What is Tennis Elbow?

Description of the condition

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a condition characterized by inflammation of the tendons and muscles on the outside of the elbow joint. It is a common condition that can lead to pain and limited movement in the elbow area.


  • Lateral epicondylitis - affects the outer part of the elbow
  • Medial epicondylitis - affects the inner part of the elbow


  • Pain when gripping or extending the arm
  • Weakening of the arm
  • Limitation of movement in the elbow


Tennis elbow is often caused by repetitive hand and wrist movements, such as playing tennis or golf, or lifting weights. The risk of developing this condition also increases with age.


To diagnose tennis elbow, a doctor may perform a physical examination, X-rays, or an MRI.


Treatment may include the use of anti-inflammatory medications, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and in some cases, surgical intervention.


To prevent tennis elbow, it is important to avoid monotonous repetitive movements and to properly distribute the load on the hands and wrists.


If tennis elbow is suspected, it is advisable to consult an orthopedist or traumatologist.
