Shockwave Therapy for Tennis Elbow
Welcome to Houston Shockwave, where we offer cutting-edge shockwave therapy for tennis elbow. If you are experiencing pain and discomfort in your elbow, you may be suffering from tennis elbow, a common condition that affects athletes, manual laborers, and anyone who engages in repetitive arm movements.
Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is an overuse injury that affects the tendons and muscles on the outside of the elbow. It is caused by repetitive or excessive strain on the tendons that attach to the lateral epicondyle, a bony bump on the outside of the elbow.
Tennis elbow is most commonly caused by activities that require repetitive wrist extension or gripping, such as playing tennis, golf, or racquetball, painting, typing, or using hand tools. When the tendons and muscles on the outside of the elbow are overused or strained, they can become damaged or inflamed. This can lead to pain, tenderness, and weakness in the affected arm.
The symptoms of tennis elbow usually develop gradually over time and may initially be mild. However, as the condition worsens, the pain and other symptoms can become more severe and debilitating.
The most common symptom of tennis elbow is pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow, near the lateral epicondyle. The pain may also radiate down to the forearm or up to the shoulder, and it may be exacerbated by certain activities, such as gripping, lifting, or twisting.
In addition to pain, tennis elbow may also cause stiffness, weakness, and numbness or tingling in the affected arm. The symptoms may be worse in the morning or after periods of rest, and they may improve with activity but worsen again afterward.
At Houston Shockwave, we offer a non-invasive, safe, and effective treatment for tennis elbow using shockwave therapy. Shockwave therapy is a cutting-edge technology that uses high-frequency sound waves to stimulate healing and reduce pain in the affected area.
During a shockwave therapy session, a handheld device is placed on the skin over the affected area. The device then emits high-frequency sound waves that penetrate deep into the tissue, stimulating the body’s natural healing process.
Shockwave therapy has been shown to be effective in treating tennis elbow by promoting the regeneration of damaged tissue, increasing blood flow to the affected area, and reducing inflammation and pain. It is a non-invasive, outpatient procedure that requires no anesthesia or recovery time.
The benefits of shockwave therapy for tennis elbow include:
Non-invasive: Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive procedure that does not require surgery or injections.
Safe: Shockwave therapy is a safe treatment that has been used successfully for decades to treat a wide range of conditions.
Effective: Shockwave therapy has been shown to be effective in treating tennis elbow, with many patients experiencing significant pain relief and improved mobility after just a few sessions.
Quick and convenient: Shockwave therapy sessions typically last between 15 and 30 minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
Cost-effective: Shockwave therapy is a cost-effective alternative to more invasive treatments such as surgery or injections.
