Abstract

In a recent clinical study of 84 of the world’s best tennis players, elbow injuries in significant numbers, marked increases in muscle and bone dimensions in the dominant upper extremity, and pronounced postural assymetry of the shoulders were found. These findings are striking when one considers that in the United States alone approximately 11.5 million people play tennis and that pain in the region of the lateral humeral epicondyle, or “tennis elbow,” poses an unsolved problem.
