What Causes Elbow Pain After Playing Tennis?

default
Posted on Thu, 20 Oct 2016
Question: I have a pain in my right elbow area. This pain started when I was playing tennis 2 months back. Still I can feel some pain when I try to bend my elbow or stretch it. Also I have a pain in my right leg around the thighs and above the knee. Not sure when it started, but I was playing volleyball some 2-3 months back and had fallen once, so maybe it is due to that.
Please let me know on what should be done to cure the same.
