Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylalgia) typically involves pain in the region of the lateral elbow where the common tendon for a number of the wrist extensor muscles attaches. Like other tendon issues, resistance training appears to be helpful in many cases for both reducing painful symptoms and improving the work capacity of the muscles and tendons.
Contrary to popular belief, tennis elbow is not experienced only be tennis players. This type of pain is actually quite common in the general population and usually reported to range from being sharp in nature to dull and achy with movements that cause the wrist extensors muscles to contract strongly or in a repeated fashion. Such activities might include typing, writing, carrying various items and racket sports.
