Tennis elbow

(epicondylitis laterlis humeri)

These medicial conditions are included among the tendinopathies. Not only tennis players have these conditions, but are usually they are caused by repetitive or unusual operations and show themselves with pain on the outside of the elbow during activities with the hand.

Also the neck, the thoracic pine and the muscles in these areas can be a potential source for the pains of tennis- and golfer’s elbow. For physical therapy it is necessary to examine these areas and, if necessary, involve them into the treatment.
