Have you ever wondered why your elbow or forearm hurts? One reason could be tennis elbow an inflammation of the muscles of the forearm where they attach near the elbow. This inflammation is usually caused by using the arm regularly either with heavy tasks, like hammering, or very repetitive tasks like typing. Whatever the cause these quick and simple tests will tell you if you have this common condition in the comfort of your own home.
Often this problem is misdiagnosed by Doctors because the pain isn’t always felt in the elbow itself. The tests have been shown by physical therapists to be very reliable when used together. These tests can then be used to give a real direction towards recovery.
If you have any doubt about your pain or have had a significant trauma to the elbow consult a health care professional.
