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) is an injury to tendons in the forearm which attach to muscles that move our wrist and elbow. It is commonly an overuse injury, associated with repetitive/sustained wrist/forearm actions, causing micro-tears to the tendons.
My approach to tennis elbow aims to reduce tension in muscles that attach to the affected tendons and improve circulation within the affected arm. I also consider how other joints such as your neck, shoulder and wrist could have influenced the condition and how biomechanics within these joints could have been altered post-injury. My individual tailored home exercise plan and postural advice are key components in treating this condition.
