Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is an extremely painful condition caused by overuse of the tendons in your elbow. This is a very common injury for tennis players and any athlete who actively overuses their arm. However, people who are not athletes can also develop this condition. Professions that involve this type of movement can include plumbers, painters, and carpenters. If you have developed tennis elbow, Flowers Physical Therapy can help!

What is Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow develops when the tendons in your elbow are stressed due to continuous movement of the wrist or arm. Overusing the tendons can cause tears and inflammation in muscles surrounding the elbow.
