The term lateral epicondylitis refers to 'tennis elbow' which describes pain found on the outer part of the elbow and the upper part of the forearm. The pain is due to inflammation of the tendon and bony protuberance at the outer part of the elbow.
Pain over the outside elbow, which may travel up or down the arm
It is in fact an overuse injury. Repetitive, forceful movements at the wrist, which bring the thumb outwards and the palm upwards, can cause shortening of the muscles. This causes the attachment of the muscles at the outer part of the elbow to be placed under considerable tension and a sudden movement at the wrist may cause a tear in the muscle or tendon.
Most tennis elbow injuries occur either at the beginning of a game of tennis (as a result of poor warm up techniques) or at the end of a game (when people are fatigued).
Always warm up and stretch muscles before exercising and cool down.
How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care is, of course, up to you. But, for effective long term results, always follow the Chiropractor's recommendations.
Call Dr. Pisarek for your appointment and get your tennis elbow effectively treated.

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
