      What is Tennis Elbow?

      The tendons in your elbow can get overworked - usually by repetitive motion using your arm and wrist – resulting in the painful joint condition commonly known as “tennis elbow.” Of course, tennis players aren't the only ones who can develop Tennis Elbow. Learn more about Tennis Elbow and the best treatment options by reaching out to our Waldorf MD location.

      Causes of Tennis Elbow

      Tennis Elbow is caused by several different types of activities – usually sports, work, and everyday life – that involve repetitive movement, including:

      • Work-related injuries or strain that results from repetitive motion or gripping – over an extended period of time - oftentimes experienced by carpenters, painters, landscapers, and people who work on computers or keyboards daily
      • Athletic activities like tennis, fencing, racquetball, or squash
      • Strength training, especially activities that require pushing or pulling with force or load, like push-ups and bench pressing
      • Life activities ranging from cleaning a home, playing video games or musical instruments to something as sedentary as knitting or sewing

      These repetitive motions can put stress on your tendons and strain muscles, and over time, may lead to microscopic tears in tissue.

      Sudden arm or elbow injury can also sometimes cause Tennis Elbow. Even more rarely, people can develop the condition for no known reason, which is diagnosed as Idiopathic Tennis Elbow.

      Symptoms of Tennis Elbow

      Pain is the most common symptom. The pain of Tennis Elbow tends to occur where the tendons in your forearm muscles meet the outside of your elbow. It can spread from that bony knob into your forearm and wrist. People can not only experience weakness or pain while engaging in sports or work-related activities, but also activities as simple as lifting a cup of tea, shaking someone’s hand, or turning a doorknob.

      Elbow function is involved in so much of our daily function, and there are a wide range of symptoms that could signal the development of the Tennis Elbow. While pain and weakness are the two primary symptoms, other symptoms may include:

      • Swollen elbow joint that is tender to the touch
      • A burning sensation or pain in your outer elbow that radiates to your wrist
      • Pain when twisting or bending your arm (e.g., opening a jar)
      • A problematic grip when you are trying to hold something – anything from a tennis racquet to a pen or someone’s hand
      • A specific stiffness or pain that occurs when extending your arm
      • Symptoms that worsen at night

      Diagnosing Tennis Elbow

      Our first step is to take a medical history, which will include questions about any activities that may have led to your condition. We then perform a physical exam to check for pain, swelling, or stiffness in your elbow joint. Ultrasound is our preferred imaging test for diagnosis, and having it done the same day as your first visit helps us start your treatment plan immediately.

      Which Tennis Elbow treatment option is right for me?

      After the ultrasound exam, we typically offer activity modification, physical therapy, and exercises to improve body awareness and mechanics. We also utilize Dry Needling and Trigger Point Injections when necessary. If these methods do not help, we may try other methods, like PRP.

      At the Center for Sports & Regenerative Orthopedics in Waldorf MD, we prioritize our patients’ preferences. Many of our treatment methods have an excellent track record and have brought impressive results for our patients in the Alexandria VA area. The choice is yours. We see athletes who want the problem solved immediately, and we move right into the more in-depth techniques like PRP – aiming for fast results. Other patients who are in less of a hurry to fast-track treatment can take treatment steps one at a time to see what works.
