The elbow is easily irritated especially with a sudden increase in activity. Now with summer upon us, many people suffer elbow injuries by introducing new outdoor activities. The best advice that I can give is to start slowly and build the elbow up to intense activity. This way you elbow can get used to the new activity.
Athletes from Serena Williams to Kobe Bryant have all sustained elbow injuries. In many cases, these sorts of injuries are derived from introducing the elbow to new movements after a period of inactivity.
