Which option is best for your arm?
We’ve all heard of the expression “tennis elbow.” It’s a common arthritis-related pain that develops in the elbow region. Studies have confirmed that racquets laced with higher tension create a further effect of tennis elbow in the player, which is why you want to tread cautiously with a tense, high-tensioned racquet.
Be mindful which racquet you choose and make sure to change your strings frequently. A string isn’t broken, just when it is broken. Once the Elasticity is gone, players compensate through their muscle which leads to inflammation in the elbow region.
What is the best tennis string tension?
Generally, tennis tension ranges from 40 to 65 pounds / 18 – 27 kg depending upon your strength and preference. The tension should not work against your physical abilities and performance, which means your racket should be providing power, comfort, absorption, precision, and control. If you feel little control, less precision, frequent injuries, or less power, then it’s worth considering a new tension.
