WHAT IS TENNIS ELBOW?
Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is an overuse injury similar to golfer’s elbow (on the inside of the arm) but causing pain on the outside of the elbow instead. It is sometimes known as the Butcher’s elbow. Any repetitive motion movement though that continually extends the wrist throughout the day (i.e. painting, dentistry, etc.) can cause these muscles to become inflamed.
Adjustments can be made to the Ulnar / Radial Head joint and can have great results. Rapid Release and Graston therapy are then used to loosen up the surrounding muscle to prevent further pull on the elbow. Kinesiology tape can also be applied instead of an elbow brace for light bracing of the muscle. Daily stretching habits and applying ice to the elbow are highly recommended as home therapies.
