    everytime i swing a simple forehand, i get a pressure in my forearm bone. its the bone/ muscle near the ulna bone. does anyone know how to fix it? maybe its from the shock vibration. im getting from my tennis racket. I dont think it could be due to old age either, since im still fairly young.

    I think tennis & golfers elbow is the same thing, just synonyms

    To fix the tennis elbow, consider if your swinging correctly or if the racquet is too light/head heavy, heavy, or stiff.
