Tennis elbow is a term used for inflammation of the elbow caused by the overuse of the muscles of the forearm. Tennis elbow can be a painful condition involving the tendons that attach to the bone on the outside of the elbow.
Tennis players are commonly associated with this however the problem can occur with many different types of activities, sports and can also be work related.
A sudden extreme action, force or direct blow to the elbow may result in swelling of the tendon that can lead to inflammation and pain. With activity the pain may spread to the forearm and to the hand.
Osteopathic care has been found to be successful at treating tennis elbow with direct cervical spine manipulation. Short term relief can be gained with low level laser therapy directed at specific doses and wavelengths to the medial elbow tendon insertions.
