A brief summary of what you'll find inside our treatment guide.
Epicondylitis is a chronic condition, which means that it often develops over a long period. It presents as pain on either the inside or the outside of the elbow. (Pain on the inside is commonly known as ‘golfer’s elbow’ whereas pain on the outside is known as ‘tennis elbow’).
Epicondylitis occurs when the muscles in the forearm are overused causing the point where they attach to the elbow to become irritated, painful, and sore.
Despite being associated with sport, any occupation or activity involving repetitive movements of the hands and wrists can lead to the development of the condition.
Signs and symptoms
Epicondylitis often feels better with rest and a little pain relief but without effective rehabilitation, it always comes back when returning to normal activity, sport or exercise.
- Pain which is worse during or after exercise but easier with rest
- Pain when the sides of the elbow are pressed or touched
- Tight or tender muscles in the forearm below the elbow
- Difficulty gripping, lifting or carrying everyday objects
Acute phase management
Most people fail in their treatment of Epicondylitis because they are unable to identify the cause of their pain. Once the source has been identified, effective steps can be taken to manage the symptoms.
Our treatment guide will help you to identify what’s causing your pain and create the right conditions to begin effective rehabilitation.
Post-acute phase management
Post-acute phase rehabilitation involves the staged introduction of isometric, concentric and eccentric muscle stretches, scar tissue removal and proprioceptive exercises to strengthen the forearm tendons and connective tissues.
Condition-specific exercises will help you achieve a full, pain-free range of movement to stop the symptoms coming back.
Epicondylitis responds well to self-treatment and conservative care; although recovery times are dependent on the severity of the condition and how diligent you are with your rehabilitation.
Our treatment guide provides comprehensive tips and advice to achieve a full recovery in the shortest possible time.
If you follow the treatment guide correctly and are diligent with the rehabilitation programme, then complications are unlikely.
Without correct rehabilitation damage and scar tissue within the forearm, tendons lead to ongoing pain and reduced range of movement.
Periodic stretching and joint mobilisation to keep the muscles lengthened and reduce inflammation are some of the techniques contained in our clinically proven treatment guide to help prevent reoccurrence.
