Tennis elbow, LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS, is a very common form of pain that limits elbow activity and affects approximately 3% of the population.
Repeatedly exerting force on the wrist or forearm in daily life or at work will cause the pressure on the tendon to exceed the upper limit of usage, causing degeneration, inflammation and pain in the tendon tissue and tendon fascia that attach to the external elbow.
While gripping and lifting heavy objects, pain and pressure are formed in the forearm and the hand. The pain actually stems from the fascia of the wrist muscles.
High risk profile
Patients are usually around 50 years old who uses his wrist hard.
Doctors often recommend tennis elbow patients to physiotherapy, ultrasound or shock therapy, together with prescribing anti-inflammatory drugs. The use of orthopedic stents, such as elbow straps or stents, can also reduce muscle tension in the forearm.
