I suffer on and off from pain in the elbow of my top hand (left hand since I shoot right). It seems to be particularly exacerbated by taking backhand shots. I started practicing the backhand a lot 4-5 years ago and got to the point where I could roof at will. But now I wonder if I gave myself a repetitive stress injury. The pain can go away for a couple of weeks then come back with a vengeance after a single backhand shot. Obviously I stopped practicing the backhand. And I rarely use it anymore in game play. The situation seems manageable. But I'm curious: does anyone else have elbow pain triggered by the backhand?
