Tennis Elbow (aka Lateral Epicondylitis)

Elbow pain caused by tennis elbow usually occurs slowly and spontaneously. Pain is usually quite local on the ‘lateral epicondyle’ (the bony prominence on the outside of the elbow) and may spread up and down the upper limb. Grip is often impaired due to pain and therefore the condition can affect daily activities. Tenderness is usually noted over the lateral epicondyle with occasional tenderness at nearby sites. Certain movement of the wrist and elbow can aggravate the elbow pain.
