In brief: Tennis elbow

Tennis elbow is the most common cause of lateral elbow pain.
Diagnosis is made by history (pain over outside of elbow, worse picking up with palm facing down), and examination (tenderness over outer part of elbow, pain with resisted extension of the wrist). If symptoms present for more than month, despite rest, ice, and nsaids, see an orthopedic specialist for consultation.
