Q. 4 Tennis elbow is characterized by ‑

Tendinits of common extensor origin

 C

Tendinitis of common flexor origin

 D

Painful flexion and extension

Ans. B

Explanation:

Ans. is ‘b’ i.e., Tendinits of common extensor origin

Tennis elbow is extraarticular affection characterized by pain and acute tenderness at the origin of the extensor muscles of the forearm from the lateral epicondyle.

It is believed to be caused by strain of the forearm extensor muscles, particularly the extensor carpi radialisbrevis, at the point of their origin from lateral epicondyle.
