The Tennis Elbow Prognosis: Is It Really This Gloomy?

The Tennis Elbow Prognosis: Is It Really This Gloomy? | About Tennis Elbow | Scoop.it
Tennis elbow is a condition where you have pain on the outer side of the elbow usually as the result of overuse. For more information visit Patient.
TennisElbowClassroom's insight:
When it comes to the prognosis for Tennis Elbow (the typical / average / expected healing and recovery time) Patient. info states:

"For most people, tennis elbow lasts between six months and two years. Most people are better in less than one year. Unfortunately, once you have had tennis elbow, it may return."

This 6 months - 2 years range covers a lot of ground and offers the individual Tennis Elbow sufferer nothing particularly useful.

There is also a great deal of disparity between that prognosis and the ones found on other sites like WebMD, (which claims 6-12 months for recovery) and other medical info sites which claim a lot less.

The truth of the matter seems a lot closer to "we don't really know how long it will take - You can't predict it!"

Selfie Elbow: Is This 'New' Tech Injury Really New? 

'Selfie Elbow' they're starting to call it - But is it really a new kind of "Tech" injury caused by repeatedly taking selfie shots while holding ones phone - Or just Tennis Elbow Déjà vu?

TennisElbowClassroom's insight:

Is your elbow burning or does it feel like it's going to "get stuck" from taking so many selfie pics?

You may have an increasingly-common Repetitive Strain Injury, many are starting to call "Selfie Elbow" - labeling it a "new" kind of high-tech Repetitive Strain Injury (R.S.I.)

The only thing that's really new about it, though, is this relatively recent action of holding a phone up and repeatedly snapping selfie pics (20-30 times a day, apparentl.y)

Then again, an injury is an injury - It doesn't really matter what caused it. In this case it sounds a lot like good old Golfer's or Tennis Elbow!

Avoiding Tennis And Golf Injuries

Avoiding Tennis And Golf Injuries | About Tennis Elbow | Scoop.it
Summer is approaching, and with the nicer weather, you may become more active by breaking out those golf clubs and tennis rackets. However, you could be
TennisElbowClassroom's insight:
How are you doing on the tennis court or the golf course this summer? Are you avoiding those annoying overuse injuries like Tennis or Golfer's Elbow, Rotator Cuff pain and so forth?

This article, quoting Dr. John Fatti, an Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in hand, wrist and elbow injuries, offers some basic advice on avoiding these injuries.

Things like  warming up the area - (literally, with a hot pack!) - stretching before playing, and icing afterward...

However, if an injury does result, then Dr Fatti defaults to pretty much what you'd expect an Orthopedist to recommend:

"One would be a cortisone injection, which would shrink, significantly, the inflammation in that area. Or a little bit more conservatively, taking a little bit longer, is a physical therapy program,"

But do your own research first before going anywhere near a Cortisone-filled-syringe-wielding Orthopedist! The long-term price for any short-term relief may not be worth it.

Inflammation is part of the healing process and not your enemy and Cortisone inhibits healing and weakens tendons.

TennisElbowClassroom's insight:
If your arm or elbow is starting to hurt from taking too many selfies, you may have the latest trendy Tech Injury, many are starting to call "Selfie Elbow."

(Selfie Elbow is pain in the elbow caused by holding ones arm fully extended and putting one's wrist in an awkward position to snap pictures of oneself over and over – AKA taking “selfie” pics.)

This condition may seem like a silly farce, but an injury is an injury, and the principles in this video still apply, whether you're starting to feel pain in your elbow, wrist or fingers...

And whether it's related to typing, texting OR selfie taking using your computer, tablet OR smartphone.
