Elbow Pain

Pain around the elbow can be caused by several soft tissues; muscles, tendons, bursa or by compression of nerves as they move through structures in your neck, shoulder, arm or forearm.

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) and golfers elbow (medial epicondylitis) are injuries to tendons in the forearm which attach to muscles that move our wrist and elbow. They are commonly overuse injuries, associated with repetitive/sustained wrist/forearm actions, causing micro-tears to the tendons.

Our approach to tennis/golfers elbow aims to reduce tension in muscles that attach to the affected tendons, and improve circulation within the affected arm. We also consider how other joints such as your neck, shoulder and wrist could have influenced the condition, and how movement within these joints may have been altered during the injury. Our individual tailored home exercise plan and postural advice are key components in treating this condition.
