Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow, also called Lateral Epicondylitis, is a condition that most commonly causes elbow pain and arm pain. Tennis elbow occurs when there is an injury or irritation to the tendons (tendonitis) that join the elbow to the muscles in the forearm.

This elbow injury causes swelling and pain. Tennis Elbow, while frequently seen in tennis players and athletes, can happen to anyone who overuses their arms.
