Although it is called “Tennis Elbow,” any occupation, sport, or household activity that uses the forearm and wrist repeatedly can lead to this condition. It is most common in adults who are 30 to 50 years old, but it is not impossible to happen to people of any age. People who have Tennis Elbow experience pain that begins in the outer area of the elbow and shoots into their forearm and wrist. They also experience weakness in their arm, so it becomes difficult to hold things, turn doorknobs, and even shake hands. Chiropractic Care can help determine if a misalignment in the spine, neck, shoulders, or elbow may be causing Tennis Elbow. Dr. Hume, DC can start you on a treatment plan to help stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons in your arm.
