Tennis arm (medically: epicondylitis) develops not only during tennis, but frequently also when working at home or in daily work on the computer. Similar, repetitive movements and putting a lot of strength into your actions as well as working for hours with the mouse or keyboard can overstrain the lower arm.
Inflammations in the tendon base of the hand and finger muscles on the elbow are the result.
Tennis arm: Pain in the elbow
Tennis arm shows itself through pain in the elbow region, which can radiate into the hand. The fist increasingly loses strength; rotational movements intensify the problems.
Objects like coffee cups or books become difficult to lift or carry, and even shaking hands becomes almost impossible.
Orthotics effectively soothe discomfort
If there are acute epicondylitis complaints, the arm should be rested and possible strain avoided. Special bandages and orthotics such as the Epi Forsa Plus help with this. They apply targeted pressure to the lower arm musculature, relieving the painful tendon bases on the elbow. When tennis arm has healed, the bandages and orthotics can be worn preventively in repetitive everyday activities or sports.
