The best long-term golfer or tennis elbow treatment involves re-balancing the muscles of your arm to properly handle the activity that caused the condition to develop in the first place. Tennis elbow is an inflammation or irritation of the tendons on the outside of the elbow, while golfers elbow involves the tendons on the inside of your elbow.
We have successfully offered patients non-surgical, noninvasive relief for both tennis elbow and golfers elbow for over 30 years. Our Arlington Heights chiropractor team treat an array of muscle, bone, tendon and joint maladies.

A form of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), tennis elbow and golfers elbow are caused by damage to the tendons that connect the forearm muscle to the elbow. The damage typically results from overuse, especially from a repetitive activity. The pain typically begins around the elbow, but progressively worsens, especially when trying to squeeze or grip something.
It is common for people with elbow problems to have a weakness in their core or shoulder that causes them to over grip objects. Squeezing objects too hard often leads to overuse and inflammation at the elbow. If the cause is not addressed, tennis elbow relief is not likely to happen on its own.
Tennis Elbow Treatment
Typically, golfers and tennis elbow treatment involves an integrative approach. Our Arlington Heights chiropractor team will direct your care, but depending on its severity may recommend consulting our medical physician and physiatrist Jason Gruss, MD, FAAPM&R or acupuncturist Yu Zhu, LAC, MD(China) to speed recovery time and promote tennis elbow relief. Our experienced chiropractors will examine the elbow as well as other areas that affect it, including the core and shoulder. They will develop an individualized treatment approach to fix the underlying cause of tennis elbow and golfers elbow.
Our Arlington Heights chiropractor team may treat these conditions with various massage, ultrasound, manual therapy and adjusting techniques. They will also teach you key exercises for the core, shoulder, arm and hand. Strengthening weaknesses in these areas helps correct the cause and prevents its recurrence.
