Tennis Elbow is inflammation of the tendons of the elbow (epicondylitis) caused by overuse of the muscles of the forearm. Tennis elbow is usually caused by activities that overuse the tendons and muscles in your forearm that straighten and raise your hand and wrist. Examples of these activities are tennis and other racket sports, carpentry, machine work, computer work, and knitting. Tennis elbow may also be caused by a sudden injury that twists or tears your tendon.
