Tennis Elbow

Lateral Epicondylitis also known as Tennis Elbow.  Extensor Capri Radialis Brevis is the muscle involved in this condition, which causes wrist extension.  Lateral Epicondylitis can occur in other recreational activities that involve repetitive stress on the muscles around the elbow.  There is degeneration or inflammation of the tendon’s attachment, placing greater stress on the area.  Activities like lifting, gripping, and grasping will cause pain.

Physical Therapy can help with pain relief and improve strength and ROM.

Immobilizing (bracing)
