In brief: Epicondylitis

Tennis elbow is when the insertion of the muscles on the outside of your forearm gets irritated.
Several muscles attach at one insertion which can become inflamed and even torn with repetitive or overstrenuous use. It is called tennis elbow because it can be seen in tennis players but it actually occurs in all types of patients.
