Tennis elbow (also known as lateral epicondylopathy) is a painful condition that happens when the tendons in your elbow are overloaded and used more than they can handle. This can be from classically doing too many one handed back hand shots in tennis, but more commonly from things that require lots of hand gripping like gardening, lifting weights, and even just keyboard typing!
Gluteal Tendinopathy is a common condition that causes pain in the buttock and hip which can often travel down your leg. This can be from irritation of the hip tendons from doing too much too soon, or too little for too long, which causes them to become painful. Managing this condition should start with avoiding any aggravating activities, settling the pain, then slowly building the strength and endurance of the tendons.
