What is tennis elbow and what is the best treatment for tennis elbow in London?

Tennis elbow, lateral epicondylitis

is the result of minor tears in your tendon on the lateral side of your arm. If these tendons are continuously used, like in many household tasks, using a screwdriver and office jobs- and of cause raquet sports, inflammation results and your elbow becomes sore and painful. When a muscle tears, scar tissue forms which isn’t as pliable as the muscle or tendon was before the rupture.

Health is composed of structure, bio-chemical and mental factors, which must be equally, balanced producing the triad of health. When a person has ill health, at least one of these factors is involved and often two or three. The principle of AK is to analyse and check all three factors and treat any or all that are disrupted.

It is important in many cases to check your spine
