Cures For Tennis Elbow: Two Effective Treatments For Lateral Epicondylitis

Tennis elbow is a common condition that affects many athletes; you can also refer it to as lateral epicondylitis. Although the exact cause remains unknown, experts suggest that it occurs when the tendons experience shock, (the one that attaches the elbow joint to the forearm muscles). Tennis elbow usually occurs when the wrist extensors experience trauma.

Those people who have this condition normally feel a niggling pain just outside their elbow that worsens when they turn their hands or wrists to grab an object. When lifting objects, the person may feel a sharp pain spreading down the forearm.

Tennis elbow usually affects the dominant arm; people who are left handed will experience lateral epicondylitis on their left forearm. The same case applies for people who are right handed. Usually, it is not easy to identify the symptoms since they manifest slowly. Nevertheless, these are some cases where tennis elbow occurs abruptly without explanation. The condition usually affects people from between the ages of 35 and 65.

This condition is common to people who make the most out of their hands like sportsmen or manual laborers. Manual laborers lick construction workers, painters, gardeners and carpenters and more vulnerable to this condition since their work solely involves hand activities. The same case applies to athletes like basketball players, fencers, golfers and tennis players.

A person should seek medical attention immediately the symptoms become pronounced, doctors usually recommend x –ray procedure in order to diagnose the condition properly. By doing so, the doctor may notice raptures or inflammation in the tendons. The doctors can then determine the exact cause of the condition, whether it is lack of efficient oxygen distribution in the body or maybe the natural aging process.

You see, the diagnosis must be accurate in order to have the correct treatment. In fact, many doctors prefer using non-surgical procedures when dealing with tennis elbow. Many people opt to use non-surgical procedures in treating the condition since surgical procedure are quite expensive. Here are two natural cures for tennis elbow.

1. Heat packs /ice packs

You can apply heat packs on the affected every 3 hours for about 20 minutes to reduce pain and inflammation. You can also alternate this with ice packs to comfort the tendons along the joint area.

2. Zostrix

Repetitive stress causes tennis elbow; therefore, if you have the condition, the best way to cure it is through performing simple exercises. Here are some few tennis elbow exercises that you can try.

Forearm Flexor: Stretch both arms and place your palm upwards facing the sky, use the other hand to touch you palm and then push it down gently to form a 90-degree inclination between your arm and the palm. Perform this procedure as gently as possible without applying excessive pressure on the arm.

Wrist Exercises: To perform wrist exercises, hold a pair of dumbbells over your arm and bend your wrist up and down (both while your wrist is facing upwards and downwards).
