This is a condition that results from repetitive movement of the arm and wrist. The most common causes are playing tennis, racquetball, or throwing other sports such as baseball or cricket. Symptoms include pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow, pain when gripping with the hand or twisting the forearm, and pain in the forearm when pressing on it. It is important to note that people can have a mild case of tennis elbow without knowing it because they might not experience any symptoms until they have overexerted themselves.
The condition can be managed conservatively with medications, physical therapy or lifestyle changes. In more severe cases surgery may be required to release tension from tissues around the injury site.
