Your doctor says you have tennis elbow and you say, "But I don't even play tennis!" Tennis elbow is really just the unofficial or lay term for lateral epicondylitis—and even that name is questioned. So, what is it that plagues your elbow or forearm?
It could be tennis elbow, golfers elbow, bursitis, cubital tunnel syndrome, radial nerve entrapment, or a sprain/strain injury. These are often termed overuse injuries. With trauma, you might have suffered a fracture or dislocation.
This area of the body is usually a pretty straight-forward area to diagnose and treat successfully. A person's poor body mechanics or ergonomics is often the main reason why the problem becomes chronic, and they are often unaware of what they may be doing. Other times, the pain persists because treatment has been too symptom-focused.
Either way, get it taken care of and learn how to keep it away for good!
