You don’t have to be a tennis player to get tennis elbow.
You don’t have to be a tennis player to get tennis elbow. The condition commonly referred to as tennis elbow is caused by overuse of the elbow and surrounding muscles and tendons.
People who have jobs, hobbies, or participate in athletics (like tennis) which require repetitive movement of the arm, elbow, wrist and hand are most likely to develop tennis elbow. Tennis elbow can affect either arm.
Your physician will diagnose your pain as tennis elbow based on history and physical exam.
