Many people who play racket sports, or just do jobs that require repetitive arm movements, can suffer from "Tennis Elbow". So that speaks for itself why it is called tennis elbow even if the person has never been on a tennis court. Try to stop the pain.
Did you realise that:
- The incorrect grip can aggravate the tendons in the forearm. Unfortunately to havethe correct grip, it is necessary to have the correct swing.
- Holding the racket grip too tightly can strain the muscles. Try the idea of Hit and Grip, then Relax, to minimise the tension in the arm.
- Having a grip handle that is too small causes the fingers and hand to strain/cramp. Try building up the grip handle a little bigger (insulation tape is a good material for that)then put on a new grip.
- Hitting the ball with a dropped wrist (goose neck) extends the tendons, which in turn pull at the joints.
- If the technique remains the same (incorrect), it will be difficult to permanently get rid of a sore elbow.
Speak to a Coach, and if the problem persists consult a Sports Physiotherapist.How to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here...
