Tennis Elbow – Causes, Symptoms & Treatments

Repetitive Movements

In addition to athletes, many other professions might also be at risk of developing tennis elbow. This condition would occur after you perform any forms of activities that involve repeatedly extending and twisting the wrist or forearm muscles. These include using scissors, bricklaying, and plumbing, typing, using a roller or paintbrush, using shears, and throwing something. The risk is especially high when you do these activities for the first time or after a long time of stopping. In fact, the number of reported cases caused by this trigger is higher than playing sports. [2]
