Elbow pain generally results from overuse injuries as many sports, hobbies, and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist, and arm movements. It not only keeps you from enjoying sports like golf and tennis but can be extremely disruptive to normal daily activities as well. The most common types of elbow pain are “tennis elbow” and “golfer’s elbow.” Tennis Elbow makes it challenging to grip objects while Golfer’s Elbow causes pain on the inside of the elbow joint.
