Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, has many different causes.
Tennis elbow is a general condition which comes from strain or overuse the elbow joint and surrounding tendons.
Many tennis players and participants in other types of sports where the forearm or elbow is used extensively experience tennis elbow.
If you’re experiencing any of the following, you may have tennis elbow:
1. Pain in the outside part of your elbow
2. Weakness in your wrist
3. Difficulty with elbow flexibility
4. A burning sensation around your elbow
5. Pain when gripping items
The overuse of your elbow inflames the tendons that connect the muscle to the bones, causing painful symptoms.
Chiropractic has been known to help resolve elbow issues. Sometimes the problem is actually in the wrist, shoulder or spine. The only way to know for sure is a thorough examination.
We can also recommend other options, such as icing the area or refraining from the irritating activity; helping your elbow to heal and getting you back on the tennis court!
