Tennis elbow

Tennis elbow affects between 1 and 3% of the adult population, mainly between 35 and 65 years old. The pain is often progressive and is manifested in gestures of daily or professional life: when you tighten a sponge, you make a setback in tennis, or when you have a manual job ... It is a pathology of the prehension and tightening, which requires support.
