Epicondylitis - Definition


Definition


The epicondyle is the projection of bone near a condyle, a rounded portion of an articular surface. Generally speaking when we refer to the epicondyle, we localize the problem at the elbow on the outside of the humerus. Epicondylitis is an inflammation of the epicondyle. The term tennis elbow is sometimes used due to its frequent occurrence in tennis players. Tennis elbow is painful and appears following a trauma or in cases of repeated effort of the forearm. This may be consistent with the practice of a sport, but also in the context of a profession, such as gardening, or everyday gestures. Tennis elbow can be treated by resting the forearm and wrist, the use of analgesics or anti-inflammatory drugs, or rarely by surgery, as a last resort.
