Lateral epicondylitis more commonly known as tennis elbow, is characterized by pain on the outside of the elbow with lifting, gripping, and repetitive finger and wrist movements. Despite the name, tennis elbow is not found exclusively amongst tennis players. In fact, the most common cause of tennis elbow is extended periods of time spent using a computer keyboard or mouse, especially if one’s biomechanics are less than ideal. Pain is normally only present when performing aggravating activities, but can present as a constant dull ache in some cases. Research shows that shock wave therapy can help improve the pain of tennis elbow in some cases. If you have any question, please send us an email.
