Common in golfers, but not exclusive to them, Medial Epicondylitis can result from overuse of the elbow, as well as from sudden trauma. Unlike Tennis Elbow, where pain is felt in the outer elbow, Medial Epicondylitis sufferers feel pain in the inner elbow. This discomfort can occur during activity, but can also happen when resting.
Left unchecked, elbow injuries can cause significant pain and disability. Taking a small amount of time for physiotherapy at the onset of your injury will limit your discomfort and shorten your recovery time.
Beware of generic advice and self-diagnosis. Because every case of Epicondylitis is different the recommendations for your treatment must be unique. At Focus Physiotherapy, we know that discovery leads to recovery. Before starting treatment, it is essential to determine the cause of your elbow pain. A thorough examination by a Registered Physiotherapist will help you determine the path to full mobility. Your physiotherapist will find out which lifestyle factors increase the symptoms causing your pain, and help you make the necessary adjustments. And, because it’s impossible to avoid using your elbow during everyday activity, our team can teach you how to do things differently so you’ll cause less irritation and speed up your recovery process.
