http://www.handmasterplus.com Dr. Terry Zachary explains tennis elbow, including cause, prevention, rehabilitation exercises and the cause of tennis elbow, and demonstrates hand muscle strengthening exercise for injury prevention using Handmaster Plus.

The cause of tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is inflammation of the tendons that originate from the lateral epicondyle. Any time you see -itis it means inflammation. So tennis elbow is inflammation of the lateral epicondyle of the humerus, thus lateral epicondylitis. The finger extensor muscles and wrist extensor muscles form a common extensor tendon that originates at the lateral epicondyle. These are the muscles that are chronically poorly exercised, usually from habitual repetitive grip and repetitive rotative motions (RSI) and are thus overused or open to overuse and eventually tennis elbow.

Similarly, golfer's elbow is inflammation of the tendon that originate on the medial epicondyle of the humerus and thus is referred to in therapy as medial epicondylitis.

Tennis elbow treatment protocols are best handled by skilled upper extremity therapists such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists or hand therapists, followed by rehabilitation exercises that re-establishes muscle balance, stability and blood flow to the elbow.

Handmaster Plus is a best exercise, training and treatment exercise for complete hand, wrist, forearm and elbow strength to establish balanced grip strength and training in grip related sports, including golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, football, hockey, gymnastics, body building, jet ski, motocross, skido, quad, climbing, bowling, arm wrestling, martial arts, ultimate fighting, UFC, snow board, boxing, karate, Jiu jitsu, lacrosse, cricket, rugby, shooting and archery.

The Handmaster Plus provides complete strengthening, treatment and training exercises that strengthen the finger and wrist extensor muscles as well as the finger flexor muscles, providing complete strength, stability and rehabilitation.

Handmaster Plus is also used by musicians, including string instruments, guitar (guitarist, banjo, violin, bass, fiddle), drums (drummers), keyboard (piantists, piano, organ, organists) and wind instruments (flute, saxophone, trombone, clarinet, etc.) to maximize performance and prevent pain and injury and provide relief from pain.

Handmaster Plus is used in the workplace (crafts, dentists, dental techs, surgeon, beauticians, barbers, computer workers, video games, PDA, etc.) to treat, prevent and provide relief from painful RSI (repetitive stress injury) like carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow lateral epicondylitis), golfer's elbow (medial epicondylitis), tendinitis, Dequervain's syndrome, and repetitive strain, overuse, strain, sprain of finger, thumb, wrist, carpal tunnel, forearm or elbow.
