Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a common condition that affects people who engage in repetitive gripping or wrist extension activities, such as tennis players, golfers, and manual laborers. It is characterized by pain and tenderness on the outer part of the elbow and forearm and can significantly impact one’s ability to perform daily activities. Tennis elbow can be relieved by taking rest applying ice, physiotherapy, medications, injections, and ANF Therapy®️. This review discusses the best ways to fix tennis elbow.
Rest and ice: The first step in treating tennis elbow is to rest the affected area and apply ice to reduce inflammation and pain. Resting the arm and avoiding activities that aggravate the pain, such as gripping or lifting heavy objects, is recommended.
Physiotherapy: Physiotherapy is a highly effective treatment option for tennis elbow. It involves exercises to strengthen the forearm muscles and improve flexibility and manual therapy techniques to reduce pain and inflammation. A physiotherapist can also advise using braces or straps to support the affected area during activity.
Surgery: Surgery is typically a last resort for treating tennis elbow and is only considered when conservative treatments have failed. The procedure involves removing damaged tissue from the elbow and repairing any tears or damage to the tendon.
