What Do You Do If You Have Tennis Elbow?

Tennis Elbow is a common condition that rarely is caused by actually playing tennis. Lateral epicondylitis is the medical term for tennis elbow. It is usually caused by overuse of your arms with activities such as repetitive use of the computer or heavy lifting.  If you are suffering from tennis elbow, physical therapy can help.

You don’t have to suffer with elbow pain.  With the proper treatment approach that may include appropriate stretches and strengthening exercises, manual therapy with the use of Graston tools or manual techniques to loosen muscles and improve healing to the involved area, modalities to decrease pain, and correct use of a tennis elbow strap or splint, you can be pain free.

Physical therapy is very effective in decreasing elbow pain from tennis elbow and is important especially after a cortisone injection to ensure you get the appropriate exercises for regaining normal flexibility and strength so your pain does not return.

If you are suffering from elbow pain, call OSI Physical Therapy and schedule an appointment with a hand therapist to get rid of your pain for good.  We are here to help you.
