This video is about helping you figure out whether you have Tennis Elbow or not and I demonstrate some basic tests you can use to assess yourself.
These tests are pretty accurate, at least in a general sense, and are basically the same as what you would get if you saw a Doctor.
This may come as a surprise, but Tennis Elbow is often initially diagnosed using these simple methods – and little or nothing else, (other than your own description of the symptoms you’re experiencing, of course.)
You’re not likely to get an MRI or a Sonogram, right away, (unless you’ve had some kind of traumatic accident – But that isn’t how Tennis Elbow normally happens.)
You may get a scan eventually, if you don’t improve but that’s typically only A LOT later on, as in 6 months to a year later.
I hope you’re finding this site and this video on the early side, though, and you haven’t already been suffering that long, (or longer!)
