A: Pain in most often on the outside (lateral) of your elbow and is made worse with making a fist, lifting, or raising your wrist upward (extension). It is called tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis. Physical Therapy can help with decreasing the pain and strengthening muscles associated with the wrist and elbow.
