What causes Tennis Elbow Pain? What makes it hurt? Why won’t it just go away for good?
Elbows are joints just like knees and their purpose is to rotate, flex and support the body weight when needed. Excessive pressure and continuous action can hurt the elbows and knees.
We usually think about this kind of pain as coming from injury. Sometimes it does. Tendonitis pain can either come from actual wear and tear damage to a tendon, or it can feel exactly as bad and can be just as debilitating without any actual damage.
