Tennis elbow

Lateral epicondylitis or lateral epicondylalgia, known colloquially as tennis elbow, shooter's elbow, and archer's elbow or simply lateral elbow pain, is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender.


  • Pain on the outer part of the elbow

  • Point tenderness over the lateral epicondyle—a prominent part of the bone on the outside of the elbow

  • Pain from gripping and movements of the wrist, especially wrist extension and lifting movements

  • Pain from activities that use the muscles that extend  the wrist (e.g., pouring a container of liquid, lifting with the palm down)

  • Morning stiffness


Golfers Elbow

Golfer's elbow, or medial epicondylitis, is an inflammatory condition of the medial epicondyle of the elbow. It is in some ways similar to tennis elbow.


  • Pain and tenderness on the inner side of your elbow. Sometimes the pain extends along the inner side of your forearm.

  • Stiffness. Your elbow may feel stiff, and it may hurt to make a fist.

  • Weakness. You may have weakness in your hands and wrists.

  • Numbness or tingling. Many people with golfer's elbow experience numbness or a tingling sensation that radiates into one or more fingers — usually the ring and little fingers.
