Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow Osteopathic Treatment

Penarth Osteopathic Practice are here to help treat pain in the elbow including Tennis elbow (where the cause of pain in found in the outside of the elbow joint) and Golfer’s elbow (with the cause of pain in the inner side the joint)

The large muscles of the forearm and hand originate at the elbow where they blend together to form a tendon which then attaches onto the bone.

It is at this point where the tendon attaches onto the bone that the body is vulnerable to type traction injuries.

This  traction can be brought on by such things as swinging a golf club or tennis racket or even from other repetitive and mechanically stressful tasks such as DIY.

The inflammation of the tendon or ‘tendinopathy’ can be successfully treated using osteopathic techniques to help with the healing process by reducing the strain upon the tendon, and further benefits can sometimes be gained through the use of strapping or splints at night.
