Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a form of tendinitis. Symptoms are usually elbow and arm pain. Repetitive motions often lead to lateral epicondylitis such as movement during tennis, weight lifting, painting, typing, knitting and woodwork. The pain typically worsens when lifting, gripping, twisting and straightening the wrist.
Conventional medical approaches for treating lateral epicondylitis include physical therapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, icing, bracing, local steroid injections and surgery.
Treating Tennis Elbow with Acupuncture
Acupuncture is very effective providing relief for tennis elbow. In a majority of cases the condition is vastly improved with between 3-6 acupuncture sessions over the course of 1-2 months. Distal needling technique is applied exclusively in our practice.
