Elbow Pain and Injuries

The elbow has three bones: the humerus, the ulna and the radius. It flexes and extends as well as rotates. The biceps and triceps are main muscle movers, but many other less well-known muscles are important: supinator, pronator teres, wrist flexors and extensors, articularis cubiti, etc. All must be checked and attended to for best results. Having your elbow adjusted can be extremely satisfying and effective for the common forms of elbow tendinitis, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow. The elbow has lots of acupuncture points around it, especially those related to large intestine and lung. Elbow pain can seriously affect the quality of your daily life.
