Lateral Epicondylopathy, or Tennis Elbow as it is commonly known, is the term used to describe a painful condition of the outside elbow. This pain usually occurs as a result of overuse of the tendons in your elbow, from repetitive motions of the arm and wrist.

The body employs a range of muscles to move the wrist joint, many of them start at the elbow. When the elbow is straight, the main muscle which stabilizes the wrist is called the Extensor Carpi Radialis Bravis (ECRB). Repeated or over-use of the ECRB makes it weaker and may cause tiny microscopic tears to appear in the tendon at the point of attachment to the outside of the elbow (lateral epicondyle). As a result, you experience pain and tenderness. The location and orientation of the ECRB, near bony bumps, increases the likelihood of damage from wear and tear. When the elbow bends and straightens it can cause the muscle to rub.

There are 3 zones where the ECRB can become injured:

• where the tendon meets the bone • where the muscle meets the tendon • within the muscle itself

The amount of time it will take you to get better is very much connected to which zone you have injured. Also, over time, the body often compensates by using other muscles instead. In the case of the Tennis Elbow - this is most often the Triceps muscle.

Although Tennis Elbow can occur as a result of a sudden injury it is usually due to a slow build up of damage to or overload to the muscle and tendon around the outer elbow region.
