Abstract or Summary
  • Despite dramatic changes in tennis equipment and technique, more than 30% of recreational tennis players suffer from lateral elbow pain ("tennis elbow"). Certain kinematic and electromyographic characteristics in backhand strokes have been implicated as major factors responsible for lateral elbow pain. From a local tennis club, 22 recreational players who were rated 3.0 to 5.0 skill level (intermediate to advanced) by United States Tennis Association criteria participated in this study. Either one-handed or two-handed backhand ground stroke techniques were used by the subjects according to their preference. Half of the subjects for each technique had lateral elbow pain related to playing tennis. Four groups (one-handed and two-handed technique with and without elbow pain) were analyzed in terms of kinematic and electromyographic characteristics. A three-dimensional kinematic analysis was performed using data obtained with 60 Hz videography. Electromyographic data were collected using a telemetered electromyography (EMG) system at 100 Hz through surface electrodes.
