It started with an ache on the outside of your elbow. It slowly developed into a constant pain that has made it difficult to complete certain routine tasks around the house and at work. Your doctor tells you that it’s tennis elbow. “Tennis elbow?” you exclaim. “But I’ve never even swung a tennis racquet in my life!”
The physical therapists at the offices of Therapeutics Unlimited understand that playing tennis accounts for only a small percentage of cases connected with this painful strain on the muscles and tendons of the elbow and forearm. Common activities that require repetitive motion such as painting, carpentry, mechanical work, plumbing, and playing a musical instrument can also lead to developing tennis elbow, which your doctor may refer to as lateral epicondylitis.
No matter what caused it, our physical therapists have the expertise to recognize and treat this common, painful injury. Our attentive staff works with our patients and their doctors in conducting a thorough examination and assessment. We then create a highly individualized course of treatment, stretching, and exercise designed to reduce the pain our patients are experiencing and restore the range of motion required to resume the activities they love.
Our physical therapists are board-certified professionals with years of training and experience in bringing the body’s complex mechanics back into balance. We employ a range of state-of-the-art techniques designed to add flexibility and strength. To help reduce pain and accelerate the healing process, we offer treatments including massage, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound.
No matter whether our patients want to get back on the tennis court, or back to the many other activities they’ve had to put on hold because of this debilitating injury, the friendly, attentive staff at the offices of Therapeutics Unlimited gets them into the swing of things.
