The Premier Therapy Solution
Tennis Elbow Treatment (Lateral Epicondylitis)
Tennis elbow is a swelling of the tendons – that causes pain in the elbow and arm. Despite its name, you can still get tennis elbow even if you’ve never picked up a tennis racket. Any repetitive gripping activities, specifically using the thumb and first two fingers, may cause tendon irritation. Research says physical therapy is an effective method to treat tennis elbow. As an avid tennis player, Dr. Corsa applied her understanding of the bio-mechanics to create a treatment for this preventable, yet common injury. Our tennis elbow protocol includes laser therapy, manual manipulation and cyro-therapy.
