Thousands of athletes and other working professionals every year experience something commonly known as "Tennis Elbow". This distinctly named condition is, in fact, a kind of injury that can be contracted during any repetitive and stressful movements of the forearm, as is very common in the game of tennis. Of course, you don't have to be a tennis player to get tennis elbow.

Even after only a few times a month, you might be experiencing tightness and/or soreness. There is an enormous amount of torque and strain on shoulder and elbow joints, with the elbow typically being the weaker of those two joints. This can lead to severe tendonitis and the painful soreness know as "tennis elbow". Fortunately for competitive tennis players, tennis elbow treatments have come a long way from the "icing and resting" recommendations.
