Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is caused by inflammation of the muscles of the forearm that attach to the elbow. It's usually a result of inflammation of the extensor carpi radialis brevis tendon, often resulting from overuse. It doesn't always have to be caused by playing tennis.
Tennis elbow is traditionally treated with eccentric exercises that both lengthen and strengthen tissue around the injured area. Rose therapists are uniquely qualified to help design a personalized treatment program for you.
