What is Tennis Elbow?

Tennis Elbow (also know as Lateral Epicondylitis) responds extremely well to Active Release Technique treatments. With just four to six treatments, we have a proven success rate of well over 90%.

What causes it?

Tennis Elbow is caused by inflammation of the tendons at their attachment sites.

Tennis Elbow usually occurs when rigid, underused tendons are suddenly stressed. This can be caused by direct trauma, overuse, improper technique, equipment error, and even problems from repetitive motion. Repetitive motion is the most common cause of Tennis Elbow.

Why is it so painful?

With Tennis Elbow, when you experience muscle and tendon pain, the tendon is literally being pulled from the bone. This injury starts with microscopic tears in the muscle tissue that lead to a series of inflammatory responses including:

  • Tissue inflammation.
  • Scarring and formation of adhesions.
  • Shortening of the tendon.

Adhesions can occur as a result of acute injury, repetitive motion, and constant pressure or tension. ART eliminates the pain and dysfunction associated with these adhesions.

If this problem is not treated correctly your elbow will continue to be re-injured. Worse, your game will suffer!

How can ART resolve Tennis Elbow?

ART is a relatively new, and highly successful approach, for the treatment of injuries to muscles, tendons, fascia, nerves, and surrounding soft tissues. ART has proven to be very effective for the treatment of Tennis Elbow, with a success rate exceeding 90%. Traditional treatments address only one area, but ART restores unimpeded motion and function to all soft tissues associated with Tennis Elbow.

ART provides a means to diagnose and treat the underlying causes of Cumulative Trauma Disorders. Typical symptoms include numbness, tingling, burning, and aching. The goal of ART is to:

  • Restore optimal texture and motion.
  • Restore the function of the soft tissue.
  • Release any entrapped nerves or blood vessels.

This is accomplished through the removal of adhesions in the soft tissues through the application of specific ART protocols.

Where can I find more information about ART?

We have recently published the first book about Active Release Techniques, written specifically for the general public.

Release Your Pain - Resolving Repetitive Strain Injuries with Active Release Techniques® (ART®) is an informative, easy-to-read book, that helps you to understand the true cause of repetitive strain injuries.

Did you know that many common therapies (such as medication, physiotherapy, chiropractic treatment, massage, electrical muscle stimulation, rest, exercise, and surgery) often fail to effectively resolve Tennis Elbow. Read Release Your Pain now to understand why these treatments often fail to solve your problem, understand the real cause of the problem, and see how ART can help to resolve your problem.

Understand the true cause of your pain, learn how it can be resolved, then use the specially designed exercises included in this book to prevent its reoccurrence.

Read our new book, Release Your Pain, to see how Active Release Techniques can help you with your injuries.
