Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a painful condition that occurs when the tendons in the arm have been injured, usually due to repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. Tennis elbow is caused by repeated contraction of the forearm muscles, the ones you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. This repeated motion causes stress to the tissue that results in minute tears of the tendons attaching the forearm muscles to the bones on the outside of the elbow. Tennis elbow can be extremely painful and make it difficult to even grab or pick things up.

This type of injury received the name of tennis elbow because gripping the racket and repetitively swinging the arm, especially if you have poor stroke techniques, can cause this injury. There are numerous other repetitive motions that can also cause tennis elbow that have nothing to do with tennis, such as using screw drivers, painting, using a computer mouse, and chopping foods.

Resting the arm and hand, and using over-the-counter pain and inflammation medications can often help milder cases of tennis elbow. More severe cases of tennis elbow can cause radiating pain and weakness that interfere with your ability to use your hand and arm. If your mobility is being impacted, and you cannot use your arm or hand without pain, it is time to seek help from pain experts, such as Pain Stop Clinics.

Many doctors will recommend invasive and extremely expensive procedures to resolve tennis elbow. Pain Stop Clinics uses a much more conservative approach that has great success in resolving tennis elbow pain and helps to prevent reoccurrence. Constant joint pain can prevent you from doing necessary tasks and what you love, impacting both your work and your personal life. Pain Stop Clinics is committed to stopping that joint pain with minimally invasive and opioid-free treatments that reduce pain, strengthen the muscles, and increase your mobility.
