You don’t have to be a tennis player to get tennis elbow. The condition commonly referred to as tennis elbow is caused by over-use of the elbow and surrounding muscles and tendons.

People who have jobs, hobbies, or participate in athletics (like tennis) which require repetitive movement of the arm, elbow, wrist and hand are most likely to develop tennis elbow. Tennis elbow can affect either arm.

Symptoms include:

  • Slowly developing pain in the elbow area
  • Increased pain with gripping and lifting

Your physician will diagnose your pain as tennis elbow based on history and physical exam.

Tennis elbow can be treated successfully through the following treatment options:

  • Over the counter or prescription pain medications
  • Physical Therapy
  • Bracing and resting the forearm
  • Topical gels or creams
