What is 'Tennis Elbow' ?

Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender. It's a condition that is commonly associated with playing tennis and other racquet sports, though the injury can happen to almost anybody.

The condition is more formally known as lateral epicondylitis ("inflammation to the outside elbow bone"), lateral epicondylosis, or simply lateral elbow pain.

Symptoms Of Tennis Elbow:
  • Recurring pain on the outside of the upper forearm just below the bend of the elbow; occasionally, pain radiates down the arm toward the wrist.
  • Pain caused by lifting or bending the arm or grasping even light objects such as a coffee cup.
  • Difficulty extending the forearm fully (because of inflamed muscles, tendons and ligaments).
  • Pain that typically lasts for 6 to 12 weeks; the discomfort can continue for as little as 3 weeks or as long as several years.
