Innate Chiropractic Health,LLC
Although the name implies a common phenomenon seen in tennis players, this
lateral (outside) elbow pain is more commonly seen in work-related injuries as a
result of cumulative or repetitive stress. The elbow and the muscles that attach
to it present with pain during simple movements of the wrist and elbow,
especially gripping, rotation (like opening a door) or when the hand is pushed
backward (extended) and resistance is applied. Point tenderness is also noticed
near the outside of the elbow when it is touched, and the area can become hot
and swollen, although swelling is seen rarely. Sometimes, pain in this part of the
elbow can be related to nerve involvement in the neck, shoulder, elbow and/or wrist.
Adjustments to the neck, shoulder, elbow and/or wrist may be utilized in conjunction with soft tissue treatments such as Active Release Technique®, Kinesiotaping, Class IV Cold Laser, Graston or guasha. Acupuncture may also be advised as it is often successful in decreasing inflammation/edema, as well as significantly improving pain levels.
