Tennis/Golfer’s Elbow

About 

Tennis/Golfer’s elbow is a condition that causes pain where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside or outside of your elbow. The pain might spread into your forearm and wrist. It’s not limited to golfers. Tennis players and others who repeatedly use their wrists or clench their fingers also can develop tennis/golfer’s elbow. The pain of tennis/golfer’s elbow doesn’t have to keep you off the course or away from your favorite activities. Rest and appropriate treatment can get you back into the swing of things.
