Tennis Elbow / Lateral Epicondylitis

Are you suffering from pain in the elbow when you’re gripping or twisting? If it’s on the outside of your elbow, then it sounds like tennis elbow. This can be a really annoying, chronic problem that can really affect your grip strength. In addition to all the usual tennis elbow tests and techniques, our therapists know it’s also worth checking out how the shoulder is working and if the nerves are involved. We will also look at your posture. You may be amazed to learn that, much of the time there are issues higher up the chain, meaning the elbow is put under more strain day to day.

Here at The Back and Body Clinic we have various techniques to help with tennis elbow, such as the belt, but don’t worry it’s actually one of the more comfortable techniques. Although in really stubborn cases we sometimes need to shock it into submission with shockwave therapy – and if that doesn’t do it, then a steroid injection should.
