Lateral epicondylalgia, also called tennis elbow, is an irritation of the wrist extensor muscles. This condition can affect people performing repetitive motions of the wrist and arm, such as tennis players. Symptoms include pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.
Tennis elbow is a common overuse injury that often develops gradually over a period of weeks or months. The condition is characterized by pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow, which may worsen with certain activities or movements.
If you’re dealing with lateral epicondylalgia, know that most people fully recover from this condition. As a general guideline, it can take a few months to recover completely. Of course, this varies from person to person – some may recover more quickly, while others may take longer.
