What is Tennis Elbow?

The condition known as tennis elbow is not confined to tennis players. In fact, it comes as a shock to many people that lateral epicondylosis, better known as tennis elbow, can be developed by people who have never used a tennis racket. The term tennis elbow came about simply because frequent tennis players are more prone to this condition than others. It has to do with the repetitive motion involved when moving the arm and elbow in certain ways. 

The condition develops out of overuse and muscle strain in a localized spot. Specifically, it’s caused by repetitive motion that includes contraction of the muscles in your forearm that are used when you straighten and raise your arm. If you think about the motions that tennis players use to serve the tennis ball and hit it, you can easily understand why it’s called tennis elbow and how this condition can develop.

What Are The Symptoms of Tennis Elbow?

The symptoms of tennis elbow are:

  • Intense pain when performing the straightening and lifting motion mentioned above
  • Inability to fully straighten the arm
  • Intense pain localized at the site of the elbow
  • Inability to perform common motions, like turning a doorknob, shaking hands, or holding a drinking glass

Tennis elbow can be more debilitating than it sounds. Worse, over the counter medications typically do not work to eliminate tennis elbow. It’s important to visit your chiropractor for effective and lasting tennis elbow treatment.

Chiropractor Treatment For Tennis Elbow

When you visit Dr. Phillips for treatment for tennis elbow, they may manipulate the elbow joint to diagnose and treat the condition. You will also be given at-home instructions that will include not using the arm for a period of time. Be sure to follow your chiropractor’s instructions for the best results.
