Tennis elbow is a condition that affects the elbow which can be quite painful. It’s also known as lateral epicondylitis and can affect individuals other than tennis players. It’s common in people who perform repetitive motion with their elbows, such as golfers, painters, carpenters and others individuals who use their arms.
Tennis elbow occurs when the tendon along the outside of the elbow moves unnaturally, causing inflammation and irritation. One way to help prevent the tendon from moving out of place is by wearing tennis elbow braces. They apply gentle compression on the elbow to give it extra support and alleviates the pain.
