Tennis elbow (or lateral epicondylitis) is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender, usually as a result of a specific strain or overuse. While it is called tennis elbow as it is suffered mostly by tennis players, it should be noted that it is by no means restricted to tennis players. Anyone who does a lot of work involving lifting at the elbow joint is susceptible to tennis elbow.
