How To Get Rid Of Tennis Elbow Pain

Lateral epicondylitis, commonly referred to as Tennis Elbow, occurs when there is inflammation or irritation at the wrist extensor tendon insertion at the outside (or lateral) elbow. A group of muscles that function to extend the wrist, insert at the lateral epicondyle. Due to the focal point of this tendon insertion there may be irritation and pain here from overuse. It is not uncommon to have an unknown cause of injury with tennis elbow.

In the videos below we discuss what tennis elbow is and how to treat it. This is a condition that can be treated by a physical therapist to get the person back to full function. A physical therapist can identify the specific structures that are impaired, ruling out other potential diagnoses and red flags and ensure that the person recovers fully in an efficient and safe manner. Treatment may consist of ice for pain relief, strengthening of the muscles affected, stretching, and education for activity modification to ensure proper tissue healing.
