Tennis Elbow 🤔
Did you know that this condition is seen commonly in desk workers, golfers and weekend gardeners? 👩🌾👨💻🏌️♀️
The extensor muscles and tendon in the forearm can be overworked by repetitive wrist extension or gripping. You might notice pain when trying to lift the kettle, open doors, lifting moderate to heavy loads or after long days on the computer. This pain can radiate up into the bicep or tricep and all the way down into the wrist or the hand.
Our physiotherapist Sophie can give you the tools and education you need to avoid continual overload and get you going on exercises to strengthen the tendon.
Quick tip: ‘Don’t poke or rub the elbow when it is sore, tendon’s hate to be compressed and although it may feel like the right thing to do, you are continuing to aggravate the tendon!’ 🙅♀️
