Tennis Elbow

Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow as it is also known, is an inflammatory condition in which the tendons in your elbow are overstretched by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm.
Even though it’s called tennis elbow, it doesn’t only affect athletes. The types of motions that can cause tennis elbow include those performed by plumbers, painters, carpenters, and butchers.
In tennis elbow, the pain is felt mostly at the point where the forearm muscles attach to the bone on the outside of the elbow. You may also feel pain in your forearm and wrist.

The symptoms of tennis elbow appear gradually. Most of the time, the pain is mild at first and slowly worsens over weeks and months. Generally, no specific injuries are involved when symptoms first develop.Tennis elbow is characterized by signs and symptoms such as:

  • The outer part of your elbow is hurting or burning
  • You are having trouble gripping things
  • Sometimes you experience pain at night

Forearm activity such as holding a racquet, turning a wrench, or shaking hands can worsen the symptoms. Usually, your dominant arm is affected; however, both arms can be affected.

Tennis elbow is the result of overuse and muscle strain. It is caused by repeated contractions of the forearm muscles that you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. During repeated motions, the tendons that connect the forearm muscles to the bony prominence outside your elbow may develop a series of tiny tears.

The name “tennis elbow” implies that playing tennis – and especially the backhand stroke repetitively with poor technique – causes the condition. But there are many other common arm motions that can cause tennis elbow, including:

  • Using hand tools
  • Repetitive computer mouse use
  • Painting
  • Driving screws
  • Food preparation, such as cutting

There are several factors that may increase your risk of tennis elbow:

  • Tennis elbow can affect people of any age, but most often it affects those aged 30 to 50.
  • Tennis elbow is more common in people who have jobs that involve repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. Plumbers, painters, carpenters, butchers, and cooks are examples.
  • You are at a higher risk of developing tennis elbow if you play racket sports, especially if you practice poor stroke technique.

Treatment For Tennis Elbow

Acousana therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive approach to treating mild to severe tennis elbow with success rates over 86%.

Acousana utilizes patented SoftWave® technology to stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing blood flow by up to 300%, quickly reducing inflammation and therefore, getting rid of the pain associated with the condition.

Acousana therapy uses patented electrohydraulic SoftWaves® that are delivered through the skin using ultrasound gel. The SoftWaves trigger a natural biological response which initiates a healing process by increasing blood flow and improving circulation.

The SoftWaves “fool” the body into thinking that “damage” has occurred, when in reality, no damage has taken place. This response initiates your body’s natural self-repair process by reducing inflammation and thereby eliminating pain.

Rubber Band Finger Stretch

Your hand should be cupped a little as you wrap a rubber band around your thumb and fingers. Separate your thumbs and fingers, then bring them back together. You will repeat this 10 times for three sets. Repeat this exercise one or two times daily.

Grip

Two or three times a day, hold a soft object (such as a small rubber ball) in your hand and squeeze it continuously for 10 to 15 minutes. Do this 2-3 times a day.

Downward Wrist Stretch

Extend your arm straight out in front of you, with your palm facing up and away from you, and with the other hand, slowly apply pressure to the fingers on the outstretched hand in a downward motion. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds, then release. Repeat two or three times. Do this exercise two or three times a day.

Wrist Curl (Palm Up, Palm Down)

Lay your forearm on a table with the wrist extended past the edge of the table. Begin with the palm facing up and place a light weight in your hand. Rotate your wrist up and then slowly back down below the plane of the table. You should perform this stretch slowly and feel the muscles stretching within your forearm. Repeat this stretch with the palm facing down. This should be performed 10 times for 3 sets.
