What is Tennis Elbow?
Tennis Elbow is also known as lateral epicondylitis or lateral elbow Tendinopathy. It is commonly considered to be overuse or overload, and results in pain on the outside part of the elbow, with functional restrictions in gripping and lifting activities.
Who is this program suitable for?
This program is aimed at treating and recovering from both acute and chronic Tennis Elbow. Whether it is a recent injury or you have suffered for some time we take you step by step from injury to full fitness. Ideal for both beginner and elite-level athletes.
How does it work?
The app tells you exactly what to do each day (Today’s tasks) and records your progress to be reviewed later by yourself, or your coach/physio. Paul guides you through the program via a series of videos explaining each phase and the exercises and treatment methods involved.
The program is criteria-based, not time-based. You progress through the phases, only moving on to the next phase when you have reached specific exit criteria.
The program consists of 4 phases.
Phase 1 begins as soon as possible following the injury. The aim of phase 1 is to reduce pain and inflammation.
The aim of phase 2 is to gradually increase the load through your Elbow.
The aim of phase 3 is to further increase the load through the tendon in an increased range.
The aim of phase 4 is to further increase the load through the tendon using eccentric exercises. It compromises: • Cold therapy • Massage • Bracing • 2 strengthening exercises.
What is included?
The program consists of treatment and healing, stretching & mobility, strengthening, activation, movement control and functional exercises, as well as cardiovascular workouts to maintain fitness whilst you recover.
