Tennis Elbow Rehabilitation Goals
There are three essential goals of exercise in Tennis Elbow rehabilitation.
- To strengthen your muscle,
- To encourage healing of your tendon,
- And to strengthen that injured tendon
This video podcast explores each of these goals and how exercise is meant to achieve them – And where it sometimes falls short!
There seems to be a quest to discover the “perfect” exercise formula for Tennis Elbow rehab: What kind? (Concentric? Eccentric?) How intensely? How many repetitions and sets? And how often?
Curiously, some medical researchers state that it’s hard to know what the right combination of exercise factors should be when it comes to stimulating healing without causing more damage to the injured tendon.
Exercise is undeniably an important part of the rehab process, yet perhaps we should ask:
“Is exercise really the most efficient way to heal the tendon in the first place?”
Should exercise be the most important part of your treatment program – or is there a higher priority in the early stages of healing?
