Tennis Elbow
Physiotherapy, Hand Therapy and Deep Tissue Release Singapore

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp 96402670

Tennis Elbow (medically known as lateral epicondylitis) is a common elbow pain faced by many people. Its main characteristic is pain over the outer side of the elbow (as opposed to the inner part of elbow of Golfer's Elbow), that can travel or radiate down the forearm. Also, despite the name, this condition does not only affect tennis players or professionals.

In fact, Tennis Elbow is so common it affects about 3% of the population, and is often caused by work-related activities (though yes, people who play racquet games and sports are prone to this condition but only in 5% of the group). Both men and women aged 30 - 50 years suffer from it.

It starts as swelling, inflammation and pain at the outer part of the elbow and forearm, just above the elbow joint. The activities that cause it are similar to the activities that also cause Golfer's Elbow, which are prolonged gripping activities e.g. weight lifting, musical instruments, digging, driving, hammering and racquet games. If the patient disregard the pain and inflammation, this may become a chronic tendon problem with persistent pain and degeneration as well as weakness of the elbow and tendon.

This condition is relatively straightforward to diagnose and treat - patient presents with pain in the outer part of the elbow (the lateral epicondyle) when it is palpated or touched, and when the elbow is straightened and/or wrist is extended. The pain is aggravated with gripping-related activities, and gets worse if it is prolonged.

During the initial, more acute stage, we will start you on pain relief approaches such as Cold Therapy and Electrotherapy to decrease the inflammation and provide pain relief. Then we will reinforce patient to rest the injured part, but if the patient prefers to, we can fabricate a splint that will ease the pain and still allow the patient to continue their daily activities and work.

Once the acute stage is over, we will start more active hand therapy and/or physiotherapy interventions - active range of motion exercises, resistive Exercise and Movement therapy, ultrasound to accelerate healing, and activity modification to prevent Tennis Elbow from recurring.
