Causes of Tennis Elbow

Vida Spine Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is often caused by repetitive motions or overuse of the forearm muscles. Common causes include:

1. Overuse of Wrist Muscles

Engaging in activities that involve repetitive and forceful movements of the wrist, such as playing tennis, typing, painting, or using hand tools, can strain the tendons in the forearm, leading to tennis elbow.

2. Improper Technique

Incorrect form or technique during sports or physical activities can contribute to the development of tennis elbow. This includes improper grip and swing techniques in racquet sports.

3. Weak Shoulder Rotator Cuff Muscles

Weakness or imbalance in the shoulder rotator cuff muscles can increase the stress on the forearm tendons, making them more susceptible to injury and inflammation.

    Resting the affected arm and avoiding activities that aggravate the condition is essential for healing and preventing further strain on the tendons.

    Shockwave therapy utilizes high-energy sound waves to stimulate the healing process, reduce pain, and promote tissue repair in the affected area.

    Matrix therapy involves specialized techniques aimed at reducing pain, inflammation, and muscle tension, facilitating the healing process in tennis elbow.

    This technique involves inserting thin needles into specific trigger points to release muscle tension, improve blood flow, and alleviate pain associated with tennis elbow.

    MFR is a manual therapy technique that focuses on releasing tension and adhesions in the muscles and fascia, promoting pain relief and improved mobility.

    Strengthening the shoulder rotator cuff muscles with Theraband exercises can help improve shoulder stability, reduce strain on the forearm tendons, and aid in the recovery process.
