New York tennis elbow also known as Lateral Epicondylitis is the #1 ailment of the upper body.
But tennis elbow is not unique to tennis players only. When immense strain is placed on the muscles of the forearm (wrist extensor group), it can cause tennis elbow. Hence, this ailment is often seen in tennis players, carpenters, secretaries, manual laborers and a host of other jobs. So any activity which requires repetitive wrist extension is intrinsically what causes tennis elbow, according to Dr. Jay Handt and Dr. Josh Handt. In 90% of tennis elbow conditions, pain is localized in the tendo periosteal junction where the common extensor tendon originates (outer area of the elbow). Other symptoms of tennis elbow include radiating pain to the back of the forearm and wrist area; some patients may have this.
The problem with NY tennis elbow is that it takes a long time to heal due to the lack of a tendon sheath. The common extensor origin resembles a muscle more than a tendon, but its blood supply is not adequate and thus, it cannot get nutrition from the fluid that is found within a tendon sheath.
