Have you ever felt pain or tenderness on the outside of your elbow after a tennis match? Or maybe the inside of your elbow feels stiff and sensitive after a long day out on the golf course? If so, you might be suffering from tennis elbow (also known as lateral epicondylitis) or golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis). Both are common conditions that affect many people and can be very painful.
