Tennis Elbow

Elbow pain can be due to multiple causes, but most commonly, elbow pain is related to the tendons on either side of the elbow. Pain from tendons on the inside elbow is called ‘golfers elbow’ and pain on the outside is referred to as ‘tennis elbow.’ Tennis elbow is by far the most common of the two conditions and it is generally caused by overload or overuse of the tendon from the muscles at the back of your forearm (those that extend your wrist). With this overload over time, changes start to occur within the tendon and this becomes painful as the tendon is not coping with the increased demand. Tennis elbow tends to get worse if not managed appropriately and pain can travel down the forearm
