How Effective Is Physical Therapy In The Treatment Of Tennis Elbow Injuries?

View on Youtube: Physical Therapy For Tennis Elbow: What If It Doesn’t Help?

If your Doctor prescribes Physical Therapy for your Tennis Elbow, but it doesn’t help – What then?

OR if you’ve yet to see your Doctor, how likely are Physical Therapy treatments to help you fully recover from your Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow?

(Or at least put you well on your way to healing and recovery in a reasonable period of time?)

In this podcast video, Allen Willette, from Tennis Elbow Classroom, addresses these difficult (and potentially controversial) questions, including:

First of all, how is Lateral Epicondylitis or ‘Tennis Elbow’ treated in a P.T. or Physiotherapy clinic?

Physical Therapy is a system for rehabilitation that has many different applications and treatments known as ‘Modalities.’

And here are the top five most common Physical Therapy Modalities used to treat and rehabilitate Tennis Elbow.

  1. Therapeutic Exercise – Rehab exercises that you do in the clinic with machines, weights or various resistance devices (and likely later on your own at home.)

  2. Cryotherapy – Ice and cold packs, ostensibly to “reduce” inflammation, (however inflammation is a natural part of the healing process, and not even significantly present in most Tennis Elbow cases.)

  3. Therapeutic Ultrasound or Ultrasonography – Ultrasound uses sound waves to heat or “stimulate” the muscles and tendons or other tissues involved.

  4. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy – A more powerful sound or “shockwave” that’s used to stimulate the tendons.

  5. E-stim / Electrical Stimulation (or Electrotherapy) – Electrodes are attached to your skin and a current is pulsed through them into your muscles causing them to involuntarily contract.

If you have Tennis Elbow and see your Doctor for it, there’s a good chance you’ll be prescribed a series of Physical Therapy treatments (along with Anti-inflammatory pills and a brace.)

Now, there’s no question that P.T. or ‘Physiotherapy’ treatment helps some Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow sufferers recover…

However, it also seems to dissapoint a large number of sufferers – And in many cases that’s after dozens of clinical visits, MONTHS of hard work and lost time and energy that’s gone forever.

Why is it that clinical Physical Therapy treatments often don’t help Tennis Elbow sufferers recover?

There’s a key part that’s often missing, in my opinion. See the full article for my rationale.
