Chiropractic Care for Tennis Elbow in Clermont

Tennis elbow is a repetitive motion injury that involves the ECRB muscle and tendon, which connects to the lateral epicondyle. For this reason, tennis elbow is often referred to as lateral epicondylitis. During, heavy, extended, repetitive use over time, the tendon can develop tears, which results in pain when using the arm or flexing and extending the elbow. Chiropractic care for tennis elbow can help alleviate your pain and heal the injury.

Tennis Elbow Causes

Tennis elbow commonly occurs in individuals that play racquet sports, like tennis, badminton or racquetball, but it can occur in anyone who repeatedly uses their forearm muscles. Common professions that can cause tennis elbow include electricians, plumbers, carpenters and painters.

Symptoms of Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow primarily causes pain along the outside of the elbow and a decrease in the grip strength of the affected arm. You may also notice pain when you try to turn a door handle or hold a glass.

Chiropractic Care in Clermont for Tennis Elbow

Chiropractic care in Clermont for tennis elbow is conservative care. This means that our chiropractor strives to diagnose the extent of your injury and design a non-invasive treatment program to heal that injury.

Treatment always starts with a thorough diagnosis. Our chiropractor, Dr. Kurt Michaux, will want to know if you play any sports or work in a career field that is known for elbow injuries. He may also recommend an x-ray to look for any additional problems with the structure of your elbow, like arthritis. Once the cause and extent of your elbow injury is known, he will recommend a treatment program to lower your pain and inflammation and heal the injury.

Ice and Heat Therapy

The line of treatment is often ice and heat therapy. Ice or cryotherapy helps reduce inflammation and swelling, which can help lower your pain. Heat therapy warms the area to promote localized blood flow, which ensures your elbow gets the oxygen and nutrients it needs to heal.

Chiropractic Adjustments

A misalignment in the elbow joint can result in incorrect movement, which can put stress on the elbow joint and surrounding soft tissues. Correcting the misalignment helps restore joint function.

Corrective Exercises and Lifestyle Adjustments

If you have had elbow pain for a while, your forearm muscle may be weak. Corrective exercises can help rebuild the strength and flexibility in your forearm. Our chiropractor may also want to check your form. Playing sports or working with incorrect posture or form can aggravate your elbow and lead to more repetitive motion injuries.
