Tennis elbow is a common condition that generally occurs in middle age, characterised by pain on the outside of the elbow. The condition is aggravated by contraction of the muscles that extend the wrist and fingers. The pain can be severe and tends to vary in rough proportion to activity.
Elbow trauma is a common occurrence in young people who participate in an active sporting lifestyle, as well as during everyday life, as the result of accidental injury. A broad spectrum of injury patterns can occur. These may be minor, in which case simple pain relief and physiotherapy can be of great benefit, or they can be major and require surgery to get the best result.
