Physiotherapy Treatment in London for the Rehabilitation the tendonitis – Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow
Tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow are terms used to describe conditions usually caused by overuse of the muscles in your arm and forearm. Symptoms can occur suddenly after a short period of excessive use of the wrist and hand for activities that involve lifting, pulling or twisting. In most cases, however, symptoms develop over a period of weeks or months. Physiotherapy is an effective way to manage tendonitis both short and long-term so you can continue performing your daily activities or sports without constant pain and discomfort.
Our London physiotherapist will help you manage any acute pain you experience with transverse massage, also known as deep friction massage. It is called that because it is applied transversely to the specific tissue involved in the injury and aids the process of healing by enhancing circulation and return of fluids in the affected area. It is the most efficient technique to treat elbow tendonitis and is therefore used on professional athletes.
You can facilitate the healing process on your own, by also resting your arm as much as possible and applying ice on the affected area if it’s swollen. Once any inflammation has subsided, our physiotherapist will create a customised exercise programme for you in order to reduce pain, restore normal joint range of motion and rebuild muscle strength. Taping and bracing might also be helpful in certain occasions.

What is Tennis Elbow? What is Golfer’s Elbow?
Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis, tendonitis of the outside of your elbow) is the most common overuse syndrome in the elbow. It is an overuse injury in the muscle tissue that connects the outside of the elbow to the wrist and fingers. Only a small proportion of people suffering from this injury actually acquire it from playing tennis. In most patients it is caused due to repetitive manual activity that requires lifting, pulling or twisting.
Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis tendonitis of the inside of your elbow) is an overuse injury in the muscle tissue that connects the inside of your elbow to your wrist or fingers. It is common amongst people that use repetitive, forceful movements in their profession, especially movements that require tight gripping such as using tools.
What are the Symptoms of Tennis Elbow? What are the Symptoms of Golfer’s Elbow?
The symptoms can appear suddenly or develop over a long period of time. They are similar for both syndromes and differ only in the area where the pain is localised.
The main symptoms of Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow are:
- Pain in the elbow area, forearm and wrist
- Difficulty performing common tasks that involve lifting or twisting, such as lifting a full glass, gripping a fork or knife, opening a jar or turning a door knob
- Elbow stiffness
- Tenderness on the inside of the elbow (golfer’s elbow) or the outside of the elbow (tennis elbow)
- Weakness in the forearm, wrist and hand
