This is a condition that involves inflammation of the lateral epicondyle on the outer side of the elbow. It is a tendonitis of the wrist extensor muscles.
It can be caused by excessive or repeated use of the muscles that raise the hand and wrist. It is often caused by racket sports, painting, carrying heavy items, typing, using scissors or shears. In many cases it is also linked with a problem in the cervical spine.
It is usually characterised by a localised pain on the outside of the elbow that is made worse by gripping, making a fist or lifting a heavy object.
Treatment may involve
∙ stretching exercises
∙ manual therapy to local area and to cervical/thoracic spine
∙ electrotherapy such as laser and ultrasound
∙ advice on home management.
