Treatment for Tennis Elbow/golfer’s Elbow, Golfers Elbow Treatment Exercises, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Physiotherapy for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Every day we move our arms and legs actively to perform daily activities and movements. These parts of the body, therefore, have the prime function of bringing about activity, such as walking or cooking. But these limbs which we actively use are also susceptible to injuries and other medical conditions with their responsibility of movement.

Let's talk about medical conditions related to the forelimbs or commonly called hands or arms. The common medical conditions which affect tissues or joints of our arm include tennis elbow/golfer’s elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.

Tennis elbow/golfer’s elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc, are all common medical conditions involved with our arm. These problems usually arise due to overuse of the arm muscles or because of nerve irritation. The causes of the mentioned problems are, however, not very similar to one another as we will see now.

Distinguishing between Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

The above-mentioned problems are all related to our forearms, but still display differences nevertheless.

Tennis Elbow like the name suggests is a problem that affects the elbow, particularly the outer elbow. The symptoms of it include pain and weakness which makes it difficult to grip any object. The cause of the tennis elbow is straining of the muscle due to its over-usage.

Golfer’s Elbow is similar to Tennis elbow, as it also affects the elbow. But in the case of golfer’s elbow, the inner side of the elbow is affected. Individuals suffering from golfer’s elbow experience pain, weakness, stiffness, and numbness in the affected elbow. Causes of a golfer’s elbow are playing sports involving throwing or using a racquet by an improper technique and could also be caused because of forceful frequent movements of the elbow.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome on the other hand is related to the median nerve which affects our wrists. Any irritation to the nerve because of medications or inflammatory conditions could lead to the syndrome. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include weakness and numbness in the wrist.
