– Hey guys, Scott from PlayYourCourt.com and today we’re gonna show you some simple things you can
do to avoid tennis elbow. – Hey guys, so today we’re
talking about tennis elbow, and let me first preface this video; I am not a doctor so the things
that I’m telling you today are just based on what I’ve
seen with my past students, what I’ve seen cause tennis
elbow and what I’ve seen help relieve it in my
own personal experiences. So, take this with a grain of salt. Very simple concept here. If you flex at contact, that’s when you typically see
injury in any sport, alright? So when I make contact with my forehand, for example, if I’m very flexed, and you can even feel tension
in the top of your forearm right where most players get tennis elbow. If you’re really flexing
at contact on your forehand or (grunts) flexing at
contact on your serve, this is where you’re gonna start to, over time, experience pain where people most commonly experience tennis elbow. So, as simple of a video as this is, what I want you to think about at contact, on your serve, on your
backhand, on your forehand, the volley really the only exception here, I want you to think about
having a relaxed hand and letting that racket
move through the ball. Don’t try and muscle it. That’s where I see the large
majority of injuries come from, and where a lot of tennis
players that I work with experience this tennis elbow pain. So in summary, try and
stay relaxed at contact, on your serve, your overheads,
your ground strokes. Your volleys being the one exception, where you’re gonna quickly
squeeze at contact; but everything else in tennis, try and stay relaxed at contact. If your muscles are relaxed, you’re not gonna experience
nearly as much stress, and I think you’ll have a lot easier time avoiding tennis elbow. I hope this video helps. As you guys know, at PlayYourCourt, we just wanna see you

  2. This is also often by people being weak specifically in their forarms. Doing simple grip, pronation, supination exercises can treat/ prevent this.
    This dsnt happen so much you developed while playing tennis but can occur when an adult or a bone active person picks ups the sport.

  3. In my experience with my own past tennis elbow problems, I solved it by using a head-light racquet. Where the balance of the racquet is slightly more towards the handle. I guess it has to do with far lesser centrifugal force…or some such reason. You lose power to some extent, but for me, that's a small price to pay
