Elbow And Shoulder Injuries In Tennis

From Yahoo Sports Singapore: Tennis elbow occurs very uncommonly in professional players or experienced players. In particular, when the backhand is played using much of wrist movement, rather than a single flowing motion of the turning body, together with a properly positioned shoulder and elbow, with the racquet held with a firm wrist – this is when one becomes susceptible to tennis elbow. The diagnosis of tennis elbow is mainly a clinical one.

Yes, “Tennis Elbow occurs very uncommonly in professional players or experienced players.” Statistically, that’s true.

And the biomechanical technique-related description of the cause of the injury sounds right to me…

But having personally treated many experienced tennis players with Tennis Elbow (and Golfer’s Elbow) I think it’s more accurate to say that the injury is uncommon – but not “very” uncommon – among that population.

(So don’t be too surprised if you’re an experienced tennis player and you end up with Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow!)
