Tennis Elbow Isn't Only For Tennis Players

Tennis elbow is the most common condition in the elbow. Tennis elbow is actually a tendinopathy of the wrist extensors on the outside of the elbow, hence why it is also called lateral epicondylitis. The development of tennis elbow is through overloading of the wrist extensors, typically either through activities that require a lot of gripping or repetitive wrist extension. While tennis elbow is commonly experienced by tennis players, it is also common in weight lifters, baseball/softball players, and construction workers.
