Tennis Elbow & Golfer’s Elbow
Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow are similar overuse injuries whereby pain occurs near the elbow. In Tennis Elbow or also known as lateral epicondylitis, the outside tendons of the elbow are overused whereas in Golfer’s Elbow or medial epicondylitis affects the inner tendons. Despite the names, both these conditions are not limited to those who play tennis or golf. Anyone who repeatedly uses their arm muscles can suffer from these muscle strain injuries including weightlifters, athletes, racquet sports players, carpenters, mechanics and painters.
