Written By Longview Chiropractic Center on June 14, 2019

Woman with Tennis Elbow in LongviewDo you ever experience pain in your elbow? Do you have difficulty lifting or gripping things, or have a hard time extending your arm?

This type of elbow pain is often referred to as tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. Even if you’re not an avid golfer or tennis player you can experience this type of pain.

Is there anything that can be done about it? Yes, our Longview chiropractor can effectively treat this condition. 

How Acupuncture Can be Used to Successfully Treat Elbow Pain in Longview

Tennis elbow is caused by repetitive motions, which can damage the muscles and tendons of the forearm. Activities that can lead to elbow pain include:

  • Gardening
  • Hammering
  • Sports

Repetitive motions can cause inflammation and tiny tears in both the muscles and tendons. Thankfully, Longview Chiropractic has a solution: acupuncture.

When there is muscle tension and inflammation, energy blockages can occur. Acupuncture helps to improve energy flow in these areas. Additionally, acupuncture is a relaxing procedure that can ease the muscles and cause the brain to release pain-reducing hormones and chemicals.
