Understanding Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow, medically termed lateral epicondylitis, arises from the overuse of forearm muscles, leading to inflammation of the tendon attaching these muscles to the outer elbow bone. Repetitive elbow movements exacerbate this condition, resulting in pain and swelling.

Physiotherapy, Chiropractic, and Massage
Therapy Interventions

Treatment for tennis elbow varies depending on factors such as causative factors, duration, pain intensity, and treatment objectives. Physiotherapy and chiropractic interventions commonly incorporate manual therapy techniques, acupuncture, therapeutic ultrasound, and tailored exercises. Additionally, physiotherapists may recommend elbow braces like the Bauerfeind EpiTrain to provide optimal support and stabilization for the affected joint.
Massage therapy complements physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments by addressing soft tissue tension in the forearm, upper arm, neck, and back.

Exercises for Tennis Elbow

While engaging in exercises, it’s crucial to avoid activities that exacerbate pain. Here are some general exercises:

Forearm Flexor Stretch

  • Begin in a standing or seated position with an upright posture.
  • Elevate your shoulder and arm to approximately 90 degrees, palm facing downwards.
  • Use your opposite hand to gently press down on your hand, bending your wrist and creating a mild stretch on the outer arm.
  • Hold for about 20 seconds and repeat three times on each side.
