About the disease

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a type of swelling of the arm that causes pain. Tennis elbow is in fact a type of tendonitis, which affects an elbow only. In this case, a tendon of the elbow is affected. Tendons are responsible for connecting muscles to the bones. They consist of tough tissue and are also responsible for the arms mobility. Most commonly, tennis elbow develops if there have been repetitive motions of an arm, such as repetitive gripping and thumb with two fingers were continuously involved in the activity. Tennis elbow does not develop only in people who professionally play tennis. It can also develop in people whose profession requires manual gripping  of objects with their thumbs and fingers.

Most commonly, tennis elbow develops in middle-aged people who are reaching the age of 40. Overall, tennis elbow develops if there has been too much pressure on the elbow and tendons which connect muscles to the bones were put under stress. As a result, there can be small tears in the tendons, which are the cause of pain and inflammation. According to WebMD, tennis elbow is the most common cause of chronic elbow pain, which is a prove that this condition is not caused by playing  tennis entirely. Weight lifting or painting, for example, can be the causes of tennis elbow. Even such regular activities as typing or knitting can cause development of tennis elbow, when a person becomes older.

Symptoms

  • Pain in the elbow
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Restricted mobility of the elbow
  • Tugging pain when an elbow is under pressure for a continuous period of time
  • Pain can radiate either up or down the arm
  • Bony knob on the surface of the elbow is the most painful part of an arm

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination, a doctor will examine the elbow to determine if there is redness and swelling. Doctor will then inquire about job of a person to determine if tennis elbow could be associated with a professional activity of a person. Doctor will ask to lift and shake the hands and also to grip something firmly to determine if any of these motions make the pain in the elbow worse.
  • Imaging tests are used to confirm the diagnosis sometimes. They are used to determine if there are microtears in the tendons of the elbow, which could have been causing pain and swelling in the elbow.

Treatment

  • Conservative treatment includes icing of the affected elbow and also prescription of anti-inflammatory drugs which are usually non-steroidal. Also, a person may be prescribed physical therapy to boost the flexibility of the elbow and to reduce the stiffness. In some cases, a person needs to elbow strap to provide the elbow support and prevent straining.
  • Surgical treatment is a highly effective way to treat tennis elbow, with almost 90% of all surgeries being successful. Surgeon removes the affected part of the tendon where tearing or any other damage has developed and then repairs the remaining part of the tendon.
