Can Your San Antonio Chiropractor Help with Tennis Elbow Pain?
Tennis elbow, technically known as lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition caused by overuse.
Interestingly, tennis elbow pain is experienced by millions of people – not just tennis players. Those who have it need to find a safe, effective treatment that will not only reduce their pain but also prevent long-term damage.
Your San Antonio chiropractor can provide such treatment.
Tennis Elbow – What Causes It, Especially in Non-Tennis Players?
Lateral epicondylitis is a condition that’s caused by the inflammation of the tendons that connect the forearm muscles at the elbow. Repeating a certain motion can lead to overuse, which damages both the tendons and the muscles, causing small tears and leading to tennis elbow pain.
Repeated actions can include:
- Playing tennis, squash, golf, or racquetball
- Tree trimming
- Playing guitar
- Working on an assembly line
- Butchering/meat cutting
How South Texas Chiropractic Can Help Ease Tennis Elbow Pain
When you see a chiropractor for tennis elbow pain, they’ll often treat the elbow. It makes sense as that’s where you’re experiencing pain.
However, Dr. Kling goes a step further. He focuses his efforts on the muscles that traverse between the radius and ulna – the two bones that make up the forearm. That means that instead of simply working on the elbow, he treats the hand, wrist, shoulder, and neck as well as the elbow.
Besides chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Kling might also recommend regenerative treatments if the muscles/tendons are particularly damaged. Such treatments include stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma injections.
The combination of regenerative treatment and adjustments will help you:
- Get out of pain
- Prevent further injury
- Prevent long-term damage
