That nagging pain in your elbow may not have come from picking up a tennis racket. Many people get tennis elbow "off" the court. Holly Firfer has more in today's Health Minute. You don't have to be a tennis player to get tennis elbow. Melanie Wade got it from a weekend of too much yard work. "It started off as more of a burning pain, more of a fatigue," she says. The condition is really an injury caused by overusing the wrist. There is pain in the elbow because a tendon that connects a muscle of the lower arm to the elbow gets inflamed, or as in Wade's case, gets small tears in it. It can affect people in many professions. "Anything that is repetitive, plumbers, electricians, mechanics, people who are gripping and grasping and turning with their hands," says Dr. Amadeus Mason of Emory Sports Medicine. Wade is getting physical therapy. Rest, ice and anti-inflamatory medicines were not enough for her to heal. It's been hard for her to grip things. "I couldn't empty the dishwasher, I couldn't lift a glass," Wade says. There are ways to prevent tennis elbow. If you're doing yard work... "Don't do all of the bushes at once, break it up," says Dr. Mason. "Try not to do as much at one sitting." And, if you do play tennis... "Sure that as you get started with the sport that you do some exercises to strengthen the grip of your hand," says Dr. Mason. And, remember, don't overdo it.
