Tennis

Tennis is a fun and inexpensive sport that is easily accessible living in the city as there are numerous free tennis courts throughout Atlanta.

One of the more common complaints from a tennis player is elbow and forearm pain, more commonly known as “tennis elbow”.  The forearm flexor muscles can also become a problem for those players with an aggressive forehand shot.

Shoulder injuries can also become a problem.  Problems with the rotator cuff muscles can arise from improper stresses on the shoulder created particularly during the serve.  A biomechanical evaluation would be necessary to evaluate the cause of the injury.

Ankle injuries can be a common problem due to the quick changes in direction.   An inversion ankle sprains is the most common of these injuries.

The Active Release Technique® practitioner diagnoses the exact tissue(s) that are injured and causing the problem(s). After diagnosing the problem,
