Acupuncture can work well for most musculoskeletal injuries but especially around the major joints of elbow, shoulder and knee. Tennis Elbow is a general term caused by overuse of the hand and forearm muscles and can develop from other events than just a sports injury. This results in inflammation of the muscle tendons on the outside of the elbow at the bony prominence. Convention treatments included ultra sound, heat packs, massage and braces for immobilizing the area for periods of time. In the science of acupuncture there are a number of energy pathways called meridians which travel thru the arm and elbow area. Each meridian has a number of therapeutic points along the pathway where needles can be inserted to relieve the pain and reduce swelling. Generally these points follow the fascia plane lines of the body and many are associated with the origins and insertion areas of the muscles into the bone. Others, overlap conventional trigger points in their location. By inserting a number of small needles into the affected area can help bring the area back into balance by stimulating the natural processes of both the nervous system and immune system.
