Today we will be offering some advice, exercises and stretches which are good for those suffering with tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis).
Tennis elbow (pain on outside of the elbow) affects tennis players, weight lifters, office workers, builders, gardeners, and people taking up new and repetitive activities such as decorating or playing the violin. Most people with this problem have some pain when lifting pans, opening jars, bending their arm, gripping small objects such as pens, shaking someone’s hand firmly or holding a cup.
What is tennis elbow?
Tennis elbow is an overuse injury which occurs where the tendon which extends the wrist attaches to the outside of the elbow.
The best treatment for tennis elbow is frictions, massage, mobilisations combined with exercises. Acupuncture is another effective treatment for tennis elbow too; we offer this at all of our physiotherapy clinics at Basingstoke, Havant and Rowlands Castle, Hampsire.
Please be aware of your body and take advice from your GP before exercising or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for advice and guidance.
