Tennis Elbow/Lateral Epicondylitis

BPTh/BPT, MPT

Tennis Elbow/Lateral Epicondylitis

Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) is inflammation of the tendons that extend the hand backward and away from the palm.

Factors that increase having- 

1-weak shoulder and forearm muscles.

2-playing with a racket that is too tightly strung

3-too short, hitting the ball off center on the racket (out of the sweet spot)

4-hitting heavy, wet balls.
 
Hitting backhanded and allowing the wrist to bend increase the chance of developing lateral epicondylitis.

Treatment -

1-ice is applied to the outer elbow, and exercises that cause pain are avoided.

2- use of a tennis elbow brace (usually for a few weeks as per your physio's advice) can be beneficial. 

3 - ultrasound if swelling visible, tens is also very helpful in combination with ultra sound.

4- as pain decreases, elbow and wrist flexibility and strengthening exercises can be started.

In addition to this conventional treatment of physiotherapy our clinic also has shockwave therapy. One sitting treatment.

Physical Therapy For Sports Injury Recovery!

It’s true that physical activities and sports can do wonders for your health. But, they can also be dangerous for your health, when it comes to injuries. While on one hand exercise provides you relief from stress, it can leave you with different kinds of injuries. However, there is no need to worry as these injuries are treatable. They can be treated by physical therapies. Here are some of the common injuries that can be cured by physical therapy:

  1. Ligament tearing and damage of tendons: This condition is very painful. It occurs due to any accident, trauma or serious injury at the time of exercising or sports activity. Sometimes, it is required to undertake a surgery in order to fix up the tendons or ligaments. However, physical therapy can treat this condition.
  2. Tendinitis: It is a common condition. It is nothing but the inflammation of the tissues around muscles and bones. This usually occurs in the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, or ankle.
  3. Fractures: This is a very common type of injury. Be it skiing or walking, you can anytime meet with an accident and develop fractures. Physical therapy is first applied to give back the strength of the muscles in the affected part.
  4. Arthritis: It is a common problem in athletes. It occurs due to repetitive motion, such as swinging a racket. It is similar to other conditions in which there are a muscle tear or sprain. These can be treated by physical therapy.
  5. Dislocations: This is a condition in which the bones move out of their positions. It might occur due to a sudden fall or blow during any physical activity.
  6. Low Back Pain: It is a common problem for ageing people. It can be mild to severe. If you are having a low back pain for more than six months, you must consult a doctor immediately. Frequent sessions of physical therapy are advised for over a prolonged period to get rid of the pain.

Physical therapy is not just to heal your injury. There are clinics which now offer preventive evaluations. These are done to determine the muscle weakness in your body. If the therapist finds any problem in the body, he tried to strengthen the muscle in the area to avoid chances of meeting accidents or falling prone to injuries.

3 Tips to choose a physical therapist

  1. Be sporty: Choose a clinic that offers treatment to athletes and is not for regular patients.
  2. Look for certifications: Find out whether the clinic is certified to meet your requirements. Check whether they have a sports certified specialist (SCS) or an orthopaedic clinical specialist (OCS)
  3. Do background check: Ask others to get feedback on the clinic. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

Apply ice in the painful area which would definitely help to greater extent. And you can wear elbow brace which would help you to keep your elbow warm and will give you protection.

Hi, You need to define the exact surgery that you have had done. This could be pain either from spinal instability or residual nerve impingement. Get an X ray of your LS spine lateral in flexion and extension along with MRI of the LS spine with screwing both SI joints and also get a complete haemogram along with CRP and HLA B 27 screening. Once you have these the treatment can be planned.

It may be because of muscle stiffness. And you required 12-18 month of treatment for spinal TB. That will be decided by Repeat MRI scan.

Dear lybrate-user, if the pain is there even after decompression and laminectomy then it seems the compression has occured again. Some of the nerve is being compressed and it is paining but it can also be due to operative procedure. Do not join for work now, it is strictly not recommended.

One of the main causes of foot pain is wearing shoes that do not fit properly. You can also develop foot pain if you are injured during high-impact exercise or sport activities, such as jogging or intense aerobics. There are a few general tips that can help relieve your discomfort. These include: 1. Applying ice to the affected area 2. Taking an over-the-counter pain reliever 3. Using foot pads to prevent rubbing on the affected area 3. Keeping the foot that is causing you pain elevated 4. Resting your foot as much as possible you can take many measures to help prevent ongoing foot pain. For example: 1. Choose comfortable, roomy, and well-cushioned shoes 2. Avoid shoes with large heels and narrow toe areas 3. Maintain a healthy weight 4. Stretch before engaging in vigorous exercise 5. Practice good foot hygiene 6. Always wear some type of footwear when outdoors to protect your feet. Please consult a physiotherapist nearby to find out the root cause and to apply physiotherapy modalities and exercises to reduce your pain.
