Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, involves the muscles and tendons of your forearm.

Your forearm tendons — often called extensors — attach the muscles to bone. They attach on the lateral epicondyle. When the connection point (the tendon) become stressed from over use or excessive load the result is pain and inflammation called lateral epicondylitis. This condition is often caused by chronic repetitive use but also from sudden injuries. The symptoms can range from mild to severe and acute to chronic. Treatment of this condition includes therapy designed to reduce inflammation and repair the damaged tissue.
