Are you suffering from pain in your elbow? You may be suffering with Tennis or Golfers Elbow.
We have many muscles which insert on or near the elbow joint. Any movement made using the elbow or wrist is stimulated by these muscles contracting. If these muscles are overworked, these muscles can become tight, causing continuous micro tears in the muscles and tendons, which if left, they cannot recover from as the area isn’t given long enough to repair before it is used again! And a vicious, painful cycle begins.
You may have heard of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) – this is what the above complaint is often labelled as. RSI is an inflammation of the tendons which causes you pain. The goo news is there is a lot you can do to help yourself and your injury recover! If the problem is acute (the pain has started in the last couple of weeks) we can treat the area with some acupuncture or some deep tissue work and gentle manipulation. If the problem is sub-acute or chronic (you have suffered with the pain for 2 weeks or over) our new fantastic shockwave machine may be able to help! The machine is proving excellent already at reducing and removing painful symptoms such as this!
If you have any questions or would like more information about our new state of the art machine, feel free to book in for one of our Free 15 Minute Shockwave Suitability Consultations. These sessions give you, the patient, chance to ask any questions, have a peek at the machine and chat through your complaint with our experienced clinicians.
