Tennis Elbow and How Chiropractic Care Can Help

04 Jul 2024 | Conditions

What is Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow, medically known as lateral epicondylitis, is a common condition that causes pain around the outside of the elbow. It’s not limited to tennis players; anyone who performs repetitive arm, elbow, and wrist movements can develop this painful condition.
Causes:
• Repetitive Motion: Activities that involve repeated arm movements, such as tennis, painting, or even typing.
• Overuse: Overusing the muscles and tendons in the forearm can lead to small tears in the tendons that attach to the lateral epicondyle (the bony prominence on the outside of the elbow).
• Age: Most common in adults between the ages of 30 and 50.
Symptoms:
• Pain and Tenderness: Pain is felt on the outside of the elbow and can extend down the forearm.
• Weak Grip: Difficulty in gripping objects.
• Stiffness: Stiffness in the elbow, especially in the morning.
• Burning Sensation: A burning sensation on the outer part of the elbow.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Tennis Elbow
• Non-Invasive: Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment option that avoids the risks associated with surgery and long-term medication use.
• Holistic Approach: Chiropractic care addresses the whole body, not just the symptoms, promoting overall health and well-being.
• Personalized Treatment: Chiropractors develop personalised treatment plans tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
• Natural Healing: Chiropractic care supports the body’s natural healing processes, encouraging long-term recovery and prevention.
