The term “tennis elbow” is widely used although informalbut the condition should be understood as not limited to tennis players. Archived copy as title Infobox medical condition new RTT.

Moderate evidence exists demonstrating that joint manipulation directed at the elbow and wrist and spinal manipulation directed at the cervical and thoracic spinal regions results in clinical changes to pain and function. Low level laser therapy, administered at specific doses and wavelengths directly to the lateral elbow tendon insertions, may result in short-term pain relief and less disability.


The muscle involves the extension of the little finger and some extension of the wrist allowing for adaption to “snap” or flick the wrist—usually associated with a racquet swing.

Evidence for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis before was poor. Histologic studies have demonstrated that this condition is the result of tendon degeneration, which replaces normal tissue with a disorganized arrangement of collagen.

Other speculative risk factors for lateral epicondylitis include taking up tennis later in life, unaccustomed strenuous activity, decreased mental chronometry and speed and repetitive eccentric contraction of muscle controlled lengthening of a muscle group. In all groups, there was a significantly lower pain VAS at the 3-week and 6-month follow-ups comparing to the pre-treatment condition.

Tratamiento con ondas de choque: National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. Evidence is poor for long term improvement from injections of any type, whether corticosteroidsbotulinum toxinprolotherapy or other epicondilitiss.

Less than 1 to 2 years [3]. Tennis elbow left untreated can lead to chronic pain that degrades quality of daily living. Wrist extensor orthosis maintains the wrist in the slight extension.

It is due to excessive use of the muscles of the back of the forearm. Orthotics are useful therapeutic interventions for initial therapy of tennis elbow. This orthosis usually has a strap which applies a binding force over the origin of the wrist extensors.

Retrieved 21 June In racquet sports like tennis, improper stroke technique and improper equipment may be risk factors. The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.

No practicar deportes, especialmente tenis, hasta que el dolor haya desaparecido. However, an opposite, but not statistically significant, trend is observed for the recurrence of previous cases, with an increasingly higher rate as ability level decreases.

Painful and tender outer part of the elbow [1]. The rest lets stress and tightness within the forearm slowly relax and eventually have the arm in working condition—in a day or two, depending on the case.

Based on symptoms with medical imaging used to rule out other potential causes [2]. Where lateral epicondylitis is caused by playing tennis, another factor of tennis elbow injury is experience and ability. There are two main types of orthoses prescribed for this problem: Although not yet conclusive, the short-term analgesic effect of manipulation techniques may allow more vigorous stretching and strengthening exercises, resulting in a better and faster recovery process of the affected tendon in lateral epicondylitis.
