Rapid City Chiropractic Care for Tennis Elbow
Specific to the elbow, chiropractors are the best trained providers to adjust the radioulnar joint, the humeroradial joint, and even the humeroulnar joint. Obviously, if these joints do not have the proper biomechanics, inflammation will persist and result in pain. Many people find relief short term with these adjustments immediately. However, as you know, muscles attach to these structures and if the muscles are in spasm, proper stretching is needed. In severe cases, ultrasound will be added. Granted, this is a form of heat, but it stimulates blood flow and healing to these areas. Lastly – and perhaps most importantly, the nerves that control the muscles, affect the healing process, and tell you there is PAIN at the elbow all come from the neck! Yes, adjusting the neck can help the elbow – actually any part of the arm. Chiropractic has had a very high success rate with this condition over the years.
