Tennis-Related Injuries


At ISIS Chiropractic Centres, our Chiropractors often see patients that are suffering from tennis-related injuries. This phenomenon becomes more commonplace towards the end of the month of June because of the tournaments of Queen’s and Wimbledon!

Playing tennis is a great way to stay physically fit for both competitive and social players. Compared to other sports, the risk of injury from playing tennis is relatively low, but there are certain factors that can increase your risk of injury.

Tennis injuries are usually due to overuse or to trauma. Overuse injuries most often affect your arms where you perform many repetitive actions at your shoulders, elbows and wrists. Acute injuries also affect your low back, knees or ankles.

Here is a list of the most common tennis injuries:

    •    Back Sprain and Disc Injuries
    •    Sprained Ankle
    •    Shoulder Tendinitis
    •    Calf Strain
    •    Stress Fracture of the Back
    •    Tennis Elbow and Infrapatellar Tendonitis


Factors That Can Increase Your Risk Of Injury

Playing tennis is a great way to stay physically fit for both competitive and social players. Compared to other sports, the risk of injury from playing tennis is relatively low, but there are certain factors that can increase your risk of injury:

  • Incorrect technique: Poor serving and swinging will increase your chance of injury, especially your shoulder and elbow.
  • Failure to warm up and cool down: This will increase your risk of muscle and joint injuries if not done properly.
  • Time spent playing: You need to be fit to play an entire match so, with sufficient rest and recovery time, overuse injuries will be less likely to occur.
  • Previous injury: If you have previously received an injury this will be more likely to re-occur.

5 Key Points To Consider When Trying To Prevent Injury:

There are 5 key points you must consider when trying to prevent injury:

  1. Environment: Avoid playing on hard surfaces with no “give”, such as cement.
  2. DressCode: Wear shoes specifically designed for tennis that gives appropriate support.
  3. Equipment: See a professional to select a racquet that is suitable for you and suits your skill level.
  4. Preparation: Make sure you warm-up and cool down.

  5. Technique: Consider taking lessons from a qualified coach to help your technique.

    Chiropractors, whilst best known for treating spinal injuries, are also trained in treating all the other joints of your body, including your shoulders, elbows and wrists.
    If you get gripped with tennis fever and even after following these hints and tips, you still sustain an injury of your muscles, bones or joints, Chiropractic may have the answer.
