The Anatomy of Tennis Elbow:
What is the Painful Condition and How does it Develop?

Tennis Elbow is a condition where the tendons around the outer side of the elbow become inflamed. This usually happens when you have been doing repetitive, forceful movements.

The pain can get worse if you continue to play tennis or do any other activity that causes this pain and will likely keep coming back.

It is also known as Lateral Epicondylitis (the latin word "itis" indicates inflammation).
