Symptoms tennis elbow
In case of a tennis elbow, pain at the bone protrusion on the outer side of the elbow emerges that worsens by gripping or holding something, e.g., a teapot, with stretched arms. Pain occurs especially at the outer forearm and can radiate into the upper arm around the elbow. The range of motion while flexing or stretching the elbow may be limited. Patients suffering from a tennis elbow for a longer period of time sometimes have a small swelling on the outer side of the elbow. Additionally, the extensor muscles of the forearm can be painfully tense.
