Tennis Elbow Chiropractic Care

On the top of the list among the illnesses of the upper body is the Denver tennis elbow, also known as Lateral Epicondylitis.

But tennis elbow is not unique to tennis players only. In addition to tennis players, manual laborers, carpenters and secretaries develop tennis elbow. This is produced when the muscles of the forearm (wrist extensor group) is exposed to intense strain. So any activity which requires repetitive wrist extension is intrinsically what causes tennis elbow, according to Dr Rita Cummings. Localized pain in the tendo periosteal junction where the common extensor tendon originates from (outer area of the elbow) is a common complaint in 9 out of 10 cases of tennis elbow. Some patients with tennis elbow say they have radiating pain to the posterior portion of the forearm and wrist area.

The lengthy treatment course due to the lack of a tendon sheath makes having CO tennis elbow an ordeal in itself. The common extensor origin resembles a muscle more than a tendon, but its blood supply is not adequate and thus, it cannot get nutrition from the fluid that is found within a tendon sheath.
