Can Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Help Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow can be a very painful and long lasting injury. It is a combination of tight muscle pain and inflammation on the outside of the elbow and can come from a number of causes.
Chinese medicine has some unique ways of helping you recover from tennis elbow.
Firstly we need to reduce the muscle tension in the area. This tension continues to put strain on the inflamed and damaged tissue. We do this by using acupuncture points on the other side of the body. Instead of risking further damage to the area by needling the site of pain, we can instead use your nervous system to tell those muscles to relax.
Secondly we use different points to help to reduce pain, that way you can go about your day to day life without constant elbow pain.
Thirdly we use the acupuncture to help stimulate your body to release its own anti-inflammatories. We may also suggest Chinese herbal medicine to continue this effect and start you on the healing process.
