Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow. Racket sports like tennis and pickleball tend to be a major cause for this type of injury and elbow pain, but any heavy use of the elbow with repetitive gripping and lifting can also cause this condition.
