Tennis Elbow

Although the name suggests an association with playing tennis, almost any one can develop the symptoms. Sufferers will often complain of pain around the elbow region and sometimes weakness in the affected wrist. They may also experience pain around the elbow and forearm on gripping, lifting and extending the wrist.

Exercise 1 – How to Massage your Tennis Elbow Exercise 1 – How to Massage your Tennis Elbow With your arm supported on your thigh, gently massage along the outside of your forearm between your elbow and wrist. This helps reduce tension in the forearm muscles. Just spend 5 minutes every 2 days doing this.

Exercise 2 - Apply Ice for Tennis Elbow

Use an ice pack or pack of frozen peas (wrapped in a thin towel) over the outside of your elbow. This can be useful for tennis elbow and repetitive strain injuries, as well as other pathologies of the elbow. Hold the ice over the painful area for 5-10 minutes and do this twice per day to reduce inflammation.
