Our sports physiotherapists in London are highly experienced in sports injuries such as tennis & golf elbow tendonitis (tendinitis)
Tendonitis in general (wrist, Achilles tendon…) and more particularly tennis elbow and golf elbow is commonly caused by the overuse of the tendons and muscles in the area of the tendonitis (arm and forearm for example) and often due to repetitive lifting, pulling and twisting movement. In most cases, the injury develops gradually over weeks or months – this is why sports physiotherapy appears very effective in managing both acute and chronic pain due to tendonitis, by releasing symptoms so you can get back to your training without pain or discomfort.

More information about tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow injury, sports physiotherapy treatment in London with our specialists in elbow tendonitis rehabilitation
What is tennis elbow?
Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a tendonitis of the outside of the elbow. It is an injury caused by the overuse of the muscle tissue that connects the outside of the elbow to the wrist and fingers. Most often, it is due to repetitive movements such as lifting, pulling or twisting during common activities, but some people end up catching it while playing tennis.
What is golfer’s elbow?
Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis) is a tendonitis of the inside of the elbow, caused by the overuse of the muscle tissue that connects the inside of the elbow to the wrist and fingers. It often happens to people who use repetitive movements in their daily life, profession or sports (such as golf) that require tight gripping on tools.
What are the symptoms of tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow?
Consequences can be acute or appear gradually over a long period of time. The affected area might not be the same, but symptoms remain similar in both tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow:
- Pain towards the elbow, forearm and wrist
- Restricted mobility and difficulty to perform movements such as lifting, pulling, gripping or twisting
- Stiffness in the elbow
- Tenderness on the inside or outside of the elbow
- Weakness in the forearm, wrist and hand
- Occasional neck pain and stiffness
What can physiotherapy do to treat tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow?
Our specialised physiotherapist will be able to help you manage your pain and symptoms with the help of deep friction massage that will enhance circulation and fluid in the affected area, accelerating the recovery. This technique is very efficient and often used on professional athletes.
By resting your arm as much as you can and regularly applying ice on the injury, you also have the possibility to fasten your healing process on your own. When the inflammation has diminished, the physiotherapist will be able to help reduce the pain and restore your strength and mobility with physio techniques such as stretching, strengthening, taping and bracing.
