Repetitive arm motions, like those made in many sports and day-to-day activities, can cause damage to extensor carpi radialis brevis (ECRB) muscle, which is near the outer elbow. The ECRB muscle is critical to arm bending and wrist straightening as well as other wrist, arm, and hand movements.
Because outer elbow pain and tennis elbow are typically caused by the overuse of the elbow joints or tendons, athletes who participate in arm-centric sports such as tennis and racket sports, golf, swimming, rowing, baseball, and weightlifting are all at risk for straining the elbow or inflaming the ECRB. Elbow pain and elbow injuries are somewhat common among workers in the construction, manufacturing, painting, and culinary industries too.
People managing an outer elbow injury can expect to feel a dull ache, tenderness, or a burning feeling in the elbow itself, but the pain may spread to or be experienced solely in the wrist, fingers, or neck. Injured people will often report pain in the outside or lateral part of the arm, pain in the back of the forearm, elbow pain when straightening the arm, or pain when lifting the arm. The elbow bone might appear swollen or inflamed, and it may be difficult or painful to grip objects, lift items, or make minute movements, such as typing or turning a screwdriver.
