Tennis elbow pain
I play badminton as a routine of my life. While playing one or two matches i dont feel pain in my elbow . If the game continues for two or more the pain gets worst and i even cant hold my racquet grip. I do smashes a lot . When i get back home i cant even lift a paper with the hands that i use for badminton. I have attatched a photo where my pain is severe now a days. I do get some rest and apply ice to the affected area. But the problem continues from next days when i go out to play. So i want to know is there a problem with my technique of play or the racquet or some other thing . Please assist me with this issue. Waiting for a reply that cures my problem.

This could be a case of tennis elbow (overuse injury) of your forearm muscles. During the play, either your gripping technique or your shoulder force is not right and that’s causing the forearm muscles to work extra. Thus causing pain. You need to visit a physiotherapist to take care of the inflammation and then evaluate the cause (shoulder force or gripping) to eliminate the cause of the pain completely. Just taking care of the pain is not the solution.
Next Steps
Visit a good physiotherapist.
Health Tips
Try to avoid playing till you solve the problem. This could aggravate.

If the pain is localised to the outer part of the elbow and that prohibits u from playing, then it’s a condition known as tennis elbow. But like u said that ur strength goes down and u are unable to lift even smallest of things, it points towards compression of a nerve , the radial nerve. Nevertheless, to come to a fixed diagnosis, you need to get evaluated. Book an appointment and get it examined
