Pickleball / Tennis Elbow Injuries

If you play Pickleball and are starting to experience pain in your elbow area, look out! You may be coming down with a case of “Pickleball Elbow!”

Here’s the podcast episode on Libsyn:

http://tenniselbowclassroom.libsyn.com/pickleball-elbow

Hi, this is Allen Willette with the Tennis Elbow Classroom podcast, and I want to help you get off on the right track, understanding and treating your Pickleball injury whether it’s your inner or outer elbow that’s hurting – and whether it’s Tennis Elbow or Golfer’s Elbow.

Because, if you have a tendon injury in your elbow area, it’s most likely going to end up being classified as either Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow.

And I’d like to help you avoid the myths, and misconceptions and all the mistakes based on them – mistakes which derail a lot of sufferers and cause them a great deal of unnecessary suffering.

It’s no joke! One of my student/members who plays Pickleball in Arizona (where the sport is apparently VERY popular) recently told me that half the people he plays with are experiencing elbow pain!

Well, maybe not HALF – but a large percentage of Pickleball players are either among the walking wounded, all wrapped up in braces or bands – or they’re dropping out of matches like flies.

Why are so many players getting injured?…

Do You Have Pickleball Elbow?

Pickleball Elbow Injuries
If you play Pickleball and are starting to experience pain in your elbow area related to playing, look out! You may be coming down with a case of “Pickleball Elbow!”

It’s no joke!… I just did a Skype consultation this morning with one of my student members who plays Pickleball in Arizona (where the sport is apparently VERY popular) and he told me that half the people he plays with are having elbow pain!

Well, maybe not HALF – but a significant number of Pickleball players are either walking wounded, all wrapped up in braces or bands – or dropping out of matches left and right.

Why so many? One theory, proposed by my student-member is that the vibrations involved in hitting a hard, plastic Pickleball, with the paddle used in the game, are considerably more intense than the vibrations involved in hitting a tennis ball with a tennis racket.

And that seems like a good working theory to me! (I also notice that the volleys seem a lot faster than in tennis – There’s less running around, it’s more upper-body focused and the players are a lot closer together – so there are a lot more repetitions involved.)

What Are The Symptoms Of Pickleball Elbow?

The most common symptom is burning pain at the inner or outer elbow area, which can feel like that little bony knob (the Medial or Lateral Epicondyle) is literally “on fire!” Other major symptoms include:

  • Burning pain on the outside of the elbow
  • And/or burning pain at the inner elbow
  • Occasional sharp twinges of pain at either location (from the tendons, usually)
  • Tension, weakness and soreness in the muscles of the forearm (either side)
  • Stiffness, achiness and soreness in those areas upon waking every morning

Now, clinically speaking, I should point out that there isn’t really a medical condition known as ‘Pickleball Elbow’…
