What Is Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendon that connects your forearm muscles to your elbow and is one of the most common forms of tendonitis.

This inflammation is caused by small tears that are a result of repeatedly overusing your forearm muscles during repetitive elbow movements. As the name suggests, this is a common pain that tennis players suffer from, however it often occurs from other causes such as gardening, sports, driving, lifting and crafting.

Tennis elbow often begins as just a minor irritation and if it is not treated appropriately it can lead to increased pain and chronic symptoms.

Some professions lead individuals to become more prone to developing tennis elbow, including:

  • Carpenters
  • Hairdressers
  • Office workers
  • Writers that type constantly
  • And any other profession that requires repetitive arm motions or gripping.

Commonly people who are experiencing neck and shoulder pain, will overcompensate with the use of their elbows and wrists. One injury can often lead to other strains and injuries, which is why we focus on a holistic approach to your pain at Flex Osteopathy Adelaide.

Are you experiencing any of these symptoms? We can help you relieve your tennis elbow pain.

How Can Osteopathy Help My Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow, if left untreated and improperly cared for, may become chronic. This means that it could potentially be an ongoing pain that you experience throughout your life.

Our osteopathy treatments are one of the most effective ways you can manage your tennis elbow injury. By examining your area of pain and coming up with a tailored treatment that takes into account your profession and lifestyle.

Your osteopath may suggest various rehabilitation exercises including ongoing stretching and strengthening, these are highly beneficial for your recovery.

Gentle massage techniques are often applied to your forearm and related areas to release tension and ease your pain.

For a tailored course of action to overcome your tennis elbow pain, get in touch with one of our osteopathic practitioners Flex Osteopathy Adelaide today.
