3 Tips to Sleep Better with Tennis Elbow Atlanta, GA
elbow

If you have constant pain on the outside of your elbow, you may be suffering from tennis elbow. Tennis elbow can affect anyone who performs repetitive tasks using the arm, hand and wrist. Pain from this condition can keep you awake at night and affect your quality of life. Here are three tips to help you sleep better with tennis elbow.

Sleep on Your Back

Many people have the habit of sleeping on their side at night. This position can aggravate tennis elbow by restricting blood flow to the injured tendons. Sleeping on your back relieves any pressure placed on your arm and helps boost healing while you rest.

Support with Pillows

You can still experience pain and discomfort from tennis elbow even if you sleep on your unaffected side. Sleeping in this position can cause the upper arm muscles to place strain on your elbow. It can also cause you to twist your forearm and create additional stress on the injured tendons. You can prevent this from happening by supporting your affected arm with a pillow. The pillow can relieve tension and hold your forearm in place while you sleep.

Use a Brace

A tennis elbow brace can provide you with comfort and support during the night. The brace can reduce pressure on the injured tendons. It works to reduce pain by keeping the forearm muscles from contracting fully. This can be ideal for individuals who clench their fists while they sleep.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
