Tennis Elbow Surgery
Knoxville’s Best Choice for Tennis Elbow Surgery in Eastern Tennessee
Tennis Elbow Surgery
Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is an overuse injury of the tendons in the elbow caused by repetitive motions in the wrist and arm. Tennis elbow can be caused by activities other than playing tennis. It is especially common in people whose jobs require them to do repetitive movements of the arm, such as plumbers, painters, and carpenters.
TENNIS ELBOW TREATMENT
Tennis elbow often goes away on its own with rest and OTC pain medications such as ibuprofen. Learning to perform your daily activities with proper form can help ward off occurrences of tennis elbow in the future.
If at-home care doesn’t provide enough relief, your doctor may recommend tennis elbow exercises or that you wear a brace for tennis elbow during your healing process.
TENNIS ELBOW EXERCISES
Exercises for tennis elbow tend to focus on increasing strength in the forearm and wrist, which increases your grip strength.
TENNIS ELBOW BRACE
– A tennis elbow brace puts mild pressure on the irritating area, which reduces pain. A brace alone will not cure tennis elbow, but it can make the healing process less painful.
