Acupuncture for Treating Tennis Elbow in Encino


Our Encino acupuncturist can properly diagnose your tennis elbow condition and setup a suitable treatment plan to put you on the road to recovery and healing.

Tennis Elbow can become a day to day nuisance for those suffering from it. Although you may want to suppress the pain with over the counter medication it's important to take steps towards healing the problem as well.

Most commonly found in tennis players and golfers, tennis elbow can effect anyone who is overusing their forearm muscles and tendons. Repetitive, strenuous motions can lead to inflammation, pain and tenderness. Typical treatment plans for tennis elbow can last anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks or longer if your case has been untreated for a serious amount of time.

Symptoms of Tennis Elbow include:

Difficulty gripping, lifting and carrying

Pain and tenderness outside or inside the elbow

Pain radiating from the wrist through the forearm

Difficulty extending the forearm

Using acupuncture to treat your tennis elbow is an excellent option, not only for those looking for natural, drug-free pain relief options, but also for those looking to heal and treat their tennis elbow for recovery. Acupuncture is one of the best techniques for tennis elbow because it increases circulation, eliminating inflammation to the tender elbow and alleviates pain as a result.

While acupuncture needles release chemical like endorphins to the body to alleviate pain, alleviating inflammation of the muscles can help to repair the damaged muscles and tendons, rather than agitating them more and causing more pressure and pain.
