Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow (lateral Epicondylitis) is a common condition in which the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender due to repetitive strain. The common extensor tendon at its insertion into the lateral epicondyle of the humerus becomes tendinopathic, simple activities such as gripping and lifting become painful severely affecting a patients function and ability to carry out basic activities.

The exercises shown are encouraging tendon healing by increasing the progressive load through the damaged tendon to support collagen remodelling and adapt it to the demands of day to day activities. Please progress through these exercises at your own individual pace ensuring correct technique is adhered to throughout. Please seek advice from your healthcare practitioner if symptom fail to improve.
