Bone fractures, commonly known as broken bones, can be of several different types. Recovery takes anything from a few weeks to several months depending on the severity of the fracture, and the best treatment varies. Mild bone fractures heal naturally without any intervention; severe bone fractures may need surgery, immobilisation and physiotherapy once healing has reached a certain stage.
A tendon injury tends to occur either as a result of a one-off incident such as a fall from a ladder, or from a long-term repetitive injury.
Tennis elbow is technically known as lateral epicondylitis. It is characterised by pain and inflammation around the lateral condyle, the bony lump on the outermost side of the elbow. This is the point at which the major tendons connect to the muscles of the forearm. Although the pain is felt at the site of tissue damage, tennis elbow results from forceful wrist movements.
