What Conditions Do We Treat?
Tennis Elbow Treatment
Is a common pain on the outside (lateral epicondyle) of the elbow that is sometimes associated with Tennis. More often it is a repetitive injury that can be caused by overuse of the wrist. Treatment includes splinting for the pain and slowly strengthening to return to function.
Golfers Elbow Treatment
Is characterised by pain on the inside (medial epicondyle) of the elbow. It results from overuse of the muscles that bend the wrist or by repetitively bending and straightening the elbow. It can be treated with splinting, massage and strengthening.
Skier’s Thumb Treatment
Is caused by a strain or tear in the ligament that supports the thumb joint. It often occurs due to a sudden hyperextension (backwards) force to the thumb. It is common in football, basketball and netball but most often happens skiing when the ski pole gets jammed against the thumb. Early treatment with a splint is best.
