Now the first cause of these conditions occurs when there’s too much stress placed on the tendons creating micro-trauma and an inflammatory process occurs and keeps re-occuring.

This creates a loop where the scar tissue that becomes lodged in these tendons and this can happen when you’re shoveling or when you’re using your cell phone or too much computer use or things you don’t normally think that would cause this would do.

Another cause of this condition is thought to be from the gender of processes in the tendons. A process called tendonosis.  Fibers are broken down and replaced with scar tissue. I like to use the analogy of you have a plaster wall in a hole in it and you’re trying to fill it with joint compound but joint compound is not the same as the plaster.

So it’s not gonna retain the same properties. And this gets in the way it creates inflammation at the tendon. The third cause of tennis and golfer’s elbow seems to be from direct trauma to this area.

If you’ve ever had a fractured elbow, there’s some evidence that the tendons in this area may be susceptible to a higher incidence of golf or tennis elbow.
