Common Causes of Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)
Lack of tissue strength: When the muscles and connective tissues of the wrist and forearm are unable to adapt to repetitive movements and stress, it can lead to tissue damage and pain.
Repetitive Muscle Use: Tennis elbow often results from overusing the forearm muscles in repetitive actions, common in various daily tasks.
Sports and Activities: Engaging in sports, particularly racket sports, with incorrect techniques can lead to strain and injury in the elbow area.
Occupational Risk: Certain professions that require repetitive arm movements, such as carpentry or painting, increase the risk of developing tennis elbow.
Age Factor: Adults between the ages of 30 and 50 are more prone to tennis elbow, often due to the natural wear and tear experienced by the body over time.
Recognizing the Symptoms of Tennis Elbow
Forearm and Elbow Pain: The most common symptom is a persistent pain or burning sensation in the muscles of the forearm and around the elbow joint. This pain is primarily located on the outer part of the elbow and may be constant or intermittent.
Weakness in Gripping: Alongside pain, there's often a noticeable weakness in gripping objects. This weakness can affect basic tasks like turning a doorknob or shaking hands.
Pain During Movement: The pain typically increases with forearm activities, especially those involving lifting, twisting, or gripping. Movements like lifting a kettle, using a screwdriver, or playing certain sports can exacerbate the discomfort.
Radiating Pain: The pain may not be confined to the elbow; it can radiate down to the upper arm and wrist, intensifying during certain movements.

“From our first meeting, Jeff's professionalism and warmth were evident. He took the time to understand my symptoms and provided clear explanations about my condition. His hands-on techniques, along with targeted exercises, not only relieved my discomfort but also equipped me with tools for self-care.”
“Jeff is one of the very few therapists that I have gone too who is constantly adapting the rehab/rehab exercises in a very sport specific manner. He is also a evidence based practioner who rarely speaks in absolutes while constantly being on top of the most recent literature. It's a pleasure working with him and i highly reccomend going to him as a full time athlete who has been hopping around multiple clinics.”
