Definition

Deriving its name from the high occurrence in tennis athletes, this condition causes pain on the outside of the elbow. It is primarily from a repetitive contraction of the muscles on the elbow that causes an irritation and/or an inflammation in the soft tissue.

Lateral epicondylitis typically responds well to conservative, non-invasive care and rarely requires surgery. It can be very persistent, however, and early treatment can greatly aid in a quick resolution.

Treatment

Doctor Wright is a chiropractic extremity specialist and can utilize many non-surgical, conservative treatments focused on reducing pain and improving flexibility and function. To see if chiropractic may be able to help you call 817-594-5944 today for a complimentary consultation.
