Tennis elbow, golfer and angler

I suggest you look at the sketch right away. We see the elbow joint "prepared" from all the tissues of no significant importance. It is a "hinge" joint – the main humeral-elbow and "articulated" – brachiocephalic and ulnarradial. Dominant are the visible flexor muscles of the wrist and fingers (is theirs 5), extremely strong and precisely working at the same time (carrying suitcases or buckets and threading a needle or watchmaking or eye microsurgery). Thanks to these muscles we grip, we hold, we hug… tj. "We work with a rod". We are dealing with a static load (it is better to put the stick on the support if possible) and dynamic when pulling the bait – and especially fish fighting furiously! – or casting a bait kit. Loads refer to the joint attachment of these muscles to the medial epicondyle (internal) the humerus. This type of injury is officially referred to as a "golfer's elbow" hitting only the so called. get away. Shorthand typists often suffer from this, typists, pianists and many other "manual laborers" and crystal grinders are therefore transferred to a professional pension! Working with the rod, of course, also "employs" the extensor muscles of the wrist and fingers (is theirs 4), which are functional antagonists to flexors (they do the opposite). Thousands of movements performed while spinning the reel are performed with the alternating participation of flexors and extensors! – and this is the main cause of rectifier trailer failure in our industry, located on the lateral epicondyle (external) the humerus. This damage has the official name of a "tennis elbow", often hitting the so-called. backhand, and we… we are introducing the concept of "reel-angler elbow" to this day. Of course, every movement with a bunch (wrist) "Up" is the effect of rectifiers and is sometimes performed not only when spinning the reel. Exceeding the material strength threshold is an obvious sign of pain – initially with resistance, but also often spontaneous immediately, resting. Pain may be severe, piercing the entire forearm, but more often it is dimmer, "Fuzzy", difficult to define. So much, that we can feel the elbow ourselves, it is very easy to find the epicondyle of the humerus and see where the source of the pain is, usually radiating along the forced muscles to the hands and fingers. I do not have to – understandably – describe treatments, which is identical to the shoulder, except that the sometimes necessary immobilization is to put on the so-called. longety or plaster tutor for the elbow, forearm and wrist. Persistent conversion of this problem forces us – fortunately, occasionally – for the lengthening surgical procedure (loosening) tendon over the trailer. Quervain’a kciuk (the name of a French physician-explorer).
One short and thick finger against the other four – of course! and copes, that hey. Almost all the grips we use every day prove it, that the thumb plays an enormous role by working opposite to the rest of the fingers. He does it so efficiently thanks to short, very strong muscles, the so-called. the withers of the thumb (thick pillow under the thumb on the palm side) – however, they fail very rarely. However, there are many activities like: chopping a tree, driving stakes, cutting with scissors… or keeping the abdomen thumb on the rod or reel crank, overloading the long abductor and short extensor muscles and their tendons. The repair and production processes known to us are the cause of very characteristic spontaneous pain, under load and compression in the so-called. tobacco shop (dimple at the base of the folded thumb – here our great-grandfathers poured snuff). Treatment is naturally the same as for previous pain syndromes: omission of aggravating thumb movements, injecting the correct drug (by a doctor of course) and wrapping with an elastic bandage to prevent jerks and other injuries. Place the rod and reel on 5-10 days! I'm sure, that everyone understands much better now, why all rod and reel manufacturers compete in making the lightest equipment possible! Of course, for the sake of our shoulders, elbows and thumbs.

Finally, a sentence about flexible, painless and non-moveable tumor – a lump on the back of the wrist – it is called ganglion, it is a tendon sheath aperture filled with thick jelly. It is harmless, you don't have to do anything with it, usually he will die himself.

I wish all colleagues to avoid trouble and good health.
