Tennis Elbow is a common elbow injury that can occur in Tennis players, but can occur in any one. Tennis Elbow is also known medically as medial epicondylitis. The elbow pain is often experienced on the inside of the elbow. Tennis Elbow is often a result of repetitive movements at the wrist that cause increase in stress and strain to the inside of the elbow. Signs include strength deficits and pain on lifting objects such as lifting a jug of milk, or even a cup of coffee. Signs can also include redness and swelling on the inside of the arm near the elbow joint. You don’t have to be playing Tennis to have Tennis Elbow.
