Tennis elbow is a condition which results from straining in forearm’s tendons which then become inflamed. Any activity which requires you to twist and grip with your forearm causes this kind of strain and actually, the majority of cases have nothing to do with tennis or any other sporting activity. Physiotherapy for tennis elbow is one of the best ways of ensuring a rapid recovery from this condition.
Symptoms Of Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow has many symptoms including:
- Discomfort when moving the arm
- Tenderness to the outer elbow when it is touched
- Swelling on the outer elbow
- Pain in the forearm
- Additional pain on moving the wrist in a repetitive action
- Pain when carrying weight
Traditional Treatment For Tennis Elbow
The traditional treatment for tennis elbow includes taking anti-inflammatory and painkilling medications to help reduce swelling and pain. An anti-inflammatory cream applied to the area may often be recommended. For severe cases which do not subside within a couple of weeks, steroid injections to the site may be advised together with a period of rest for the elbow.
