FAST FACTS

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is the degeneration of the tendon in the elbow due to repeated backhand strokes in tennis. If you play tennis or other sports that apply stress to ligaments and tendons, perform tendon-strengthening exercises, wear a brace on your elbow or affected body part, and apply ice packs and take oral pain relievers if pain persists. If these treatments do not help, you may have to take a break from the sport until the tendon heals.
