What Is Epicondylitis?

Epicondylitis is a form of tendinitis that affects the elbow. It is caused by overuse from repetitive activities like swinging a tennis racket. Repetitive activities can cause inflammation in the tendons of the elbow that often requires medical treatment. This is a painful condition that limits the range of motion in the elbow. It’s common for the forearm muscles to suffer from this inflammation as well.

Who’s at Risk for Epicondylitis?

Don’t let the name “tennis elbow” fool you. Epicondylitis is not just an injury for tennis players. Any repetitive use involving the elbow, especially without proper training or warming up, can cause epicondylitis.

Common activities that can cause epicondylitis include:

  • Swimming
  • Throwing balls
  • Physical labor
  • Sawing or cutting tough objects like wood

A sore elbow after these kinds of activities is normal and can be treated with rest, ice, and pain medications. However, severe and long-lasting pain may be a sign of epicondylitis.

Other symptoms of epicondylitis include:

  • Weakness in the forearm
  • Weaker grip
  • Difficulty holding objects or performing daily tasks with your hands
  • Treating epicondylitis

Most doctors prefer to treat epicondylitis with noninvasive treatments like physical therapy, medication, or corticosteroids. Usually, the elbow recovers well from these kinds of treatments, but not in every case. When noninvasive treatments aren’t working for your epicondylitis, you may need surgery. The general goal of surgery for epicondylitis is to remove the damaged tissue in the muscle or tendon and reattach the healthy tissues. Surgeons can frequently perform elbow surgery with an arthroscope, which is a small tube with a camera on the end. This minimizes the need for large incisions, which improves recovery time and reduces pain during recovery.
