Elbow injuries.

Author information

Mississippi Sports Medicine Center (LDF), Jackson, USA.


Injuries about the elbow are common in racquet sports. Lateral epicondylitis is seen most often, but symptoms can arise from other sources including the medial elbow and the articular surfaces themselves. Medial elbow symptoms can result from medial epicondylitis, medial collateral ligament injury, ulnar nerve trauma, or any combination of these injuries. Careful evaluation of medial elbow pain is required to define the causes. Proper technique, conditioning, and equipment are also important in reducing the risk of injury to the elbow.
