Tennis Elbow

Lateral elbow pain is a common and often frustrating presentation amongst sports people and DIY enthusiasts alike. It has been historically termed tennis elbow, lateral epicondylitis or more recently, extensor tendinosis.

Tennis elbow causes pain on the outside of the elbow when gripping with the hand. The tendon on the outside of the elbow is under considerable sheering stress during these activities. It is thought that this sheering mechanism compromises the blood flow to the tendon, leading – in time – to degeneration.

The goal of treatment is to promote healing of the injured tissue and resolve pain. At Fay Pedler Physiotherapy, our Physiotherapists use a combination of manual therapy, acupuncture and exercises to improve muscle dynamics. It is then essential to begin an eccentric strengthening programme to help the tendon to heal and prevent recurrence. Kinesiology taping can also be useful to support the tissue healing during treatment.

One of the most common injuries is the sprained ankle, often occurring when you roll over on your ankle causing an injury to the lateral ligaments.
