Defending Your Game: A Guide to Common Tennis Injuries

Tennis Brisbane

Tennis is a thrilling sport that demands agility, precision, and stamina. However, like any physical activity, it comes with its fair share of risks. We’ll explore some of the most common tennis injuries and provide you with valuable tips on how to prevent them, ensuring you stay in top form on and off the court.

  1. Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis):
    • Tennis elbow is a condition that causes pain and inflammation on the outer side of the elbow. It is often the result of repetitive arm motion, such as the backhand stroke in tennis.
  2. Shoulder Injuries:
    • Rotator cuff injuries and shoulder impingement are common among tennis players due to the overhead nature of serves and overhead shots.
  3. Knee Injuries (Patellar Tendinitis):
    • Patellar tendinitis, or jumper’s knee, can occur in tennis players due to the constant jumping and sudden stops during play.
  4. Ankle Sprains:
    • Quick lateral movements and sudden stops make tennis players prone to ankle sprains.
  5. Back Injuries:
    • The rotational movements in tennis, especially during serves and powerful groundstrokes, can contribute to back injuries.

Tennis injuries are an unfortunate part of the game, but with the right precautions, you can significantly reduce your risk. Remember to prioritise proper technique, warm-ups, and strength training to keep yourself injury-free and enjoy the game for years to come.
