Serving Up Relief: Conquering Tennis Elbow Pain

For tennis enthusiasts, the sound of a perfectly struck serve is pure joy. But for many, that joy can be overshadowed by the nagging pain of tennis elbow. This common condition, also known as lateral epicondylitis, affects the tendons on the outside of your elbow, making gripping and lifting objects feel like a chore.

Understanding the Battle Within

Tennis elbow isn't just for tennis players! It can strike anyone who performs repetitive motions that strain the forearm muscles, such as using a computer mouse excessively or painting. These motions cause tiny tears in the tendons that connect the forearm muscles to the elbow bone. As your body tries to heal these tears, inflammation sets in, leading to the familiar pain.

Symptoms that Signal a Time Out

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's best to listen to your body and take action:

  • Pain on the outside of your elbow, especially when gripping or lifting objects.
  • Tenderness to the touch in the same area.
  • Weakness in your grip strength.

Winning the Match Against Pain

The good news is, tennis elbow is usually treatable with a combination of rest, ice, compression, and pain relievers. Here's your game plan for recovery:

  • Rest: Take a break from activities that aggravate the pain. This doesn't mean giving up your favorite sport forever, but it might be time to adjust your training or switch to a lower-impact activity for a while.
  • Ice: Apply our CopperFreeze Cryo Compression Sleeve to the affected area for 15-20 minutes at a time, several times a day. The cold helps reduce inflammation and numb the pain.
  • Compression: This is where Copper Compression comes in!
