Tennis Elbow

Physiotherapy for tennis elbow

Physiotherapy for tennis elbow

A physiotherapy program that combines self-manipulation, elbow manipulation, and exercise. Without adjusting the elbow, progressive wrist exercise is another option. Indication Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis (LE), is characterised by pain that lasts for six weeks or more; however, early initiation of activity may also be beneficial. LE is a long-term neurological problem brought on by microtrauma (rather than an acute inflammatory process). As a result, lateral epicondylalgia is another name that is used. A physiotherapy program will typically involve 8 to30-minute sessions with a physiotherapist. To find the best physiotherapist, visit Rev Sdn bhd.

Ball Squeeze

In your hand, place a tennis ball or soft rubber ball.

Use up to 25 squeeze-and-release cycles.

Up to three times a day, perform this stretch. Use a softer item, such as a sponge or a pair of balled-up socks.

Wrist turn

At making an L-shape with your elbow by your side, bend it at a right angle.

Hold your hand out palm upward.

Gently rotate your wrist so that the palm is facing downward.

Repeat between three and five times.
