Tennis elbow

Epitrochlear bursitis; Lateral epicondylitis; Epicondylitis - lateral

Last reviewed: August 11, 2012.

Tennis elbow is soreness or pain on the outside (lateral) side of the upper arm near the elbow.

1689.jpg

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

The part of the muscle that attaches to a bone is called a tendon. Some of the muscles in your forearm attach to the bone on the outside of your elbow.

When you use these muscles over and over again, small tears develop in the tendon. Over time, this leads to irritation and pain where the tendon is attached to the bone.

This injury is common in people who play a lot of tennis or other racquet sports, hence the name "tennis elbow." Backhand is the most common stroke to cause symptoms.

However, any activity that involves repetitive twisting of the wrist (like using a screwdriver) can lead to this condition. Therefore, painters, plumbers, construction workers, cooks, and butchers are all more likely to develop tennis elbow.

This condition may also be due to constant computer keyboard and mouse use.


Symptoms





  • Elbow pain that gradually worsens



  • Pain radiating from the outside of the elbow to the forearm and back of the hand when grasping or twisting


  • Weak grasp


Signs and tests

Your doctor or nurse will examine you. The exam may show:







  • Pain or tenderness when the tendon is gently pressed near where it attaches to the upper arm bone, over the outside of the elbow.



  • Pain near the elbow when the wrist is bent backwards.


X-rays may be done.

Treatment

The first step is to rest your arm and avoid the activity that causes your symptoms for at least 2 - 3 weeks. You may also want to:







  • Put ice on the outside of your elbow 2 - 3 times a day.



  • Take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen, naproxen, or aspirin).


If your tennis elbow is due to sports activity, you may want to:




  • Ask about any changes you can make in your technique.


  • Check any sports equipment you are using to see if any changes may help. If you play tennis, changing your grip size of the racket may help.


  • Think about how often you have been playing and whether you should cut back.


If your symptoms are related to working on a computer, ask your manager about making changes to your work station or have someone look at how you chair, desk, and computer are set up.

An occupational therapist can show you exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles of your forearm.

You can buy a special brace for tennis elbow at most drug stores. It wraps around the upper part of your forearm and takes some of the pressure off the muscles.

Your doctor may also inject cortisone and a numbing medicine around the area where the tendon attaches to the bone. This may help decrease the swelling and pain.

If the pain continues after 6 - 12 months of rest and treatment, surgery may be recommended. Talk with your orthopedic surgeon about the risks, and whether surgery might help.

Expectations (prognosis)

Elbow pain may get better without surgery. However, most people who have surgery have full use of their elbow forearm afterwards.

What types of diseases do chiropractors treat?


What Conditions do Chiropractors Treat? Posted in About Chiropractic, Conditions, Featured Articles
conditions-chiropractors-treat-254325_200x200.jpg


Chiropractors commonly treat a wide variety of conditions and injuries. Most chiropractic patients understand that chiropractors can relieve pain, and regular chiropractic care will prevent pain, further injuries, and may stop or reverse many conditions.
Millions of people suffer from back, neck, extremity (arms, legs) and other musculoskeletal pain, which are all effectively relieved by chiropractic care, without the need for medication.
Musculoskeletal Conditions Chiropractors are trained to identify and make referrals for conditions that should be treated by medical specialists, if need be. Common extremity complaints may include tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee and ankle pain, and sports injuries.
Conditions & Diseases In addition to back and neck pain, chiropractic is also very effective for treating medical conditions for people of all ages including babies and the elderly. Conditions such as allergies or chronic ear infections in children, are successfully treated by chiropractic.
Many conditions are caused by subluxations (misalignments of spinal bones), which irritate or aggravate the nerves resulting in diseases or conditions. Chiropractic care can provide partial or full relief to many of these conditions:
Injuries Many common injuries can also be effectively treated by chiropractic care. The most common injuries are automobile accidents, where the symptoms can be delayed by weeks or even months after the accident. Auto insurance often covers these injuries.
Work place injuries including falls, lifting injuries, and others are also treatable by chiropractic. Many work places offer insurance to cover these types of injuries.
Chiropractic works well with sport injuries, and chiropractors can often improve performance. Some common injuries treated by chiropractors include:
  • Auto accidents
  • Chronic injuries
  • Falling injuries
  • Lifting injuries
  • Sport injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Work-related injuries
Please talk to your chiropractor for more information on how chiropractic care can help your specific pain, condition, or injury. Many conditions are treatable naturally without the need for surgery or medication. Everyone deserves good health and a healthy nervous system!

Can you buy tennis rackets for children?


Yes you can buy tennis rackets for kids and it's really important if you want your kids to get a sense of what playing tennis really is and regular size rackets will be much too big for them.
Go to a good sports shop and they will advise you what kind of size is suitable for your kids.

Can I program my microsoft ergonomic keyboard with a hibernate shut off / turn back on key?


Which MS ergonomic keyboard?

Hibernate is well, is something I make sure NEVER comes on or would ever use - just not efficient.

But, it does depend on which MS ergonomic keyboard you have, and what software we can get with it to program it.
