How Can I Take Care of My Tennis Elbow?

How Can I Take Care of My Tennis Elbow?

“Tennis elbow” or lateral epicondylitis

Tennis elbow is a muscle strain injury that occurs when the tendons of your elbow are overloaded, commonly by overuse of repetitive arm and wrist motions.

The term may indicate that it is common in athletes, however, it occurs in non-athletes frequently. Jobs that feature motions that can frequently lead to this painful condition are repetitive computer mouse uses, painting, plumbing, and cooking.

Are you at Risk?

People between the ages group 30-50 are more likely to develop tennis elbow

Racket sports put you at high risk to develop tennis elbow due to your stroke techniques 

Symptoms

  • The pain radiates from the outside of the elbow into the forearm and your wrist.
  • The pain increases while lifting an object, twisting the doorknob, and holding cans or coffee mugs. 
  • In a few cases, a handshake can become a task for the patient.

Diagnosis

Physical examination at a doctor’s clinic and in some cases, X-rays are enough to diagnose the condition

Therapy

Typically, ice packs and NSAIDs are used to give relief, or the use of braces is advised to reduce the stress on the injured tissues.

But another effective therapy to consider is Homeopathy. Natural and safe, homeopathic treatments include deep-acting tissue remedies and have no side effects on the body. Unlike the conventional mode of medicine, homeopathic medicine can be taken for a long time.

Rhus tox, Ruta, and Calcarea carb are a few effective remedies for tennis elbow, complementing gradual muscle stretching and strengthening exercises.
