What is Tennis Elbow?

Also referred to as lateral epicondylitis, tennis elbow results from repetitive strain on the tendons that connect the forearm muscles to the outside of the elbow. And as you may have guessed, tennis players and other racquet sport athletes are particularly vulnerable to tennis elbow, along with auto mechanics, plumbers, contractors, painters, and other individuals who frequently perform upper body movements.

The most common sign of tennis elbow is pain or burning sensations around the elbow that may travel to the forearm or wrist. This can lead to joint weakness and discomfort when performing many basic actions, such as:

  • Gripping a rail
  • Turning a doorknob
  • Shaking hands
  • Holding a drink

What Does Tennis Elbow Treatment Involve?

Tennis elbow treatment typically involves self-care measures such a periodic rest and taking over-the-counter medications to help reduce inflammation. If symptoms persist, physical therapy may be recommended to strengthen forearm muscles and promote healing. Other common tennis elbow treatment approaches include anti-inflammatory injections, bracing, and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Rarely, surgery may be recommended to remove damaged tissues and reattach healthy muscles to bone.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
