ELBOW PAIN CAN PLAY HAVOC IN YOUR LIFE…
Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendon.
We know you’re in pain and just want to get back to the things you love.
It is caused by overuse of the muscles in the forearm.
Tennis elbow is inflammation of the tendon on the outside of your elbow.
At the boney knob on the outside of the elbow all the muscles of the forearm attach.
Overusing the muscles of the forearm can cause irritation. Once inflamed the tendon can cause pain at rest and with activity.
Tennis elbow can limit you
Not only from participating in the sports that you love but other activities of life.
If the symptoms are present long enough, picking up a cup of coffee or fixing your hair can become a challenge.

What We Do
Soft tissue can address the tight muscles in the forearm. Dry needling can be effective in managing the tendon inflammation.
Manual therapy aids in the increase of blood flow to the tendon. It also helps range of motion restrictions you may have.
Strengthening and stretching can eliminate tightness in the forearm. Also observing the activity that caused the inflammation can reveal some muscle imbalances that started the problem.
