Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow is due to the irritation of tendons on the outside of the elbow. These tendons can become irritated with a variety of activities, not just playing tennis.

In fact, often simple lifting of objects such as purses, briefcases, and toolboxes, can contribute to the painful symptoms experienced by patients who have tennis elbow.

Knowing the proper way to lift these objects can help patients avoid painful symptoms, and allow the body to heal the tendons damaged in patients with tennis elbow.
