"Tennis elbow" is a common term for a condition caused by overuse of arm, forearm and hand muscles that results in elbow pain. You don't have to play tennis to get this, but it can be a significant problem for some tennis players. Tennis elbow is caused by either abrupt or subtle injury of the muscle and tendon area around the outside of the elbow. Tennis elbow specifically involves the area where the muscles and tendons of the forearm attach to the outside bony area of the elbow
The elbow (olecranon) bursa lies between the loose skin and the pointy bone at the back of the elbow. Normally, this bursa is flat; If it becomes irritated or inflamed, more fluid will accumulate in the bursa and bursitis will develop. Elbow bursitis can occur for a number of reasons:
Trauma - a hard blow to the tip of the elbow, causing excess fluid and swell
Prolonged pressure - leaning on the tip of the elbow for long periods of time
