There’s nothing like the thwack of the ball or the thrill of returning an impossible shot. Tennis is a fast-paced game of agility, power and concentration. It’s not unusual to be a little sore after an intense match, and you can handle that at home. But if you start to feel a sharp little “ow” that won’t go away — or worse, a sudden painful pop — that’s when it’s time to call us.
It’s common for tennis injuries to strike the upper extremities where swings take place. After all, there’s a reason why lateral epicondylitis is nicknamed “tennis elbow.” Of course, injuries in the lower extremities are not unusual either and may be caused by hard sprints with quick stops or changes in direction.
