What is Tennis Elbow?
Lateral epicondylitis, commonly referred to as "tennis elbow,"
is one of the most common and infamous elbow injuries. Essentially this
is a muscle strain caused by overuse, which can cause a series of small
and painful tears in the tendon. Although named for the athletes who commonly
suffer this injury, this condition impact many people who make repetitive
motions with their elbows, including plumbers, painters, and similar.
Tennis elbow is also similar, but distinct, from medial epicondylitis,
or "golfer's elbow," which can also be extremely painful.
