Elbow pain is charectrised by localised tenderness over the lateral elbow and may extend down the forearm. There is pain on the outside of the elbow with use, particularly when griping or using the arm when the hand is facing the ground, and lifting.
Treatment of Tennis Elbow involves icing, unloading the area with tapes or bracing, movement modification and a graduated exercise program to restore tendon health.
It is well worth contacting your health professional for a complete diagnosis and program, however below you will find a number of commonly used products to help you manage the problem.
