One of the most common injuries we see at the clinic is tennis elbow. It’s important to learn how to deal with injuries and pain but it’s just as important to know how to protect yourself from getting injured.

According to researcher H. William Gruchow it is estimated that one-half of all tennis players suffer with tennis elbow.

  • In a study in the American Journal of Sports medicine, Gruchow analysed 500 tennis players and measured their incidence of sustaining tennis elbow.
  • It was revealed that age, training time and grip size were all factors causing the injury.

Common symptoms of tennis elbow include tenderness and pain of the forearm that is induced by gripping and resistive movements of the wrist, throbbing to agonising pain. Tennis elbow isn’t restricted to the elbow either, as the pain can often be felt in the shoulder.

To reduce your chance of tennis elbow changing racket, altering stroke and exercising to build up muscle strength are vital for preventing injury.
