Tennis and golfer's elbows are medical conditions caused by inflammation in the elbow's outer and inner parts, respectively. These painful conditions can affect everyone, not just tennis players and golfers, despite the name. Tennis and golfer elbows are most likely to occur in men between 30 and 50 years old and are often a result of repetitive motions like typing, painting, or hand gripping during sports.

Tennis and a golfer's elbow can be frustrating conditions that prevent you from exercising and doing household chores. LaSara Medical Group offers low intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy to ease tennis and golfer's elbow symptoms and allow you to resume your normal activities.

What is Tennis and Golfer's Elbow Treatment?

Tennis and golfer's elbow occur in up to 10% of the population. Although the conditions are fairly common, conservative treatments like pain killers, steroid injections, and rest often require repetition and don't provide lasting results. Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), on the other hand, can effectively treat pain in a maximum of 6 treatments.

ESWT is an innovative non-invasive treatment that utilizes low intensity extracorporeal shockwaves to generate single bursts of energy. This energy promotes regeneration and reparative processes in tendons and soft tissues, alleviating symptoms associated with tennis and golfer's elbow.

Benefits of Tennis and Golfer's Elbow Treatment

Shockwave therapy has long been used in orthopedics, physiotherapy, and sports medicine to alleviate pain and restore mobility. Other benefits of shockwave therapy for tennis and golfer's elbow include:

  • Accelerated tissue repair
  • Pain relief
  • Accelerated cell growth
  • Improved mobility
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Increases blood flow to tendons and bone
  • Breaks up existing calcification
  • Releases trigger points

FAQs About Tennis and Golfer's Elbow Treatment

Pain associated with tennis and golfer's elbow is in part caused by Substance P, a neurotransmitter that communicates pain. Shockwave therapy can help lower the concentration of Substance P and provide lasting pain relief.

The exact number of treatments you require will primarily depend on the severity of your tennis and golfer's elbow and your body's healing response. While individuals report experiencing relief after just one treatment, we at LaSara Medical Group recommend getting 3 to 6 shockwave treatments to attain the best outcome.

Unlike some other treatments like pain killers and steroid injections, ESWT encourages the body to maintain results for a long time. Low intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy encourages muscles to become stronger and stimulates growth factors, allowing your body to work alongside the treatment for continuous, long-lasting results.
