Tennis elbow

As tennis elbow is caused by overusing the tendon that connects your wrist muscles to the outer side of your elbow joint, the key to preventing the condition is to take care when carrying out activities or sports that place pressure on the tendon.

It takes time for your body to get used to a new activity and due to their poorer blood supply, tendons take longer than muscles to adapt. So, it’s important to pace yourself and if in doubt, take advice from an experienced sports trainer.
