The Truth About Tennis Elbow (WHAT REALLY CAUSES IT!)
Tennis elbow is definitely one of the most common orthopedic sources of pain that can crush your ability to effectively workout let alone get through your day. The problem with tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis as it is more formerly known, is that the cure and treatment for it are often misguided. In this video, I show you the real cause of tennis elbow and where you should be looking if you want to learn how to fix it once and for all.

The first thing you have to realize is that the cause of pain is very seldom coming from the actual place that you are hurting! In the case of tennis elbow, the source of your symptoms is almost always going to be somewhere other than in your elbow. Just like in the knee, the elbow is a hinge joint with very little motion. Its function is dictated by the biomechanics available in the more mobile joints above and below it (the shoulder and wrist in this case).

What Is Tennis Elbow???

Tennis elbow is a form of elbow tendonitis. This is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overworked and inflamed. This is caused by repetitive motions of the hand and arm.

Despite the name, tennis elbow can occur in people who don’t play tennis (even though it is a common injury among tennis players). People who do a lot of repetitive motions, either through working out in the gym or doing physically demanding labor work, often get tennis elbow (i.e. mechanics, carpenters, painters, butchers, plumbers, etc.)

The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist.

Medial Epicondylitis, also known as “Golfer’s Elbow” is a condition where micro-tears occur in either the musculotendinous junction (muscle to tendon attachment) or tenoperiosteal junction (tendon to bone attachment) of the flexor muscles, resulting in pain and inflammation of the affected tendons.
Common treatment practices include long-term rest, over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications or cortisone injections, but all of these treat the symptoms, not the actual condition.
By performing a simple massage, stretch and exercise routine, you can eliminate Golfer’s Elbow in a few, short weeks.
