Elbow Conditions

Tennis Elbow

Lateral epicondylitis (also called tennis elbow) is a condition caused by overuse of the lateral, or outside, muscles found in the forearm. This causes the inflammation and irritation to the tendons after repetitive and prolonged use with activities that involve gripping, twisting, or carrying objects. Due to the repetitive nature of their occupations, professions like carpenters, cooks, plumbers, and painters are prone to getting Tennis Elbow.

Common symptoms include:

  • pain into the forearm and wrist
  • difficulty gripping and noted weakness in the lower arm and hand
  • stiffness in the elbow
  • increased pain when performing daily activities

At Apex, a therapist will work with you to develop an individualized plan to help you return to your previous activities.
