Whole Body Health Care is concerned with treating the whole body. The elbow isn’t usually plagued by joint restriction. Rather, wear and tear to the muscles surrounding it becomes the issue. The prime examples of this are tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow. These are common conditions and not even dominated by tennis players or golfers.
The main three nerves of the arm also run around the elbow and can be subject to irritation. People with elbow pain are those who use their arms a lot. Writing, working, climbing, throwing, doing repetitive motions for a long time, all can lead to problems. I find bowlers to have struggles in their elbow a lot.
Problems coming from the elbow can be mistaken for shoulder or wrist complications. Likewise, problems in those areas can cause elbow pain. It is always important to look up and downstream from the point of pain. Be sure to tell your chiropractor if you experience any numbness, tingling, loss of feeling, or weakness.
