Tennis, while a fun and great sport to play, can lead to body pain and injuries due to the impact and repetition of movements. A tennis player’s dominant arm is especially prone to developing tennis elbow, which is also known as lateral epicondylitis.
Tennis elbow occurs when there’s a feeling of soreness, or tenderness around the joints that curve and connect the arms. The tendons become inflamed due to overuse. Golfers also suffer from lateral epicondylitis, so do laborers who do repetitive motions of swinging their arms.
At least 10-50% of players incur a tennis elbow injury. The condition is more prevalent in men than women and while it can strike at any age, it’s more common among tennis players between 30 to 50 years old.
