Surgery-Free Treatment Options for Tennis Elbow

Rehab for Tennis Elbow Atlanta GAYou don’t have to play tennis to fall victim to the overuse injury known as tennis elbow. It’s caused by an inflammation of the tendons in the elbow, and everything from swinging a tennis racquet to cutting up veggies in the kitchen can cause it, triggering pain that radiates from your elbow down to your hands and wrists.

One of the best ways to manage the pain and symptoms of tennis elbow is to utilize an individualized rehabilitation program like the ones provided at Sovereign Rehabilitation. Our use of manual and aquatic therapy, joint mobilization and manipulation, muscle energy techniques, neuromuscular reeducation (a technique that retrains injured muscles to work properly), and more will help to reduce pain, inflammation, and joint weakness, and speed up your recovery.
