Tennis Elbow vs. Golfer's Elbow?
The only difference between the two conditions is where the elbow is inflamed. Both are forms of inflammation of the tendons and muscle strains in the elbow. Tennis Elbow affects the outside of the elbow, and on the contrary, Golfer's Elbow affects the inside. It's possible to have one or both conditions at the same time. The good news is, the treatment is almost exactly the same.
