Tennis Elbow Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for tennis elbow. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "tennis elbow" is rarely designed with the resulting "tennis elbow" exclusively in mind.
