Condition’s Commonly Treated

Tennis Elbow

Treatment for Tennis Elbow at Pro Physio SA


Tennis elbow is a common overuse degenerative injury involving the muscles and tendons which attach to the lateral elbow. A misnomer about ‘tennis elbow’ is that it is a degenerative pathology rather than an inflammatory pathology. A person will experience an aching but sometimes sharp pain on the outside of their elbow. This is then worsened upon activity but eased with rest. Other common symptoms include: difficulty with gripping (e.g. turning on a tap, opening a door knob) or a feeling of weakness in the arm.

Poor ergonomics, poor posture and poor muscular endurance and strength of supporting muscles around the shoulder and shoulder blade all contribute to Tennis Elbow.


Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapists can thoroughly assess and diagnose the extent of the injury. They will then provide appropriate advice regarding injury management. Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapists can perform specific tests and assessment techniques to not only help diagnose your problem but to also identify any contributing factors to your problem. Most importantly, our Physiotherapists are all highly trained to be able to assess and plan a treatment program that is suitable for you to help you return to your normal activities.


Research has shown that treatment of tennis elbow requires activity modification and gradual strengthening exercises of your elbow and wrist muscles. Our physiotherapists will provide you with advice and educate you on activity modification. In addition to this, they will tailor a rehabilitation program specific to you. Our Musculoskeletal Physiotherapists are experienced in the treatment of tennis elbow which includes, but is not limited to: specific exercise prescription, stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, advice and education, electrotherapy, massage, dry needling/acupuncture and taping.
