Physiotherapy for Tennis Elbow

 

tennis elbow 3

 

Tennis elbow refers to an inflammation of tendons around the outside of the elbow and is one of the most common elbow injuries.  Tennis elbow tends to be caused by repetitive wrist motions such as hammering, gripping, playing a racket sport (such as tennis) or simply typing or using a mouse at work.

 

Regardless of the cause of tennis elbow, it is not a nice condition and can lead to pain and severe limitations in function with even the smallest tasks being painful (take for example pouring a cup of tea or brushing your hair).

 

Symptoms:

 

Pain- Tennis elbow can lead to severe and functionally limiting pain mainly located around the outside of your elbow. Depending on severity, this pain can even radiate further towards the wrist.

 

Loss of function- tennis elbow can hinder or even stop people doing simple daily tasks such as painting/cleaning/making a cup of tea or completely stop sport participation especially in racquet sports such as tennis or badminton.


Tennis Elbow can be effectively treated by physiotherapy using a range of techniques such as: elbow joint mobilisations, massage, taping, ultrasound and exercises.

 

Physiotherapists can also give you advice on the best ways to cope with the pain at home and at work in order to speed up the recovery process and prevent recurrence.
