Having elbow pain, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow? Acupuncture can help

The elbow joint is joined together by the tendons and surrounded by muscles that move the elbow, wrist and fingers and control the muscles of the forearm. Sometimes the elbow can become painful. Elbow pain is often caused by overuse. Many sports, hobbies and jobs requiring repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements can cause overuse the tendons and fascia in the joints.

Tennis elbow a condition that causes pain around the outside of the elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis. It often occurs after strenuous overuse of the muscles and tendons of the forearm on the outside of the elbow joint. If the muscles and tendons are strained, tiny tears and inflammation can develop near the bony lump (the lateral epicondyle) the elbow. The main symptom is notice pain: on the outside of the upper forearm, just below the bend of the elbow, when lifting or bending the arm, when gripping small objects, such as a pen, when twisting the forearm, such as turning a door handle or opening a jar.

Pain that occurs on the inner side of the elbow is often known as golfer's elbow. The cause is similar to tennis elbow. Acupuncture can help to reduce inflammation and pain of tennis or golfer’s elbow. It's also important that you rest your injured arm and stop doing the activity that's causing the pain.
