Tennis Elbow

If you’ve been suffering from elbow, forearm or wrist discomfort, read on for information about  causes and treatments.

Is your wrist feeling weak? Do you have a burning sensation in your upper forearm? If so, you might be suffering from Tennis Elbow. Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis) is most commonly a form of overuse tendonitis that can plague the tendon attached to the “outside bump” of the elbow, radiating pain through the forearm, elbow and sometimes into the wrist and hand.

Common causes include:

  • Degenerative Arthritis
  • Repetitive motion
  • Stress & overuse

 Symptoms include:

  • Persistent, burning pain in the upper forearm
  • Inflammation
  • Numbness and weakness that limits mobility, especially with activity
  • Increased sensitivity to pressure with wrist movement such as, handshaking, griping or typing on a keyboard.
