Effective Strategies for Tennis Elbow Relief: A Physiotherapy Approach

Tennis elbow, a condition not limited to athletes, can significantly impact daily life. At Union Health and Performance, our expert physiotherapists offer targeted treatments to help you recover quickly and effectively.

Understanding Tennis Elbow:

Also known as lateral epicondylitis, tennis elbow arises from overuse of the forearm muscles, leading to tendon inflammation near the elbow. This condition is prevalent among individuals engaging in repetitive wrist and arm movements, affecting more than just tennis players.

The Benefits of Physiotherapy:

  1. Pain Management: Our initial focus is on alleviating your discomfort through ice therapy, ultrasound, and exercises specifically designed for pain relief.
  2. Muscle Strengthening: Strengthening the forearm muscles is essential for reducing tendon stress, mitigating symptoms, and preventing future complications.
  3. Flexibility Improvement: We aim to enhance the flexibility of your forearm muscles, crucial for recovery and maintaining elbow health.
  4. Movement Restoration: Through manual therapy, we work on mobilizing the elbow and forearm, improving movement, and decreasing discomfort.
  5. Activity Modification Advice: Customized advice on modifying daily activities and ergonomic adjustments helps prevent overuse and strain, safeguarding your elbow from further injury.
