Caring & Treating Since 2005
What is Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow?
Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition which affects the tendons that attach to the outside of the elbow.
Golfer’s elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is a similar condition affecting the inside of the elbow instead. Tennis elbow is much more common than golfer’s elbow. Despite their names, these injuries can occur in people who overuse their wrists and arms through repeated motions and do not affect just tennis players and golfers only.
