The condition was initially described in 1873. The name “lawn tennis elbow” first came into use for the condition in 1882.
Around 2 % of the population aged 30-50 will present with these symptoms.
It is not just tennis players, Tennis Elbow is also known as Lateral Epicondylitis or Lateral Elbow Tendinopathy
Our lateral elbow anatomy is made up of a number of components, the key component we have to assess when looking at Tennis elbow is our common wrist extensors. They create a broad tendon that inserts on the outside of the lower part of the humerus.
