Tennis Elbow is a term used to describe a repetitive strain that occurs in the tendon of forearm extensor muscles attached to the elbow region. Symptoms may include difficulty gripping objects, tightness or a costant ache in the forearm muscles, or inflammation or swelling in the elbow or forearm. A visit to our clinic will be essential for a proper diagnosis of your pain.
Osteopathic treatment could include soft tissue techniques to relieve the tension, joint mobilisation and gentle stretching techniques to restore the normal motion of the elbow, and specific management techniques to reduce inflammation.
Remember tennis elbow is not only experienced by those that okay tennis but anyone who, in the course of daily activity, may overuse the forearm, elbow or wrist to cause a repetitive strain.
