So, What are Tennis Elbow Symptoms
Tennis Elbow symptoms sometimes can be difficult for even an experienced practitioner to diagnose.
There are many structures that can refer pain into the elbow area.
Over the years I have seen many patients who have been given a wrong diagnosis of Tennis Elbow.
Just because you have some or all of the following Tennis Elbow symptoms:
- pain on the outside of the elbow and possibly also down forearm
- pain made worse by using hand especially gripping tasks
- ‘weak’ wrist when shaking hands or turning a door handle
- outer elbow is painful to the touch
…………………it does not mean that you have Tennis Elbow.
The symptoms of Tennis elbow can be coming from
- the joints in your neck,
- the muscles around your neck or shoulder,
- a trapped nerve in your neck
- tension on a nerve in the shoulder or upper arm
- possible fracture or stress fracture around the elbow
- a loose body in the elbow joint
- arthritis within the elbow joint
Tennis Elbow / Lateral Epicondylitis / Lateral Epicondylosis
These are essentially all the same thing.
