If you do have “tennis elbow” part of your recovery will be exercises to strengthen the muscles which have been injured.
One of these exercises which could help before you seek treatment is eccentric wrist extension…don’t worry we will show you what this is!!
Here is a link to a video (we think it’s Spanish!) it shows you exactly how to do the exercise.
I would recommend 3 sets of 12, every other day using a light weight or resistance band. You may experience mild discomfort, but the exercise shouldn’t worsen your elbow pain. If it does, stop doing the exercise and call us for a consultation.
For an assessment, diagnosis and treatment of your elbow pain, please call us to book in for a consultation with one of our physiotherapists – 01438 317037.
