Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)

Tennis elbow (clinically known as lateral epicondylitis.) is a fairly common condition caused by the overuse of the muscles attached to your elbow and used to straighten your wrist, brought on by repeated actions.

 

If the muscles are strained, tiny tears and inflammation can develop near the lateral epicondyle on the outside of your elbow. The condition causes pain around the outside of the elbow which is more pronounced when - lifting or bending your arm, when small objects, twisting your forearm, such as turning a door handle or opening a jar. You may also find it difficult to fully extend your arm.

 

The condition is not limited to tennis players as the name suggests.

 

Pain that occurs on the inner side of the elbow is known as golfer's elbow.
