Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are two common pain sources cause by overuse and repetitive motion.
Tennis elbow causes pain on the outside of the elbow from inflamed tendons – lateral epicondylitis. Repeatedly hitting backhands on the tennis court will cause tennis elbow.
Golfer’s elbow – medial epicondylitis – causes painful, inflamed tendons on the inside of the elbow. Medial epicondylitis is due to poor technique in hitting a golf ball.
