Elbow Pain Causes

Lateral Epicondylitis

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is one of the most common triggers of elbow pain. It is a condition that inflames the tendon attaching the forearm muscles with the elbow bone. People who use the forearm muscles excessively can be vulnerable to developing tennis elbow. These include plumbers, painters, weightlifters, and tennis or badminton players. The pain tends to be burning and occurs gradually. Physical activities involved the use of forearms would worsen the symptoms. Therefore, you should avoid holding a racquet, mixing flour, or turning an object to reduce the risk. [2]
