Tennis elbow is an overuse and muscle strain injury. The cause is repeated contraction of the forearm muscles that you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. The repeated motions and stress to the tissue may result in a series of tiny tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony prominence at the outside of your elbow.

What is tennis elbow? Lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, is swelling of the tendons that bend your wrist backward away from your palm. A tendon is a tough cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones. The tendon most likely involved in tennis elbow is called the extensor carpi radialis brevis. Tennis elbow is usually diagnosed in both men and women between the ages of 30 and 50 years.
Lateral elbow tendinopathy. Widely considered the most common elbow disorder associated with tennis, the term tennis elbow dates back to Major’s first description in 1883 13,14. The condition itself is not exclusively related to tennis, however it has be noted that up to 50% of persons who play tennis regularly will develop lateral elbow tendinopathy symptoms at some point during their careers 15. The term ‘tendinopathy’ is preferred to the more common ‘tendinitis’.
