Myotherapy for Tennis Elbow

Lateral epicondylitis, more commonly known as tennis elbow, is a condition of the elbow caused by overuse. Myotherapy for tennis elbow involves the use of massage techniques, dry needling, joint mobilisations, and other techniques to help address the elbow pain.

Symptoms of tennis elbow

The symptoms of tennis elbow usually develop gradually. In most cases, the pain starts off mild and continues to worsen over weeks or months. Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Pain or burning on the outer part of the elbow
  • Weak grip strength
  • Sometimes pain at night

Causes of tennis elbow

Contrary to the name, tennis players are not the only ones who can develop this condition. Painters, plumbers, and carpenters are particularly prone to developing this condition due to the repetitive nature of their work. Tennis elbow develops when the tissue connecting the forearm muscles to the elbow become irritated, leading to pain and tenderness at the outside of the elbow.


How can Myotherapy / Remedial massage help?

Myotherapy for tennis elbow aims to address the presenting pain and to decrease the likelihood of reoccurence.

  • Massage techniques to the forearm and triceps can help address muscle knots and tightness that are contributing to the elbow pain
  • Dry needling to the forearm and painful areas to increase healing rate and reduce pain
  • Address postural imbalances that could be contributing to symptoms
  • Stretching and exercise advice to prevent reoccurrence of injury
