Click to View Products for Lateral Epicondylitis
 
Epicondylitis is a repetitive motion injury which causes inflammation and or small tears in the tendons attached to the condyles of the humerus.

Lateral epicondylitis, more commonly known as tennis elbow, is the result of repeated contraction of the muscles used to extend (straighten) the arm and raise the hand. Pain typically occurs on the outside of the elbow.

Symptoms include:
  • A weak grip.
  • Elbow pain that radiates from the outside of the elbow to the wrist.
  • Tenderness when touching or bumping the outer side of the elbow.
Treatment:
Non-surgical
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen, Motrin, Naprosyn and Celebrex may be used to decrease elbow pain. Be sure to talk to your doctor before starting these medications.
  • Cold therapy to stimulate blood flow and relieve the elbow pain associated with inflammation. Cold therapy should be applied several times over the course of the day.
  • Cortisone injection into the tendon sheath.
  • A tennis elbow brace to minimize stress on the effected tendons.
  • Rehabilitation to stretch and strengthen the muscles.
  • Rest.
Surgical treatment

Surgery is rarely used to treat epicondylitis.
  • Surgery entails either trimming the inflamed tendon, or surgically releasing and then reattaching the tendon to relieve pain.
