The most common injury to the elbow is that of lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the extensor muscles on the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. Tennis elbow usually develops from repetitive gripping activities such as grasping a tennis racquet, rake, crescent wrench or paintbrush. These activities put too much stress on tendons that eventually cause small tears in the tissue and thus tennis elbow.
One of the most common injuries to the elbow is that of medial epicondylitis, or golfer's elbow. Golfer's elbow is an inflammation of the extensor muscles on the medial epicondyle of the humerus. Golfers elbow usually develops from repetitive impact activities such as hitting a golf ball, pitching a baseball, chopping wood, or using of hand tools frequently. These activities put too much stress on tendons that eventually cause small tears in the tissue and thus golfers elbow.
