Epicondylitis

The most common type of pain in the elbow is known as "Tennis Elbow", that is, epicondylitis. The repetitive movements of the elbow joint cause small tears in the tendons, especially where the tendons are inserted in the bones. These injuries currently occur more frequently as a result of a professional occupation than as a result of sports activities

Objectives of a rehabilitation program:

  • Improving mobility and joint movement

  • Relief from pain and inflammation

  • General physical reconditioning

  • Teaching and counselling of support products (orthotics, splints, etc.)

  • Return to work activities , daily life and sports activities
