Have you ever heard of lateral epicondylitis? Or perhaps tennis elbow may sound more familiar. Believe it or not, in the US there are over 200.000 cases of lateral epicondylitis per year, and it is a very common injury word wide. The main syndrome to identify if you have tennis elbow is a pain where your forearm meets the elbow. The pain is due to the inflammation of the tendons or muscles caused by repetitive motion, hence its name.
