Treatment & Therapy

Welcome to the London Wellness Centre, where our commitment is to offer detailed information and effective therapies for tennis elbow—a prevalent condition causing pain and discomfort in the elbow and forearm. Our team of skilled physiotherapists is dedicated to assisting you in recovery and returning to your active lifestyle.

Tennis Elbow Overview:

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is characterized by pain and inflammation on the outer part of the elbow. Contrary to its name, this condition can affect anyone, not just tennis players. It typically results from repetitive forearm motions, leading to strain on the tendons attached to the lateral epicondyle (the bony protrusion on the outer side of the elbow).

Symptoms & Physiotherapy's Role:

The primary symptom of tennis elbow is pain and tenderness on the outer part of the elbow, often extending down the forearm. Aggravation may occur during specific movements such as gripping, lifting, or twisting. Additional symptoms include challenges in fully extending the wrist, weakness in the affected arm, and discomfort during daily activities.

Physiotherapy is pivotal in managing and rehabilitating tennis elbow. Our experienced physiotherapists conduct a thorough assessment to create a personalized treatment plan aimed at alleviating pain, reducing inflammation, promoting healing, and restoring full function and mobility to the affected arm.

Treatment Approaches:

1. Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques like massage and joint mobilization enhance blood circulation, reduce muscle tension, and facilitate tissue healing.

2. Therapeutic Exercises: Customized exercises strengthen elbow and forearm muscles, improving flexibility, endurance, and stability.

3. Stretching Techniques: Targeted stretches alleviate pain, enhance flexibility, and support healing.

4. Electrotherapy: Modalities such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation help reduce pain and inflammation while stimulating muscle function.

5. Ergonomic Assessment: Guidance on proper ergonomics and body mechanics aids in minimizing strain during daily activities.
Prevention and Self-Care: Our physiotherapists provide insights into warm-up exercises, equipment modifications, and techniques to prevent tennis elbow or its recurrence. Self-care strategies like rest, ice or heat application, and the use of braces are also recommended.
