Tennis elbow

Tennis elbow (also known as lateral epicondylitis, lateral epicondylosis, or lateral elbow pain) is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender. Whether it is an inflammatory condition is disputed. It is an overuse injury commonly associated with tennis and other racquet sports, though it can occur from any type of over exertion and repetitive use, usually over a period of many years. A direct blow or sudden forceful extension can also cause it

The acute pain usually occurs as one fully extends the arm. Pain is mainly on the prominent bone on the outside of the elbow, though gripping, extension and lifting of the wrist can also hurt. The elbow can be stiff in the morning

The pain typically lasts for 6-12 weeks, but can range from 3 weeks to many years. Tennis elbow mostly occurs between the ages of 35 and 60

The first treatment should be rest. After some days, gentle and increasing stretching should be used, usually under the guidance of a health professional such as a physiotherapist. Cortisone should never be used – it may provide temporary relief, but seldom a cure
