You don't have to be a tennis player or golfer to develop a painful case of elbow tendinitis, also known as "tennis elbow" or the less common "golfer's elbow." 

Elbow tendinitis is a type of inflammation that particularly strikes people who do a lot of activities that use the thumbs and two forefingers to grip. Knitters, musicians, and many other people who use their hands extensively can get the condition.

Yale Medicine Orthopedics & Rehabilitation provides advanced treatments and techniques for elbow tendinitis that are not widely available elsewhere.
