Tennis Elbow

ANATOMY

The lateral epicondyle of the humerus, a bony prominence on the outside of the elbow, is the common site of attachment for most of the extensor muscles of the forearm Tennis elbow is a painful inflammation of the tendon on the lateral aspect of the elbow, caused by the pull of the muscles, which extend the wrist and fingers.

MECHANISM OF INJURY

  • Strain from repeated, forceful wrist extension (eg. gripping tennis racquet during a shot), causing degeneration and inflammation of the associated tendons.

SYMPTOMS

  • Pain is felt mainly at the lateral aspect of the elbow, it may also radiate upwards along the upper arm, or, more commonly downwards along the outside of the forearm.
  • Grip strength is affected, causing problems with carrying things. In some cases light tasks, such as picking up a glass of water, are enough to precipitate pain.
  • A distinct tender point is elicited by pressure or percussion over the lateral epicondyle or justdistal to it.
  • Pain occurs over the lateral epicondyle when with resisted wrist extension or third finger extension. These signs strongly suggest a diagnosis of ‘tennis elbow’.

The beginning of Cairns Acupuncture –

This is a story that started in Victoria, went all over the world and came back and landed in Cairns –

After Graduating from her Bachelor of Health Science – Traditional Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture (with honours!!)  Tanya Galvin opened Synergy Acupuncture clinic in 2002 in Shepparton, Victoria.

In 2008  Tanya traveled the world working as an Acupuncturist, hypnotherapist, kinesiologist, spa therapist and Massage therapist on Cruise Ships around the world for Royal Carribean and Princess Cruise lines.

After five promotions to bigger and better cruise ships as a reward for doing a great job she decided to settle back in Australia.

Cairns Acupuncture was born….Tanya now uses all her treatment modalities to run a successful and busy clinical practice!
