This is a condition characterised by pain on the outer side of the elbow. It is caused by an inflammation of the tendons as they attach onto the bone and can be caused by over activity, trauma, repetition of certain movements and other causes. Patients suffering with this condition often demonstrate pain with activities such as turning the key in the lock, shaking someone’s hand and they may even have pain extending down into the wrist or the thumb.
Effective treatment for this issue, includes stretching, massage, dry needling and elbow manipulation by your qualified chiropractor. To determine if you may have this condition, rest your hand, with a straight arm, palm down on a table. Lift your middle finger up and with the other hand create a resistance to the finger. If this causes elbow pain, then you may have tennis elbow. A good way to try and treat this at home is by pressing into the painful part on the outside of the elbow for thirty seconds, then retry the test that we talked about before. If the pain gets easier then you know its something you can do to help it. If this isn’t subsiding long term then as chiropractors we diagnose and treat this problem almost daily and you may need some help to resolve it.
