Chronic elbow pain
Chronic elbow pain develops gradually over time. The athlete is unlikely to be able to pinpoint the exact time the injury occurred. Injuries can develop following an acute injury, which failed to heal properly. They are most common are golfers or tennis elbow where there is an injury to either the inside (medial) or outside (lateral) of the muscles / tendons that make your wrist flex or extend causing epicondylitis. This is where the group of flexor or extensor muscles inserts to the elbow and are common with sports requiring lifting or rackets and sticks.
