Do you love tennis, but hate living with the pain in your arms? Dynamic Health can help you ace your chronic pain with their friendly and knowledgeable pain management specialists!
“Tennis Elbow” is a common term for lateral epicondylitis, or inflammation of the outside of the elbow caused by the stress of swinging a tennis racquet. There are a few things you can do to help prevent tennis injuries, but if chronic elbow pain becomes a problem, you should schedule an appointment with one of Dynamic Health’s pain management specialists today!
The first trick to preventing tennis elbow is making sure to always use proper form when swinging your racket. Improper technique can lead to undue stress on less used parts of your arm. Try putting two hands on the racquet when you swing backhanded to relieve pressure in the elbow.
Another way to avoid tennis elbow is to make sure your grip size is big enough so that it doesn’t slip in your hands. Also, certain types of racquets with smaller heads or excessive string tightness can lead to injury as well. Make sure to have your racquet tuned by a professional so that it fits your hand and playing style.
If you’re experiencing pain from tennis elbow, you should ice the inflamed area immediately. If this does not ease the pain, or if the pain is ongoing even after adequate rest, the consult a pain specialist at Dynamic Health immediately.
