Tennis elbow

Shock wave therapy

Shock wave therapy using high-energy sound waves is  used to treat tennis elbow. A special device allows the shock waves to be passed through the skin around your elbow to the affected area. A local anaesthetic may also be given, as sometimes the shock waves can be painful. One or more treatment sessions may be needed.



If your tennis elbow symptoms persist for some time and are really troublesome and the shock wave therapy Does NOT HELP, then we advise an operation. The common operation to ease symptoms is a MYOTOMIE  of the tendon in mini-open-technique. Only a small number of people require surgery to relieve symptoms.
