Tendinitis and Tennis Elbow

The Anti-inflammatory Effect Produced by Laser Therapy.


LLLT / Acupuncture Treatment

Tennis Elbow, a very common condition in labor/sports respond to low-level laser therapy, also called cold laser. It helps to desensitize irritated nerves which reduce pain and can lead to a sustained reduction in nerve irritability which is the main reason for shingles pain. The anti-inflammatory effect produced by laser therapy also provides the site of pain, an opportunity to repair tissue, and improve mobility. The therapy cannot reverse any physical damage of bone, tendon, nerve, and other related structures but mainly play a role in the anti-inflammatory effect.


Common Known Conditions


Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a painful condition that occurs due top the overloading of tendons in the elbow, usually as a result of repetitive motions of the wrist and arm. Even though the name suggests, athletes aren’t the only people who develop tennis elbow. People such as plumbers, painters, carpenters, and butchers may also develop this problem as their work involves repetitive motion of the elbow.
The pain of tennis elbow happens mainly where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to a bony bump on the outside of your elbow. Pain can also reach your forearm and wrist.
Rest and over-the-counter pain relievers often help provide relief for tennis elbow. If conservative treatments prove useless or if symptoms causedisability, your doctor might suggest surgery.


Tennis elbow is an injury that is a result of overuse and muscle strain. It is causedby repeated contraction of the forearm muscles that you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. The repeated motions and stress to the tissue may lead to a series of small tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony prominence at the outside of your elbow.
As evident by the name, playing tennis especially repeated use of the backhand stroke with poor technique is one possible cause of tennis elbow.
