The disease is so named because it is especially common in tennis players. Edema due to strain at the point where the muscles and bones adhere at the elbow causes the complaint. The disease is especially common in people who use screwdrivers, hammers, gardeners and housewives who use brooms at home.
The main complaint is pain. There may be different levels of pain, ranging from a very simple pain to pain that restricts movements.
In the treatment, anti-edema medications and elbow pads provide success in the first plan. If there is no improvement despite this treatment, different injections can be applied. In addition, ESWT treatment is a treatment that can get really successful results recently. These treatments are usually sufficient. Very rarely, advanced treatments (surgery or physical therapy) are needed.
