Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow Treatment

This post is for anyone looking to treat that nagging tennis elbow (lateral epicondylalgia) or Golfers Elbow (medial epicondylalgia).

We treat this in 4 phases based on how flared-up the symptom are:

  1. Phase 1: Everything hurts. Soft tissue mobilization and isometrics.

  2. Phase 2: Pain is calming down a bit. Start strengthening with slow reps (3 second negatives, 3 second positives).

  3. Phase 3: Handling the strengthening exercises with minimal pain. Ready to move on to compound movements and carrying exercises

  4. Phase 4: Return to sport. Plyometric exercise, energy storage and release. Progressive increase of velocity/resistance/power.
