Tennis elbow? But I don't even play tennis!

Tennis elbow?  But I don't even play tennis!

Bottom line:

Did you know… tennis elbow isn't just for athletes.

Lateral epicondylitis – or tennis elbow - is a painful condition that occurs when the tendons in your elbow become inflamed and overloaded as a result of repetitive motion.
Because the repetitive motion that occurs is similar to that of swinging a tennis racket, it's commonly referred to as tennis elbow.
However, anyone who has a job characterized by similar repetitive arm motions may be at risk.

Why it Matters:

Tennis elbow is often characterized by some pain and weakness, and that can make it difficult to perform
your daily tasks.
Because tennis elbow is an injury caused by repetitive - perhaps essential - motions, finding ways to
decrease the inflammation and improve your biomechanics is especially important.
Here are 3 natural ways to help reduce the pain associated with tennis elbow …
 Rest. Giving your arm time to rest is important to stop the cascade of inflammation and pain.
 Ice. Icing a few times per hour is a smart strategy to reduce pain and inflammation.
 Technique. Be mindful of how you are moving your arm, use proper ergonomics, and use a brace
for a short time if necessary.

Next Steps:

Tennis elbow is usually not a condition that will go away on its own.
However, we've found two key strategies for reducing the pain associated with tennis below.
The first is creating a plan of care that includes at-home exercises to strengthen your supporting muscles.
The second is performing chiropractic adjustments, when necessary, to improve the motion and
movement of your elbow joints.
So, if you or someone you know is living with tennis elbow, give us a call.
Together, we’ll create an individualized care plan focused on helping you find lasting relief, naturally.

Dr. Andrea has been a lifelong advocate of chiropractic care ever since she saw the difference it made in her younger sister’s life when she was just a child. After her sister was diagnosed with epilepsy and prescribed medication to treat the condition — which turned her into a shell of her former self — Andrea watched in amazement as chiropractic treatments stopped her sister’s seizures and negated her need for medication. From that moment on, Andrea knew she wanted to be a chiropractor so she could share the body’s amazing ability to heal itself with as many people as she can.
