Chiropractic Bremerton WA Elbow Pain

Elbow pain in Bremerton is very common. Especially when everybody has their whole life fit into a pocket-sized mobile phone and requires bent elbows, always.

But, Tennis elbow is a whole other issue.

The type of elbow pain where the pain occurs on the outside of the elbow area and at times in the forearm and wrist area due to repetitive motions is called Tennis elbow or Lateral Epicondylitis.

Tennis elbow is the pain from the micro-tearing and swelling of the tendons of the elbow and arm.

These occur from repetitive motions, especially motions which involve gripping activities (mostly the thumb and first two fingers).

These repetitive motions can be anything from kitchen work, painting, playing musical instruments, cleaning, carpentry, knitting, raking, typing, etc. Of course, playing sports that require the repeated elbow motion, gripping and strength like tennis can also cause Tennis elbow.

No elbow pain is a huge issue until there is frequent, immense, or constant pain in the elbow region signifying the weakening of the tendons.

This tendon weakening makes them a lot more susceptible to tearing, inflammations, and other types of damage.

There could be more pain felt by the person if they are:

  • Lifting something
  • Gripping something
  • Opening the door
  • Shaking hands
  • Raise their hands
  • Straightening their wrists
  • Play gripping sports

Tennis elbow is highly similar to the way another condition, called Golfer’s elbow, feels and should get professionally tested to figure out if you have Tennis or Golfer’s elbow.

Treatments for Tennis Elbow in Bremerton involve:

  • Icing the elbow: This reduces surface level pain and swelling but is temporary.
  • Elbow straps: These work like braces for the teeth and feet. They only ensure that you don’t further your damage to yourself while that part of your body heals. This takes a lot of time and is very restrictive. It can end up relapsing with improper care.
  • Anti-inflammatory meds, Injections, or pain meds: These can be helpful while the body heals but can lead to addictions, side-effects and aren’t suitable for certain people
  • Surgeries: The tendons may be stretched or some part of it taken out and the rest repaired. But, this isn’t foolproof either and can still relapse or get infected.
  • Chiropractic: Chiropractic is a quick and effective long-term solution to Tennis elbow with its non-invasive nature and suitability.

Chiropractic care at Bremerton Wellness is highly effective and has a lot of benefits like:

  • Breaks up scar tissue
  • Improves mobility and functioning
