  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is swelling of the tendons that bend your wrist backward away from your palm.

    A tendon is a tough cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones. The tendon most likely involved in tennis elbow is called the exterior carpi radialis brevis. Tennis elbow is usually diagnosed in both men and women between ages 30 to 50.
