Tennis elbow (also called “lateral epicondylitis”) is a condition that comes about from overuse, and it’s something that can happen whether you’re a tennis enthusiast or not. Tennis elbow occurs when inflammation strikes the tendons that join the forearm. Damage occurs from repeating the same motion over and over again.
Possible treatment options for tennis elbow include icing, or hot/cold therapy in order to reduce pain and swelling without drug intervention.
Other treatments include elbow straps or other brace devices that can help protect your injured tendon, shielding it from further strain.
Yoga is another option that provides drug-free pain relief for your joints. Building your yoga practice will also improve your range of motion.
Chiropractic treatments are another great way to treat tennis elbow the drug-free way. At Scorca Chiropractic we use a number of techniques, including myofascial release as well as instrument-assisted soft tissue techniques (IASTM) to get you back to pain-free. We can also provide you with rehabilitative exercises that will get you far better results than drugs or injections.
