Tennis elbow is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in your elbow are overworked, usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. Despite its name, most cases of tennis elbow occur in people who don’t play tennis! In fact only 5% of people who play tennis get Tennis elbow.
Tennis elbow is usually caused by the repetitive use of the forearm extensor muscles, especially if they weren’t used much previously. The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of your elbow and might spread into your forearm and wrist. It could also cause weakness when twisting or grabbing objects.
Misalignment in the spine, neck, shoulders and elbow itself might be the main cause of tennis elbow and with the right chiropractic and physiotherapy treatment your elbow function will be restored.
