Tennis elbow treatment STARTS WITH SPORTVISTM

What is tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)?

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition of the elbow caused by overuse. Tennis elbow is inflammation, or in some cases, micro-tearing of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow.

The forearm tendons become damaged from repeated motion. This leads to pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.

SportVisTM is a treatment option that not only provides pain relief from tennis elbow, but also works with your body to facilitate recovery, getting you back to your activities sooner.

Tennis elbow injury

The tendon that is usually injured is the ECRB. That is where you feel pain.

Tennis elbow symptoms

Pain is the main symptom associated with tennis elbow and is the reason those affected seek treatment. Other common signs and symptoms include:

  • Pain or burning on the outer part of the elbow
  • Pain at night (sometimes)
  • Weak grip strength
Tennis elbow pain begins mild in severity and worsens over weeks and months.

Tennis elbow treatment options

Treatments for tennis elbow include rest, applying ice, and over-the-counter pain relievers. Your doctor may also suggest physical therapy or using a brace.
