Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow may also be referred to as lateral epicondylitis or lateral epicondalgia.  Pain is felt at the outside of the elbow, where the wrist extensor muscles are attached to the elbow by one small tendon.  It is usually the result of repetitive work or sports activities which involve gripping hard or holding your wrist and hand in a cocked position for prolonged periods of time e.g playing tennis or using a keyboard.  However, pain at the outside of the elbow can also be associated with nerve irritation originating from the neck.  At BP Physio we will assess your neck and upper limb muscle balance to ensure that we identify the primary cause of your elbow pain to get the best possible result in managing the symptoms.
