Strengthening Exercises for Tennis Elbow
What Causes Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow is a classic repetitive stress injury caused by overuse. Any activity that strains the muscles around the elbow over and over again can cause it.
The most common symptom of tennis elbow is an ache on the outside of the elbow. Over time - from a few weeks to a few months - the ache turns into a chronic pain. The outside of your elbow may become too painful to touch.
Eventually, you may find it harder or more painful to grip or lift things. Sometimes tennis elbow affects both arms.
