Did you know that you can develop tennis elbow without ever setting foot on a tennis court? A large number of tennis elbow cases and other types of tendonitis like jumper’s knee and golfer’s elbow develop as a result of bad form during weightlifting and other workout activities.
Bad form in the gym during lifting weights, squatting, jumping and even using the treadmill or stair stepper can cause muscles and joints to work in ways they weren’t intended. This improper use can wear down connective tissue over time, causing pain, inflammation and even loss of use or mobility. Dr. Budler sees many cases of tendonitis in different joints caused by bad form during exercise.
