Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender, usually as a result of a specific strain or overuse.
Whilst it is called "tennis elbow", it should be noted that it is by no means restricted to tennis players.
Anyone who does a lot of work involving lifting at the elbow or repetitive movements at the wrist is susceptible to the complaint.
With tennis elbow, the common extensor tendon origin at the Lateral epicondyle of the humerus is irritated, inflamed, damaged and potentially torn.
