What is Epicondylitis?
Also known as tennis elbow, epicondylitis is a condition which can cause serious pain and stiffness around the elbow. This can be a painful and irritating condition which can sometimes take many months to fully recover from. This injury can make a serious impact on your life. In some cases, it can prevent you from driving and working. If you aren’t given chance to rest the injury, then you could exacerbate the symptoms and suffer from permanent muscle damage.

|A Permanent, Disabling Epicondylitis Injury.||A tennis elbow injury which cannot be repaired with surgery or physical therapy. These injuries are often accompanied by chronic pain and arm weakness.

Tennis elbow is caused by the strenuous overuse of the forearm near the elbow joint. These muscles and tendons can become damaged, stretched or compacted. This can occur when lifting heavy objects. It is a common injury in sports and many industries.
Epicondylitis is common in the workplace. If you overstrain on a regular basis – lifting heavy materials, for example – then the likelihood of you developing the injury if increased. You should always follow health and safety standards to avoid any workplace injury.
It is possible to sustain all kinds of muscle injuries from a traffic collision. If too much stress has been placed on your elbow, it is possible that you will suffer from epicondylitis. This can be painful and result in long-term stiffness.
Typing rarely causes epicondylitis, but it is possible. This will depend on the angle and positioning of your keyboard and posture. It is possible for typing to cause similar injuries, including carpal tunnel and golfer’s elbow.
There are two main kind of epicondylitis, which are:
- Lateral Epicondylitis – Tennis elbow is caused by inflammation on the outside of the elbow.
- Medial Epicondylitis – Known as Golfer’s Elbow, this injury is caused by inflammation of muscles/tendons on the elbow’s interior-side.
There are many irritating and painful symptoms associated with lateral epicondylitis. These include:
- Pain in Upper Forearm.
- Pain when Lifting/Bending the Arm.
- Stiffness when Lifting or Turning Your Arm.
- Difficulty or Pain when Holding Small Objects.
- Inability to Fully Extend Your Arm.
Epicondylitis can cause weakness in the affected muscles. It can be difficult or painful to lift all kinds of weights. It can be difficult to fully grasp any large or small items. This weakness should gradually disappear as you make a recovery.
You can suffer from numbness or unpleasant tingling in some circumstances. This will occur when the injured muscle traps one or more nerves in you arm. The ulnar nerve is the most common nerve which will become trapped with tennis elbow.
Epicondylitis can cause other muscle injuries to develop. For example, you might carry things with different muscles. If you favour some muscles over others, they can become overused and develop muscle injuries of their own. This is known as a “Vicious Cycle”.
Swelling is a common symptom associated with epicondylitis. The injured muscle can often swell when it sustains damage. This can also make your arm more difficult to control, resulting in limited mobility. Inflammation can cause your ulnar nerve to become trapped.
You will normally make a full recovery from the injury within a few weeks or months. You should only begin to truly worry if the injury lasts for longer than two years. After this, you may require surgery to resolve the injury.
You don’t have to play tennis to get tennis elbow. Anyone who performs manual handling, works in construction, or types for hours every day is vulnerable to this injury. As such, it is an extremely common injury for employees across the UK.
Taking care not to overuse or stress your forearms and elbows is the best way of preventing this injury. Always follow health and safety standards and ensure that you have received training for any lifting you perform. Never overwork your muscles.
