Tennis elbow is a condition that is not usually anything to do with tennis, most sufferers of tennis elbow have probably not been near a tennis racket since school! Tennis elbow is in fact the term for a condition known clinically as lateral epicondylitis. Pain is felt around the outside of the elbow, around the outside of the upper forearm and is most keenly felt when lifting or bending the arm. People with tennis elbow may also have difficulty in gripping and twisting the forearm - such as holding pens or opening a jar or turning handles, they may also have having difficulty extending the forearm.
