Pain Management Strategies for Tennis Elbow

  • Share:

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a debilitating condition that affects a wide range of individuals, not just athletes. It’s characterized by pain in the elbow and forearm due to overuse of the forearm muscles and tendons. At Tri Physical Therapy, we offer a specialized approach to manage this condition, combining our expert knowledge with innovative therapy techniques for effective recovery.

Understanding Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow arises from repetitive activities, straining the muscles and tendons of the forearm, and is common in those aged 30 to 50. It manifests as a burning pain on the outside of the elbow, potentially extending to the wrist, and can progress from being activity-induced to a constant ache.

Diagnosis at Tri Physical Therapy

Our approach begins with an in-depth assessment, including a physical examination and medical history review, to accurately diagnose tennis elbow.

Tailored Pain Management Strategies

Physical Therapy: We design personalized programs focusing on stretching and strengthening the forearm, alleviating pain, and preventing future injuries.

Manual Therapy: Techniques such as massage and mobilization relieve muscle and tendon tension, enhancing recovery.

Electrical Stimulation: TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is used for persistent cases to manage pain and reduce muscle spasms.

Advanced Treatment Options

Dry Needling: This involves inserting thin needles into specific points to release muscle tension.

Laser Therapy: Low-level laser therapy stimulates recovery, reduces inflammation, and alleviates pain.

PRP Therapy: Utilizing the patient’s blood, this innovative treatment accelerates the repair process of damaged tissues.

Shockwave Therapy: A non-invasive treatment delivering high-energy sound waves to promote recovery and reduce pain.

Scrambler Therapy: Scrambler Therapy offers promising relief for conditions like tennis elbow by effectively overriding pain signals sent to the brain, providing a noninvasive and innovative solution for chronic pain management.

Our Commitment

We emphasize preventive care, educating patients on proper warm-up routines, correct posture and techniques, and the use of supportive equipment to prevent re-injury.

At Tri Physical Therapy, our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to providing high-standard, personalized care. We focus on comprehensive treatment options, education, and prevention, helping patients achieve lasting relief and optimal functionality.
