How Is Your Elbow - We Can Keep You In The Game


Elbow Pain:  The elbow is often affected from overuse of the hand and wrist with sport activities such as tennis and golf, and work-related professions such as carpentry and construction or excessive use of your computer mouse. 


Classic tennis elbow is due to stress/strain of the wrist extensor muscles that originate at the lateral elbow. Classic golfer’s elbow is due to stress/strain of the wrist flexor muscles that originate at the medial elbow. 


Sometimes elbow pain can actually be coming from a problem in your neck or cervical spine. Your elbow pain may be due to one or more of the following: 


  • Tendinitis/Tendinosis of the wrist extensor muscles–a.k.a. Tennis Elbow

  • Tendinitis/Tendinosis of the wrist flexor muscles–a.k.a. Golfer’s Elbow

  • Wrist or elbow joint dysfunction

  • Referred pain due to neck/cervical disc problem or pinched nerve

  • Tricep tendinitis/tendinosis

  • Arthritis a.k.a. osteoarthritis a.k.a. degenerative joint disease


Alternative Chiropractic's treatment approach includes:


  • Chiropractic spinal and extremity adjustments:  Adjustments help restore normal motion, balance musculature and reduce pain.

  • Physiotherapy:  This is used to reduce acute pain and inflammation.

  • Muscle and soft tissue techniques:  These help reduce muscle/ligament pain, tightness, adhesions and improve muscle/ligament function.

  • Therapeautic exercises:  Specific rehabilitation exercises and assisted stretches are recommended to strenghten weak/inhibited muscles; improve flexibility and range of motion; and prevent re-injury.

  • Lifestyle modifications:  Postural and repetitive stress activities may need to be addressed.
