What causes tennis elbow?
A strain injury to the tendon at the outer portion of
the elbow causes tennis elbow. While this can occur by straining during a backhand tennis shot, it
can also occur from many repetitive activities that can strain the elbow. These
activities include using a screwdriver or work that includes similar motions, Frisbee
disc throwing, and lifting objects by extending the wrist, etc.
