Tennis Elbow Symptoms and Golf Elbow Symptoms

Tennis and golf elbow are generally forms of tendinosis caused by inflammation of the inner or outer elbow tendons. Elbow pain is usually described as a tenderness or weakness of the elbow joint, and is felt most often when extending the arm or bending the arm. Range of motion may or may not be affected by elbow discomfort. Tingling and numbness may also be experienced.Tennis elbow is characterized by pain in the outer part of the elbow, while golf elbow presents as pain in the inside of the elbow. Often the pain radiates to the upper arm or upper forearm.

Carpal Tunnel and Hand Pain Symptoms

Often carpal tunnel begins as a numb “pins and needles” sensation in the wrist, rather than specific pain in the hand. Weakness and a loss of strength are very common, and patients even report losing their firm grip or unintentionally letting go or dropping objects. Hand pain and wrist pain ultimately accompany carpal tunnel symptoms, and often the pain radiates through the fingers, palm, wrist, and forearm. Some even describe a burning or itching feeling. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is usually the result of demanding, repetitive movement. Hand pain and wrist pain are very often caused by work or leisure activities that require duplicated fine motor movements such as typing, hammering, sewing, or painting. Impingement of the median nerve causes the pain and numbness indicative of carpal tunnel.
