This article talks about the tennis elbow, its main causes and the best crystals for healing tennis elbow.
Tennis elbow is the term used to describe the inflamed and aching irritation of the periosteum of the upper arm bone at the elbow joint. The problem is usually caused by straining sinews, which are attached there at the bone protrusion.
The condition can be caused by the excessive or unaccustomed paying of tennis, hence the name, or by any other regular activity that strains the elbow joints. It can also occur as a result of upper spinal problems in the areas on a level with the neck, chest, or shoulder joint. In the latter case, this condition usually affects both sides of your body.
In order to identify the exact cause, all cases of a tennis elbow should always be examined by a licensed doctor. In respect of self-treatment, the first measure that you need to take is getting enough rest. In acute cases, the area needs to be kept cool, although, while seeming contradictory, cases of really chronic pain will require heat treatment.
Generally, traditional medicine treats any serious case of tens elbow with cortisone, or even surgery, where the sinews attachment to the bones is cut away or nicked.
Things, however, don’t have to be quite that bad. Alternative medicine suggests the application of cooling herb poultices as treatment, using a preparation of rue and comfrey. Homeopathic remedies and body therapies such as cranio-sacral therapy can also be valuable, along with acupuncture and other traditional Chinese medicine treatments.
For complementary treatment, you can also try crystal therapy. Here are some of the best crystals for healing tennis elbow.
