Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow Treatment with our Bellevue Chiropractor

Woman with tennis elbow

Tennis elbow does not only occur if you play tennis. The name tennis elbow is given to this condition because the motions of tennis playing are what most often cause this pain on the outside of your elbow. If you are experiencing pain on the outside of your elbow and you live in or near the Bellevue WA area, our chiropractor welcomes the opportunity to share with you our holistic healing approach.

You do not have to turn to mediations to ease the pain or live with the discomfort from tennis elbow. Instead, our chiropractor, Dr. Edward Owens evaluates your symptoms, your daily movements and puts together a chiropractic healing plan to quickly alleviate your pain and inflammation.

What is Tennis Elbow?

Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendons that support your elbow joint and allow you to perform such activities as playing sports, opening car doors, lifting children and washing windows.

Tennis Elbow Causes and Chiropractic Treatments

Elbow pain does not always mean you have the condition known as tennis elbow. If you are involved in an auto accident, for example, you may have a fractured elbow or a dislocated joint. Dr. Owens can help with these conditions as well as with the overuse injury known as tennis elbow. This type of pain gradually worsens over time and although can be caused by playing a lot of tennis, if may also happen if you have a career in which you perform the same repetitive movements. Dr. Owens evaluates your elbow pain and then decides which chiropractic services will reduce your recovery time. He may include:

  • Lifestyle changes- Dr. Owens makes suggestions about how to amend the way you perform movements to alleviate your pain and reduce further inflammation of the elbow tendon.
  • Chiropractic adjustments- our chiropractor positions your elbow so that it is able to move freely and with less pain, which also reduces pressure on the tendon.
  • Massage therapy- this service can reduce inflammation and improve muscular balance to reduce your risk of future injuries.
  • Exercise therapy- Dr. Owens shows you how to stretch and strengthen your arm muscles to support proper elbow alignment.
