Tennis elbow, Golfers elbow
The muscles stretching your fingers and wrists origins from a bone protuberance on the lateral side of the elbow.
For example, if you have been playing to much tennis, the muscles in the area will be affected so that inflammation may occur. However, this does not only happen for tennis players, but also inother repetitive movements like using the mouse by the computer. This conditin can be quite painful and small movements like the gripping function can be har to perform without a stabbing pain.
The pain can eventually radiate to the upper arm and towards the lateral side of the arm.
Acupuncture and massage are effective for tennis elbow. In between treatments you will be do some stretching exercises that I show you.
Sometimes I use electric stimulation and a heat lamp in the treatment. The electrical stimulation has an anti-inflammatory programme. You will be getting a tingling sensation in your arm during treatment.
