What Is Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow is a condition that causes joint pain in the elbow due to repetitive use of the tendons in the joint. This repetitive use leads to inflammation and tears.

It’s often associated with tennis, as tennis players are constantly using their elbows – hence the name. However, it can impact anyone who repetitively uses their hands, wrists, elbows, and forearms, including:

  • Golfers
  • Racquetball and pickleball players
  • Bowlers
  • Softball and baseball players
  • Gardeners
  • Auto mechanics
  • Carpenters
  • Assembly line workers

Symptoms of Tennis Elbow

If you have tennis elbow, you may feel some or all of the following symptoms.

  • Elbow pain on the outside part of the elbow
  • Swelling around the elbow joint
  • Elbow pain when you try to twist, bend, or extend your arm
  • Stiffness in the elbow

How Can I Prevent Tennis Elbow?

If you perform a job, play a sport, or enjoy a hobby that requires repetitive motion of the arms, there are a couple of things you can do to help reduce the likelihood of developing tennis elbow. Stretching the arms and elbows a few times throughout the course of the day is one. Additionally, gripping exercises might help strengthen the elbow, which can also reduce your chances.
