Tennis Elbow/Golfer’s Elbow

Pain that presents on the outside of the elbow or extending down the forearm is referred to as Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylosis). When it occurs inside, or medially, it is Golfer’s Elbow (medial epicondylosis).

In acute cases, the typical cause relates to damaged muscle tissue relating to overuse, abnormal tendon loading and/or poor biomechanics.

Chronic cases are due to degenerative muscle changes. Previous they were thought to involve inflammation, but this has now been ruled out and, therefore, is no longer technically referred to as tendinitis.

Elbow pain may often be related to a neck (cervical spine) injury. Therefore, a proper assessment by a physiotherapist is recommended. Physicentrix can also help you determine if any dietary, lifestyle, training issue or otherwise may be additional factors to consider in managing your rehabilitation.
