Tennis Elbow | Diagnosis & Tests


How is tennis elbow diagnosed?

Your doctor will ask you questions about what types of activities cause pain in your elbow. He or she will apply pressure on different parts of your arm to check for pain and stiffness. They may also ask you to move your arm, elbow, wrist and fingers. He or she may take an X-ray of your elbow to make sure your pain isn’t due to a break or a fracture.
