ORTHOPEDIC REHABILITATION PROGRAM TREATMENT PLAN


Tennis Elbow


Tennis elbow is a type of tendinitis — swelling of the tendons — that causes pain in the elbow and arm. These tendons are bands of tough tissue that connect the muscles of your lower arm to the bone. Despite its name, you can still get tennis elbow even if you’ve never been near a tennis court. Instead, any repetitive gripping activities, especially if they use the thumb and first two fingers, may contribute to tennis elbow. Tennis elbow is the most common reason that people see their doctors for elbow pain. It can pop up in people of any age, but it’s most common at about age 40.


Program of treatment:


– Laser therapy for pain relief through accelerating the inflammatory phase of the healing process, stimulating B endorphin secretion which is associated with inhibiting synthesis of  prostaglandin, decreasing the conduction velocity  of the sensory nerve and stimulating the gate control to inhibit pain pathway

– Ultrasound for pain relief by increasing extensibility of tendon muscles, allowing micro message effect, vasodilatation of the blood vessels and Increasing number of white blood cells that invade the microorganisms

– Kinesio Tapping to improve circulation, decrease muscle spasm and support joints.

– Shock waves trigger biological effects which lead to faster and long-term healing and regeneration of the tissue.

– Deep friction message to break down adhesions
