Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is an overuse injury of a tendon that connects the forearm muscles to the lateral epicondyle (a knobby bump at the bottom of the humerus bone of the upper arm). It is a common injury not only in people who play racket sports, but also in other types of athletes as well as in anyone who puts repetitive stress on the elbow, such as plumbers, carpenters and industrial workers.
