Tennis Related Pain and Chiropractic Care from Minneapolis Chiropractor

When playing tennis, repetitive gripping activities occur, especially if you're using your thumb and first two fingers and can contribute to a painful condition known as tennis elbow.

Unfortunately, most avid tennis players tend to wait until their pain is so obtrusive to seek help. It is important to seek treatment as soon as you notice any symptoms because it allows for early treatment that can reduce the risk of furthering injury.

What is Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a type of tendonitis (swelling of the tendons) that generates pain in the elbow and arm. These tendons are rings of strong tissue that connect the muscles of your lower arm to your bone.

Tennis elbow is the most common reason that people see their doctors for elbow pain. It can pop up in people of any age but it's most common at about age 40.

What are the symptoms of Tennis Elbow?

The symptoms of tennis elbow vary from person to person, but common symptoms typically include pain and tenderness in the bony knob, on the edge of your elbow. This knob is where the injured tendons link to the bone.

The pain can also travel into the upper or lower arm. Although the damage occurred in the elbow, it is common to hurt when doing things with your hands.

Tennis Elbow can Cause Immense Pain When You:

  • Lift something
  • Make a fist or tightly hold onto an object, like as a tennis racket
  • Open a door
  • Shake hands
  • Raise your hand
  • Straighten your wrist
