In brief: Tennis elbow

The most common cause of elbow pain when gripping comes from lateral epicondytis or tennis elbow.
The pain is on the outside part of the elbow right over the prominent bone than can be easily felt there. Usually goes away on its own but can also take several weeks or even months. Simple stretching can help sometimes an injection can help with the pain.

In brief: Tennis elbow

Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow are painful conditions resulting from overuse and/or repetitive flexing of the muscles in the forearm. The repetitive motions and overuse of the forearm muscles can lead to irritation, inflammation and tearing of the tendons which join the muscles to the elbow joint.
