Tennis Elbow Causes

Font : A-A+

What are the causes of Tennis Elbow ?

Often tennis elbow is caused by repeated strain on the muscles of the forearm that extend the wrist and fingers. Activities such as playing tennis, golf, or repeated twisting or extension of the wrist during work or hobby activities, may strain these muscles.

In rare instances, a direct blow to the elbow may cause this condition.

The inflammation comes on without any definite cause, and this may be due to an arthritis, rheumatism or gout.

Other causes may include a pinched nerve in the neck, referred pain from a shoulder problem, or pressure on the radial nerve in the region of the elbow which is called radial tunnel syndrome.
