These tendons connect the forearm muscles to the arm bone. These muscles move the wrist, hand, and fingers. Physiotherapy is an effective treatment for tennis elbow.

Physiotherapy treatment for tennis elbow

Physiotherapy is very important in the treatment of tennis elbow. Initially, your physiotherapist can diagnose your problem, establish its severity and determine a treatment plan specific to you. This may involve activity modification, electrotherapy, soft tissue treatment such as massage and stretching, and the progression through a series of specific strengthening exercises. The physiotherapists at CAPAAR.com will also be able to assess and determine why you developed tennis elbow and help prevent a re-occurrence when you return to full activity.

Other physiotherapy options include:

  • Taping
  • Sports Injury Rehab
  • Proprioceptive Exercise
  • Postural Realignment

A ligament is a short band of tough fibrous connective tissue composed mainly of long, stringy collagen molecules. Ligaments connect bones to other bones in and around joints. They do not connect muscles to bones; that is the function of tendons. Ligaments limit the amount of mobility of a joint, or prevent certain movements altogether.

What Treatments can Physiotherapy offer for Knee Ligament Injuries?

The physiotherapists at CAPAAR the Best Sports Rehabilitation Center in Bangalore, Hulimavu can offer a variety of treatments for knee ligament injuries. Some of these treatments can include:

  • Post operative rehabilitation
  • Gait re-education

  • Electrotherapy
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Stretching exercises
  • Proprioceptive exercises

A sprained ankle (also known as a twisted ankle) commonly causes a tear within one or more of the ligaments of the ankle. The ligaments provide support to the ankle joint. The most common injury is to the ligaments on the outside of the ankle (lateral ligament complex). The ligaments on the inside of the ankle (medial ligament) can also be injured. Physiotherapy is a successful treatment for a sprained ankle.

After the initial RICE treatment, the aim of physiotherapy treatment is to restore the ankle to full function. This involves restoration of full range of motion, strengthening the muscles around the ankle, improving the balance (proprioception) with specific exercises and graduated return to full activity. Other treatments can include:

  • Exercise Programmes
  • Orthotics
  • Electrotherapy

Impingement syndrome is when the tendons of the muscles in the shoulder become irritated and swollen as they pass through a narrow passage called the subacromial space. Physiotherapy is an excellent way of treating shoulder impingement.

CAPAAR have the Best Sports Rehabilitation Center in Bangalore, Hulimavu. Our Doctor says that physiotherapy is the preferred treatment choice for impingement of the shoulder. Surgery is not often performed unless a course of physiotherapy has been completed. You physiotherapist may suggest relative rest and tell you to avoid overhead activities. Physiotherapy will focus on reducing your pain, stretching any shortened muscle groups and strengthening weak muscle groups to allow you to return to normal activities as soon as possible. Physiotherapy treatments may include:

  • Manipulation / Mobilization
  • Sports Injury Rehab
  • Exercise Programmes
  • Postural Realignment
A meniscal tear is a tear in the cartilage within the knee joint which is called the meniscus. This cartilage provides a shock absorbency system to the knee to aid with the prevention of pain and injury. Meniscal tears can be managed through surgery or through a conservative method. The conservative method is the preferred method of treatment as it avoids an invasive approach.

Physiotherapy for Meniscal Tears

Meniscal tears cause pain and alter the mechanics of the joint. With a meniscal tear the muscles around the knee can become weakened increasing the risk of further injury. Physiotherapy treatment can help to:

  • Decrease pain
  • Increase the function
  • Increase the strength
  • Restore normal muscle balance
  • Prevent injury
  • Restore normal function

Physiotherapy can help to achieve these through a variety of treatments. Some of the treatments may include the following:

  • Manual therapy
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Stretching exercises
  • Taping techniques
  • Electrotherapy
  • Ice and heat therapy
  • Education and advice
A posterior dislocation of the elbow joint is when a force is applied to the bones that join to make the elbow joint causing them to shift on one another. When this happens the joint surfaces are displaced and, therefore, are no longer in contact. Posterior dislocation of the elbow joint can be treated effectively by physiotherapy programme.

During your recovery, physiotherapy can help reduce your pain and promote your recovery. A sling may have to be worn for the first few weeks. Your physiotherapist can then provide you with a progressive exercise programme designed specifically for you. By increasing your muscle strength and the range of movement at your elbow this programme will increase your chances of making a full recovery and reduce the risk of ongoing elbow problems. Other treatments of benefit include:

  • Postural Realignment
  • Ergonomic Assessment
  • Taping
  • Soft Tissue Treatment
