In previous blog posts, we have discussed many facets of tennis, including the players that our changing the face of the game, the popularity of the game in the United States, health issues that may result from playing tennis, and our custom-made tennis courts.
In all actuality, it is funny talking about tennis in the fall, isn’t it? We don’t normally associate tennis with leaves falling from the trees, like you don’t want to hit up a court that is covered by a blanket of them, but tennis is played year-round though – there are indoor courts and many actually enjoy playing in the colder temperatures. If tennis is year-round, that means that tennis elbow is year-round, which is one of the worst things that can happen to a serious tennis player.
According to the U.S. News &World Report, “Most people with tennis elbow recover without physical therapy and steroid injections, according to a study by researchers in Norway. Symptoms of tennis elbow include a weak grip and pain from damage to tendons in the forearm. Often, this happens from repetitive use, such as with tennis, golf or carpentry.”
That’s a big epiphany, realizing that you can recover from tennis elbow without engaging in physical therapy or doing steroid injections. That will undoubtedly change the way doctors and other health physicians treat tennis elbow.
Thankfully, our post tension tennis courts will never suffer anything similar to tennis elbow; they are built to last, able to stand up to any weather conditions and the wear and tear of time.
