Tennis elbow is a painful condition caused by the inflammation of the soft tissue and tendons of the elbow and forearm. We have a number of approaches to help reduce inflammation, restore correct function of the elbow and therefore reduce pain.
Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow (laterial epicondylitis and medial epicondylitis)
Tennis Elbow and Golfers elbow are both conditions in which the muscles of the forearm become inflamed at the point where they attach to the bony parts of the elbow. This can be a very painful condition.
The conditions are medically known as lateral epicondylitis (Tennis elbow) which presents with pain on the outside of the elbow, and medial epicondylitis (Golfers elbow) which generally hurts on the inside of the elbow.
Whilst the common names for these conditions suggest that they are caused by sporting activity, this is often not the case. Agitation of the muscles, nerves and tendons can be caused by many physical activities.
We use a wide range of techniques that help restore the the mechanics of the forearm and elbow. Using the correct combination of these methods helps to quickly restore the integrity of the tissues and removes adhesions and tightness that contribute to the pain.
