They are commonly seen in Racket players, Javelin throwers, Cricketers, Tennis and Golf Players. It can also be an occupational hazard where strong forearm muscle contraction is required while gripping a heavy object and therefore, is commonly seen in people who are manual workers such as carpenters, plumbers, butchers and painters. Basically, the origin of extensor group of the muscle arising at the lateral (outer) condyle gets inflamed. Remedies include: 1. Ice – Ice the painful elbow. This can help reduce symptoms but may not completely eliminate them. 2. Use of forearm bands can help reduce the force transmitted on the elbow while gripping. 3.
