Tennis & Golfers Elbow

In the last few years it has been discovered that many of the pains at the elbow are frequently referred from the spine so this should be checked initially because the correct treatment applied to the spine can quickly resolve these problems and no amount of treatment to the elbow will work if the problem is referred from the spine. Actual overuse or strain of the tendon origins of the forearm extensor muscle (tennis elbow) or forearm flexor muscles (golfers elbow) are rarer and take longer to sort so you are likely to need help to resolve them and get you back to full functioning. Tendons have the poorest blood supply of all the tissues in the body and therefore are really slow at mending and often donít improve at all if not treated correctly. You donít have to have played tennis or golf to acquire these injuries, they are named because of the movements that these sports require repeatedly and they can lead to these problems. Physiotherapist Kath Hamflett at Barnt Green Physiotherapy has many years of experience treating these problems and will thoroughly assess you on your first visit to determine the cause of your problem and then instigate an appropriate course of treatment.
