Tennis elbow is a condition characterized by inflammation or degeneration of the tendons that connect the forearm muscles to the outside of the elbow. While the name suggests its association with tennis, tennis elbow can be caused by various repetitive motions of the wrist and arm
Various repetitive motions of the wrist and arm can cause tennis elbow. Activities such as painting, typing, gardening, and playing musical instruments can all contribute to developing this condition.
