Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Individuals with hobbies such as knitting that require fine motor skills and repetition are also predisposed.
Physical therapy techniques can help improve tissue quality and decrease compression on the nerve.
Lateral Epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow)
It is also symptomatic in individuals using their hands a lot, notably power tools, such as mechanics.
Physical therapy can help you strengthen the appropriate musculature to help ensure the forces placed on the tendon are dispersed appropriately.
Manual techniques such as Graston will also help improve the flexibility of the tissue. A brace can help for the short-term while you correct the underlying deficits in physical therapy.
Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer’s Elbow)
Similar to the above diagnoses, repetitive movements worsens the condition and rest is strongly recommended to help promote tissue healing.
Physical therapy can help improve the tissue flexibility to decrease excess stress on the tendon. This in association with proper strengthening will ensure you can get back to the sport your love pain-free!
