Tennis elbow

L'épicondylite latérale
(coude de tennis)

Qu'est-ce que c'est ?

Lateral epicondylitis is the most common elbow injury. It affects many participants in racquet sports, whether they are amateurs or professionals.
This injury also occurs during repetitive movements involving the wrist, whether at work or during daily activities.
As a result of overexertion, inflammation occurs where muscles and tendons attach to the elbow. The muscles and tendons involved are those that allow the wrist and fingers to extend.
Without proper treatment, this condition can develop into a chronic and recurring problem. Degeneration or partial tearing of the tendon is possible.
