Is a massage good for tennis elbow?
The treatment for overexertion of the muscles and tendons and repetitive strain injuries needs the expert massage and soft-tissue therapists. Massage therapists are exceptionally skilled and very well trained for these circumstances. The therapist will assess the tenderness at the elbow, and pain or dysfunction in any part of the limb. They will also evaluate the range of motion, question you about the symptoms you face, and also about the activities that worsen the pain or mitigate it. These details are then used to formulate a treatment plan to reduce the pain, restore the functioning of the arms, and return to normalcy.
A variety of treatment options are used by the therapists in the treatment of tennis elbow. Based on the experience and training, they may use one or more of the below techniques. They may also combine the below techniques with cross-fiber friction and petrissage:
- Deep tissue massage
- Myofascial release
- Active release technique
- Neuromuscular therapy
