Tennis Elbow & Golfer’s Elbow

The muscles responsible for extending your wrist and fingers share a one common tendon which originates on the lateral (outside) side of your elbow.  An irritation or strain of this tendon is classified as Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis).  The same can be said about the muscles which flex your wrist and fingers (and also share a single common tendon) except that condition is referred to as Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis).  The biggest reason one gets either of these conditions surprisingly isnt from tennis or golf, it most commonly presents from too much typing, mousing, gaming, griping and gardening.
