See the list below:

  • Attention to proper form and technique will decrease the risk of developing tendinosis of the lateral elbow extensor muscles.

  • Proper equipment, (ie, size and weight of racquet, size of grip, dry balls)

  • Improved conditioning, improved core strength

  • Gradual increase in intensity and duration of activity
