Treatment for Tennis Elbow
Tennis and golfers elbow are usually caused by a sudden increase in repetitive activities, so it can be resolved quickly with rest and soft tissue techniques. However, often the injury is left untreated and turns into a chronic tendinopathy, which often takes longer to resolve. We will use manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue massage, myofascial release, dry needling and joint manipulation to try and improve the function of the elbow and decrease
soft tissue tightness. An exercise plan and take home advice will also be provided to enable you to get on top of your injury and prevent re-occurrence.
On occasion manual therapy isn’t always successful, usually in tendons that are left untreated for a period of time. Treatment is usually non-operative, however a small proportion require surgery, which is discussed and referred with your practitioner.
