My husband think I have tennis elbow. As silly as this may sound, I don't play tennis - or any other sports. How can I have tennis elbow?
That's not a silly question at all. One would think that tennis elbow is caused by playing tennis - and it is. But it is also caused by any repetitious movement of the elbow or wrist.
The pain from tennis elbow is on the outside of the elbow, and if you do anything that repeats, like using a screwdriver, lifting, and playing racquet sports, you can develop tennis elbow.
