Tennis Elbow: Cause and Treatment

Tennis elbow is a type of tendinitis, with it's name coming from the sport commonly associated with causing it.
In this condition there is inflammation of the tendon of the forearm muscles that extend (pull back) the wrist.
Many activities that involve repetitive gripping can aggravate the tendon structure.

Typically people have: pain over the outside of the elbow, inflammation on the outer tip of the elbow and extreme tenderness over the inflamed area.

People with a tennis elbow injury often find it difficult to pick up objects (especially heavy items) and grip or hold objects for an extended period.
