Want to cure that annoying Tennis Elbow pain?

'Tennis Elbow' or Lateral Epicondylalgia is a condition where the tendons of the wrist and finger extensors (muscles which lifts the wrist up or straightens the fingers) are overloaded and causes pain. 3% of the general population and 40% of all Tennis players suffer from Tennis Elbow. You are more prone to it if you perform repeated activities involving gripping or lifting.

Denise attended a post graduate course at the weekend about elbow pain. It was the "Advanced differential diagnosis and treatment of elbow pain" with Leanne Bisset.

Denise can expertly diagnose the cause of your elbow pain and if it is Tennis Elbow, she can treat it with:
1. Isometric (static) exercises which has been shown in research and clinically to significantly reduce tendon pain
2. Teach self mobilisation with movement techniques to ease pain (without having to take any pain killers!)
3. Taping to unload the tendon and ease pain
4. Advice on load management that is essential for all tendon conditions

Come and see Denise for an appointment if you're struggling with elbow pain!

You can also read more about elbow pain in our blog post coming up on Monday!

Fiona and Kate went to Brisbane for the opportunity to attend a 3 day course with 2 internationally acclaimed Physiotherapists: Dianne Lee and Gail Wetzler, who are leading physiotherapists in the ISM approach (Diane) and visceral work (Gail) from the Barral Institute.

It was a fantastic opportunity to hear directly from such esteemed practitioners. The conference focused on the pelvis, ribcage (thorax), clavicle/shoulder girdle and the cranium (skull). They also showed some exciting new techniques for neural mobilisation which Fiona and Kate have had fantastic clinical results with their clients even on their first day back in the clinic from the course.

Fiona and Kate found it very rewarding to be continually learning and increasing their expertise so that they can better help their clients. They are also very excited to share what they’ve learnt with the rest of the team at the next clinic in-service!
