Massage Therapy For Tennis Elbow (Elbow Joint Pain)

If you bend your arm, you can feel three bumps at your elbow joint. The most common type of elbow pain, known as 'tennis elbow', is associated with the two bumps that lie on either side of the elbow's main bump. Injury to the tendons that anchor muscles to these bumps are the cause of tennis elbow. Overuse of the elbow joint, or continuously making the muscles take heavy loads, can cause small tears to form in the soft tissue, particularly where the tendons anchor to the bony bump. Eventually, enough tears accumulate to cause pain and reduced movement of the elbow joint.
