Tennis elbow is considered one of the most common elbow conditions. It occurs as a result of repeated flexion and extension activities, most commonly associated, but not limited to, sports. Hence the name ‘Tennis Elbow’.
Golfer’s Elbow is also due to repeated flexion and extension. It affects the flexor compartment of muscles (muscle that flexes wrist) whereas Tennis elbow affects the extensor compartment (muscle that extends the wrist).
Both of these conditions result from small tears occurring where the muscles attach to the bone, leading to inflammation which becomes irritating and persistant. They occur in both sporting and non-sporting people!
