Ask a Doctor: Tennis elbow affects many

Wed, Mar 28, 2018

Don’t let the name fool you. Tennis elbow affects more than just tennis players.

 

“It’s a condition caused by long-term repetitive arm movements resulting in inflammation of the elbow’s tendons and, in some cases, small tears,” says Dr. Carl A. DiRaimondo, an orthopedic surgeon with Orthopedics & Sports Medicine BayCare Clinic. He sees patients in Manitowoc.

Golfers, baseball players, landscapers, painters, assembly-line workers and butchers are among those at risk for tennis elbow, says DiRaimondo.
