The real culprit in Tennis Elbow

Updated on February 23, 2015

What makes Tennis Elbow worse ?

There is a relationship between the radius and the ulna to the humerus. The radius and ulna are the bones in the forearm. The humerus is the upper arm bone. Together they form the boney part of the elbow.

When any of these three bones subluxate there will be added stress on the fascia. This will lead to further proliferation of the adhesions. The more adhesions you have the more friction you will create when tissue comes into contact with other tissue. This aggravates the problem of Tennis Elbow significantly,

Have you ever heard of an Adhesion? You did now.

Adhesion- an abnormal union of membranous surfaces due to inflammation or injury. It is like a band of scar tissue that causes tissue to stick together where it should not be touching. The longer you have adhesions the more adhesions will form.

Adhesions and Subluxations Cause Tennis Elbow

The combination of adhesions and elbow subluxation aggravate the elbow joint. Treating the adhesion and the subluxation make the most sense. This will also yield a better response in the fastest time possible.

Nsaids do not treat these issues. They treat pain. Treating the adhesion and the subluxation will solve this problem for good.

Think of an Adhesion as Bubble Wrap

The fascia becomes filled with adhesions that cause pain and create more adhesions.

This is how your fascia should look and feel

Fascia should be smooth so tissue can slide across with minimal friction

Surgical Debridement of Extensor Carpi Radialis Brevis

You should be aware that surgical intervention may be proposed to you . This will entail having your elbow sliced opened surgically. Then the surgeon would scrape the fascia in an effort to remove the adhesions.

Remember adhesions are like scar tissue. They grow in a disorganized fashion to help support tissue that is under stress. Wouldn't you prefer to try something a little less invasive?
