Tennis elbow is a classic repetitive strain injury. Repetitive strain injury a combination of chronic exhaustion and irritation in the muscles and tendons on the back of the arm and the outside of the elbow, which extend the wrist and fingers. Hotter, sharper pain right at the elbow often indicates a classic case dominated by tendon trouble. Duller, more aching pain, spread more evenly around the back of the arm, usually suggests that muscle pain may be more dominant. Cases dominated by muscle pain may be much more treatable. Treatment for this condition may vary on what the condition presents. Click the video to see how Maria breaks down an evaluation for Tennis Elbow.
