What is tennis elbow
Before we discuss the various treatments for tennis elbow, we need to explore what it is.
The quickest way to identify it is by locating where on the elbow you feel the pain. You will tend to feel the discomfort on the outside of the elbow.
Obviously, it occurs a lot in tennis players, hence the name. But it can also be brought on by repetitive movements like decorating or playing an instrument.
It is very much an overuse injury and is caused by overworking the muscles and tendons of the forearm.
You may feel it most when bending the arm, twisting the arm or picking up small objects like coins.
