At Michaux Family Chiropractic, our chiropractor in Clermont treats sports injuries, including tennis elbow. If you are a tennis player facing recovery from this painful injury, learn how our chiropractor can help.
Tennis elbow is a type of overuse injury that commonly affects tennis players. This injury occurs on the outside of your elbow, where the tendons, ligaments and muscles used in backhand swings get strained due to overuse. Interestingly, office workers can also get tennis elbow from the repetitive movements made while typing. Home construction professionals can get tennis elbow from painting or working with hand tools. So this condition is not limited to athletes!
If you have tennis elbow, you usually know it. Symptoms include pain along the outside of the elbow, which can sometime extend as far as the wrist and forearm. The muscles may feel tender as well, due to the inflammation you are experiencing.
This condition usually resolves in months, but that can be a long time when you're sidelined for tennis season. Our care for tennis elbow will speed the pace of healing, to get you back in the game faster.
When you see Dr. Michaux for tennis elbow, we will realign the joints in the elbow. By promoting proper muscle alignment, we will decrease your inflammation and pain. You'll be able to move the elbow freely and enjoy the normal range of motion of the elbow.
Once we have stabilized the elbow joint, we can demonstrate special blueprint exercises and offer ergonomic advice. When you do these exercises, you can stretch and strengthen the joint. This helps reduce the likelihood of future injuries to your elbow. Our lifestyle advice will help you strengthen your game, without putting excess stress on your muscles.
