1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Tennis elbow is considered a overuse injury.
That means that the rate of tissue injury exceeds the body's ability to heal it. The tissue breakdown is cumulative, resulting in chronic pain. Patients typically complain olateral elbow pain, worse with grasping with palm facing down.
