Tennis Elbow 

Tennis elbow is the tendinopathy of extensor group over lateral epicondyle. It is originally named as "Medial Epicondylitis" in the literature. Extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) is common soft tissue involved in the condition. ECRB would come across inflammation in acute stage, and it usually able to recover with proper resting. However, if the repetitive strain is still keeping, the tendon would then keep irritation and cause tendon degeneration. Tendinosis is therefore named, according to the histology found over the ECRB tendon.

Patient should rest their forearm and hand. No power grip is allowed in acute stage, and patient should not lifting heavy weight as it would encourage the synergistic contraction of forearm muscle.
