THE STANDARD METHOD FOR THE TREATMENT
OF A TENNIS ELBOW
Tennis elbow (epicondylitis lateralis) is the most common orthopedic condition. Worldwide, 2% of the population suffer annually from tennis elbow and it is common for the disorder to occur between the fortieth and fiftieth years of life. Research has shown that as many as 10% of this age group suffer considerably from tennis elbow annually.
Contrary to what the name suggests, is a tennis elbow caused in less than 5% of cases by tennis. The cause could be a lot of repetitive movements with the effect of an overload of the attachment of the extensor tendon at the elbow joint or by degeneration (it is simply that this tendon is becoming older and less flexible).
With a tennis elbow, the pain is on the outside of the elbow. This pain can radiate to the forearm and wrist. The complaints come as you tighten the extensor muscles of the wrist and the hand, for example, if you want to pick up something with your hand.
ITEC Medical has developed a new revolutionary and patented injection method, so the chance of cure is greater than the current manual method.
