Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis as it is more appropriately called
is similar to golfer's elbow or medial epicondylitis. These two
conditions are most always caused by overuse or un-natural straining
that the body is not built to handle. Like carpal tunnel or other
repetitive stress injuries, the ligaments become inflamed causing
dysfunction and pain. The chiropractic goal in these conditions is to
correct the biomechanics whereby relieving pain, decreasing inflammation, and
resetting the muscle matrix to avoid scarring.
