Golfer's Elbow and Tennis Elbow are injuries to the tendons of the elbow. Injuries to the tendons attaching the forearm muscles to the bone at the elbow result in a painful condition when the elbow is moved or rotated. When the pain originates from the outer part of the elbow, it is called lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow and when it stems from the inner part of the elbow, it is called medial epicondylitis. It's not true that only tennis players get tennis elbow and golfers suffer from golfer's elbow. Any athlete is susceptible to such painful conditions affecting the elbows.
