Tennis elbow, also known as lateral epicondylitis, is a condition that occurs when tendons in the elbow are weakened. This happens when certain motions, that put a strain on the elbow, are repetitively performed.
Tennis players rely heavily on arm movements to maneuver their rackets and may end up damaging their tendons. Anyone whose job features repetitive motions of the arm can develop tennis elbow.
Shockwave therapy can help in treating this condition. Studies also show that shockwave therapy for tennis elbow has led to an improvement in pain, function, and grip strength.
Storz Medical’s MASTERPULS® Ultra MP50, MP100, and MP200 and MASTERPULS® ONE machines, available at Shockwave Canada, can be used to effectively improve mobility and functionality.
The F15 White Soft transmitter head, designed by Storz Medical, is effective for treating conditions such as tennis elbow where there is not a lot of soft tissue surrounding the damaged area.. The soft pressure waves, emitted by the transmitter, are very effective in treating the condition.
