Overuse inflammation: Tennis elbow, aka lateral epicondylitis, is inflammation of the origin of the wrist extensor tendons. These muscles start on the outside of the elbow and go past the wrist. We use these muscles all day, everyday. Little injuries usually heal during rest. If they don't heal 100%, these little injuries add up over time. Adequate treatment should result in full recovery, a normal feel.

See details: A tennis elbow band can help. Google exercises for tennis elbow. If these fail a cortisone injection can resolve the issue.
