Drysdale Osteopathy • Tennis Elbow

Arm Pain, Tennis ElbowTennis Elbow is pain on the outside of the elbow.

There are many muscles that attach to the outside of the elbow, and when these muscles are overused, pain in the area will develop. 

Trigger points in this muscle, the extensor carpi radialis longus, are typical of this.

The lower neck and upper back, when dysfunctional, can also cause tennis elbow.

When treating this condition attention is paid to the arm and neck.

Treatment will normally involve deep massage or acupuncture and spinal manipulation.
