6 Most Common Sports Injuries

6. Tennis Elbow

Contrary to the name’s suggestion, tennis elbow often occurs in individuals who have never been anywhere near a tennis racket. Instead, the injury is often caused by repetitive stress on the wrist and arm. In fact, this is actually a rather common industrial injury, as the repeated motions that cause tennis elbow are often performed by those in the construction industry.

The good news is that most cases of tennis elbow get better on their own. If rest and anti-inflammatories don’t help, though, you may have to go through physical therapy in order to regain the full range of movement in your arm.
