What is Tennis Elbow?

Lateral Epicondylitis, or Tennis Elbow, is a condition of the elbow which causes inflammation from the wrist to the outside elbow and degeneration of the tendons of the elbow. The tendons attach to the lateral epicondyle, the bony bump on the outer side of the elbow.

Tennis Elbow is a common sports injury, especially in the game of Tennis, due to the repetitive use of the wrist and elbow when hitting a tennis ball, hence the name “Tennis Elbow”.

Tennis Elbow can also be caused by; repetitive motions, other sports, manual work and even common activities such as using scissors or gardening.
