Tennis Elbow

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylopathy or lateral epicondylitis is very common and we have great success treating this condition. Many of the patients who we treat with this condition have already seen other providers including physical therapists, chiropractors, or other sports medicine providers. This is one of the conditions where we are examining the use of diagnostic ultrasound to help direct people down the appropriate care pathway. Standard treatments include soft tissue mobilization in the form of active release technique and deep transverse friction massage as well as laser therapy and specific tendon loading exercises which helps speed healing. Other standard of care procedures include bracing and taping . We also look up the chain as some of the latest guidelines suggest scapular/shoulder blade stabilization exercises can be helpful.
