I have been meaning to post about my tennis elbow for months.
I have had very few wrist issues in the 25+ years that I have been grooming. Unfortunately, I think because I was so careful not to over work my wrist, I over used my elbow instead.
It became a big issue last year. I suffered with it for months. Not only did it hurt to move it, but it hurt to touch it. Nothing seemed to help. I took pain meds, I wrapped it, I even did laser therapy on it.
I don't remember when it happened, but one day I noticed it didn't hurt anymore.
A few weeks ago it flared back up. It was getting very painful. Two Saturdays ago, I realized it didn't hurt, at all. Hmmmm
The day before, I had been to the chiropractor for my back.
Last June, I had some major back problems. I went to the Chiropractor several times. If I look back, I am almost positive that my elbow problems would have been before the back issues and before several visits to the Chiropractor.
I've noticed the last few days that my back is feeling pretty tight and out of whack again. Yesterday, my elbow started to ache.
My Chiro appts are not covered under my insurance, but only cost me $38. That is a whole lot less than what I would pay to see the doctor, get and buy a prescription for pain meds, and be told to stop using my elbow until it heals. (Yeah right)
I'll probably go see her again tomorrow. I'm very curious to see if my elbow pain goes away when I do.
