Tennis elbow (lateral Epicodylitis) is a painful condition caused by overuse and muscle strain. The pain of tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony prominence on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also spread into your forearm and wrist. Tennis elbow affects 1% to 3% of the population overall and as many as 50% of tennis players during their careers. Less than 5% of all tennis elbow diagnoses are related to actually playing tennis. Tennis elbow affects men more than women. It most often affects people between the ages of 30 and 50, although people of any age can be affected.
Although tennis elbow usually effects tennis players it also affects other athletes and people who participate in leisure or work activities that require repetitive movements. Usually, the arm, elbow, wrist, and hand movement, especially while tightly gripping something is most common. Examples include golfers, baseball players, bowlers, gardeners or landscapers, house or office cleaners (because of vacuuming, sweeping, and scrubbing), carpenters, mechanics, and assembly-line workers. Basically, anyone that has repetitive motion and use of their elbow.
The pain associated with tennis elbow may radiate from the outside of your elbow into your forearm and wrist. Pain and weakness may make it difficult to:
Shake hands, squeeze objects, turn a door knob, open jars, hold objects such as a cup of coffee.
What is the solution to Tennis Elbow?
The Class IV K –Laser is at the heart of tech world when it comes to healing. It provides a safe, effective, non-invasive, painless solution for Tennis Elbow injuries. Patients respond exceptionally well to K-Laser treatment for this kind of injury and often see instant results. Many are healed completely after a few treatments. Each cell has its own energy field. The laser uses red and infrared light to stimulate the mitochondria of the cell, the power plant, which then releases the chemical ATP, Adenosine Tri Phosphate, which wakes the cells up so they can talk to each other again. It increases the healing time by 50% or more. Before you consider surgery or if you are being treated with Physical Therapy, give K- Laser a chance and try a drug free, painless way of healing.
