As the name implies it is a condition that affects tennis players which is incorrect. In fact this condition is common among the non athletes more often than in tennis players. The condition is characterized by the inflammation of the tendons that are attached to the Lateral epicondyle (outer part of the elbow) which are responsible of extending the wrist and fingers (Common Extensor Origion).
Include pain that hits on the Lateral aspect of the elbow ( outer surface) with gripping activities and with pressing on that spot. In advanced stage weakness of the muscles responsible of gripping takes place as the patient refrains from gripping as it is painful.
Tennis Elbow is an annoying condition which takes time to recover. Treatments include Non Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs ( NSAIDs),V, painkillers and physiotherapy.
