Lateral Epicondylitis (aka Tennis Elbow)

Tennis elbow is a repetitive-motion injury that is caused when the wrist forearm muscles (extensors and supinators) are overloaded. When the tendons cannot handle the load, small micro tears begin to occur and eventually you feel pain and weakness. Common activities like the following can evoke your symptoms:

  • playing tennis
  • using tools (plumbers, painters, cooks, etc…)
  • holding a coffee mug
  • turning a door knob
  • shaking hands
  • gripping anything
