Some of these symptoms could be an indication of "Tennis Elbow". Physiotherapy can usually assist in the above presentations by a thorough clinical assessment. This will then be followed by an explanation of your likely diagnosis and treatment plan that’s tailored to your specific circumstances.
Most instances, whether for Tennis Elbow or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or issues related to the Wrist issues are very effective when treated with a combination of Physiotherapy and Acupuncture (see Acupuncture page) sessions. Treatments commence with Hands-On manual therapy followed by a Rehabilitation stage of stretching and strengthening techniques.
Hands-on manual therapy utilises Active Release Techniques (ART®), an effective and useful form of treating most elbow and wrist conditions. Our Physiotherapist, a certified ART® provider since 2009 with extensive experience treating and resolving a variety of symptoms, applies expert specialised Physio skills to reduce or eradicate pain.
It is anticipated from the commencement of treatment, assuming trauma has not been sustained, a patient should experience significant improvements with elbow/wrist pain within 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. Throughout the treatment phase, simple home exercises are prescribed for the patient that takes into account an individuals lifestyle and work environment.
In cases of trauma, further investigations are required, such as X-Rays or MRI’s may be needed, in which case we would be able to provide a referral.
