Playing tennis and unilateral movements: this is how tennis elbows develop

Many tennis players will at some point have to deal with tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis. This is because in tennis you often mainly strain the same tendons and muscles in your forearm. Tennis players over the age of 35 are more likely to suffer from this annoying condition. The extensor muscles are overloaded or in the wrong way and this eventually manifests itself in a tennis elbow. Is tennis bad for you? Certainly not! Keep hitting balls on the tennis court and beating your competitors during (friendly) matches. A tennis elbow is annoying, but can be remedied with the right treatment. In addition, tennis elbow can also occur during other activities, such as household chores or various activities.

EPTE therapy is a good treatment for tennis elbow

You want to get rid of pain as soon as possible. We call the treatment that helps very effectively with tennis elbow EPTE therapy. EPTE stands for ultrasound-guided percutaneous therapeutic electrolysis. The therapy does not hurt very much, but the electric current can briefly hurt a little. The amount of pain is nothing compared to the pain you are walking around with right now. Before one of our physiotherapists determines your treatment, he or she will investigate the cause of your pain. 

This way it can also be determined how many treatments you need to get rid of your tennis elbow. This can be done after just one treatment, but it also regularly happens that multiple treatments are needed. We will discuss the expected quantity with you and can of course always adjust it. We also recommend in a number of situations to combine this therapy with another type of therapy, such as sports therapy. Thanks to the therapies, your muscles and tendons recover and you will soon be able to fully participate in the tennis season again.
