Is your elbow hurting? Do you play tennis?
Do you feel a pain or a strain in your arm when you swing your tennis racket or golf club?
If so, you may have a tennis elbow.
Tennis elbow is the colloquial term given to the condition brought about by overuse of the muscles and tendons in your hand, arm and forearm.
It does not just affect tennis players, but individuals such as golfers, archers, shooters, swimmers, climbers, waiters and construction workers as well.
It is a common injury for these individuals because of the repetitive use of muscles in their hands, forearms, and arms. It also is called “golfer’s elbow” and “lateral epicondylitis.”
No single name has been agreed upon because the underlying mechanism of the problem is not yet fully understood.
