Acupuncture is a valuable treatment for chronic pain from the head to toes (No 14 elbow pain)

The elbow joint is a hinge-type synovial joint connecting the upper arm to the forearm allowing for extension and flexion of the forearm. It has a strong and fibrous capsule enclosing the joint. The joint capsule is thickened medially and laterally to form collateral ligaments. Elbow pain is often caused by overuse. Many sports, hobbies and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements causing inflammation of the ligaments. Elbow pain may occasionally be due to arthritis.

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a painful condition that occurs when tendons in the elbow are inflamed , usually by repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of the forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of the elbow. Pain can also spread into the forearm and wrist and fingers

Golfer's elbow is a condition that causes pain where the tendons of the forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of the elbow. The pain might also spread into your forearm and wrist. It is the opposite side to tennis elbow which occurs on the outside of the elbow. The main symptom is pain at the inner side of the elbow and the pain sometimes extends along the inner side of the forearm. Pain typically worsens with certain movements. The inner site of elbow is tender to touch. The elbow may feel stiff and making a fist might hurt. There may be weakness in the hands and wrists. There could be also numbness or tingling present. These sensations might radiate into the ring and little fingers.

Acupuncture is effective for elbow pain caused by tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow.
