Treatments for tennis elbow abound, and the key is to find the one that is right for you. Although many interventions bring temporary relief, few go right to the source of the problem to treat and prevent. In order to properly treat tennis elbow, one must target the muscles and tendons that create the injury.

Tennis elbow is a common repetitive strain injury that affects men and women equally. In general, the condition strikes in middle age, with the vast majority of afflicted people experiencing their first symptoms between the ages of 35 and 65. Although the injury is commonly associated with athletes (hence the name), it is also common in manual laborers.

Tennis elbow is an injury wherein the tendon along the outside of the elbow becomes inflamed or begins to degenerate. This region of the arm is very vulnerable, as the strong muscles in the forearm merge into tendons that travel through the elbow joint. Tennis elbow occurs when they bony prominence where tendon and muscle meet becomes inflamed, creating pain in the lateral aspect of the arm.

Given these underpinnings, effective tennis elbow treatments must address the muscular imbalance that drives the condition. Rest and over-the-counter pain medication may do the trick sometimes, but they are unlikely to bring lasting relief. Similarly, an elbow orthosis (brace), brings only temporary improvement. To really treat tennis elbow, patients are advised to practice exercises that strengthen and lengthen the muscles and tendons in the forearm. Balance Systems, Inc. has developed a unique system for treating tennis elbow that involves exercise to not only heal but prevent future occurrences of the condition.
