Golfer’s Elbow and Tennis Elbow Relief | Chiropractor for Athletes in Fairhaven, MA
We have talked about the golfer’s elbow, which are these muscles here, come into here and hook in here. These are the tendons in here that attach to this medial epicondyle. And this the lateral epicondyle is where these muscles attach. That’s tennis elbow. This is golfer’s elbow.
Golfer’s elbow is medial inside medial epicondylitis, tennis elbow’s, lateral epicondylitis. What do we do for tennis elbow? What have you are golfer’s elbow, we will work on the muscles that innervate these come up to these areas work on the neck that has nerve innervation all the way down to here. We will definitely check the kinetic chain, meaning we’ll check the shoulder, the elbow, the wrist, make sure that they’re all in alignment, but then also support this tendon that’s highly inflamed, we’ll do some might do some therapy on this muscle, we might, you know, definitely use some icing. And then we can use different forms of bracing. Here’s a barreled double strapped at the condo lock, right so we put it over over there at the condo, the lateral at the condyle. And we bring the second piece around. And what she can tell you is that it will limit her tugging an irritation to this by limiting some have some written a gives full range of motion, but it supports the tendon here into the bone so that there’s not this irritation there and exacerbating the inflammation. So that’s one such brace. That’s called an epi-lock. We use that if it’s kind of severe.
We also have a Joe Pat brace. The same thing here, we put put this over the the condyle area that’s irritated and we simply put the strap on and the person can then go about their normal work duties without irritating this tendon in here. But again, we’ll check all the joints, we’ll check the joints of the elbow, we’ll check the joint of the shoulder joint and we’ll also check the nerve innervation of the upper back and neck into this region here. And that’s how we take care of tennis and golfer’s elbow. Then we will do some rehabilitative exercises and some strengthening eventually to stop that problem from occurring again.
Thanks for watching, we’ll see you next time!
