Understanding Elbow Pain: Tennis Elbow and Golfer's Elbow

Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)

Tennis Elbow, previously termed "lateral epicondylitis," is now understood as a non-inflammatory condition. The more accurate description is "partially reversible but degenerative overuse-underuse tendinopathy." Key symptoms include:

  • Pain during resisted movements, especially in the third finger

  • Tenderness at the lateral epicondyle

  • Normal elbow motion range

Golfer's Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis)

Golfer's Elbow, similar to Tennis Elbow, was formerly known as "medial epicondylitis." It, too is a form of tendinopathy without inflammation, characterised by:

  • Pain and tenderness around the medial epicondyle

  • Often related to overuse or repetitive motion

Shock Wave Therapy: Transforming Treatment for Elbow Pain

Pioneering Elbow Pain Relief in Auckland

Shock Wave Therapy is an innovative, non-invasive treatment, particularly effective for conditions like Tennis Elbow and Golfer's Elbow.

How It Works:

  • The therapy delivers focused shock waves to the affected area.

  • These waves promote healing by stimulating the body's natural repair processes.

Research and Effectiveness:

A study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research (2019) highlighted the effectiveness of Shock Wave Therapy in treating lateral epicondylitis, showing significant pain reduction and improved function.

Benefits for Patients

  • A non-invasive, outpatient treatment with minimal side effects.

  • An excellent alternative to more invasive procedures, like cortisone injections, which may have short-term benefits but long-term drawbacks.
