Elbow and knee pain can make it very difficult to move around. Some types of elbow pain are Golfer’s and Tennis Elbow. Tennis elbow is soreness or pain on the lateral side of the upper arm near the elbow. The part of the muscle that attaches to a bone is called a tendon. When you use continue to use these muscles over and over again, small tears can begin to develop in the tendon. Over time, this leads to irritation and pain where the tendon is attached to the bone. This injury is common in people who play a lot of tennis or other racquet sports, hence the name “tennis elbow.” However, any activity that involves repetitive twisting of the wrist; for example, using a screwdriver can lead to this condition. Therefore, individuals in the painting, computer/data entry, plumbing, construction, restaurant, and deli industries are more likely to develop tennis elbow.
Golfer’s elbow is a condition that causes pain on the inner side of your elbow, which is where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain may spread into your forearm and wrist which could lead to more discomfort or pain. Golfer’s elbow is similar to tennis elbow but with Golfers elbow it occurs on the inside, rather than the outside, of your elbow. Although, very common with golfers, this condition can extend to many individuals who actively use there fingers, wrists, elbows, or arms.
