Treatment tennis elbow

The therapy of a tennis elbow is identical with the treatment of a golfer´s elbow. The first step is manual therapy because the proper function of the joints of the upper limbs as well as the area between cervical and thoracic spine is important for holding or gripping something. With manual therapy, we can mobilize the hand and finger joints, the elbow joint and the shoulder girdle as well as the neck. We recommend a combination of manual therapy and acupuncture to relieve the pain and relax the affected muscles. Loosening fascia with osteopathy and cupping therapy help relax arms, shoulders and neck.

Patients can also treat themselves for a couple of days with the nightly application of a warm paste, consisting of extracts of the willow bark, and the oral administration of Traumeel tablets. Subject to the findings, shockwave therapy of the stretch tendons can be carried out. Due to the high energy in the affected tissue, microscopic tears at the surface of the bones are provoked in order to initiate the self-healing of our own body. Furthermore, the transmission of pain signals to the brain is inhibited.
