Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

What Causes Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow is a common condition with a variety of causes outside of just playing tennis. What all of them have in common is that they result in overstraining the same area of the forearm, arm, or hand muscles. Tennis elbow is the result of tiny tears/inflammation in the tendon or tendon attachment in the elbow, and often occurs after repetitive motions of the wrist or arm, especially prevalent in those who are reliant on the computer mouse.

Symptoms:

  • Pain in the outside of the elbow
  • Pain in the wrist and forearm
  • Arm weakness, making holding things or turning doorknobs strenuous

What We Recommend:

RollerMouse – Designed to sit in front of your keyboard, a RollerMouse will allow users to minimize repetitive motions of the wrists while keeping users arms at their sides and not pivoting to grab a traditional mouse.
