Elbow pain (Tennis or Golfer)


With breakthrough technology in Malaysia, we provide non-invasive and effective Elbow treatment.

Tennis Elbow also known as Lateral epicondylitis is a painful condition involving the tendons that attached to the outside part of the elbow typically caused by repetitive movement and overuse of the muscles.

Not surprisingly, playing tennis, other racquet sports or activity involving use of the elbow can cause this condition.  It is a repetitive strain injury of a specific forearm muscle.

People with this condition may not be aware they have it until the pain and swelling manifests.  Pain is located on the outside of the elbow, over the bone region in which known as the lateral epicondyle.  The pain is normally aggravated further with activity that stress on the tendon such as gripping or lifting.  With activity, the pain usually starts at the elbow and may travel down the forearm and the hand.

 

Golfer’s Elbow is also known as Medial epicondylitis.  It is characterized by pain from elbow to the wrist on the inside (medial side) of the elbow   It is typically caused by excessive force used to bend the hand toward the palm during swinging a golf club or pitching a baseball.  You still can get it the pain even if you’re not a golfer or baseball player. Other causes include weak wrist muscles, carrying heavy suitcase and frequent use of other hand tools on continuous basis.

Same like Tennis elbow, Golfer’s elbow is also caused by the inflammation and swelling of the tendons but this time attached to the inside pat of the elbow.

All these conditions are due to repetitive strain and stress on the tendons attached to the elbow which eventually leads to swelling and pain.

 

Do some stretches to PREVENT those pain now!

Finger Stretch – put a rubber band around your fingers including your thumb, slowly open them up and close them. Repeat up to 25 times.  Do this stretch up to 3 times a day, if it gets too easy then try 2 rubber bands.

 

 

 

Wrist Stretch – hold your arm straight so that the elbow isn’t bend and your palm faces up.

Use your other hand to hold the fingers of your outstretched hand and band it back toward your body until you can feel it in your inner forearm.
