Tennis Elbow

Pain on the outside of the elbow when gripping, lifting objects or cocking the wrist back are the common presentations. Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is by far the most common elbow injury we see at the Rugby Osteopathic Centre. It is a Chronic Tendinopathy (CT) of the common extensor tendon of the wrist. It is caused by overuse or trauma and as with other CTs involves haphazard healing, loss of collagen matrix and infiltration of blood vessels into the tendon. Tennis elbow responds well to treatment.
