If a person bumps their elbow and they have pain, which turns into tendonitis but continues to hurt for a while, this can lead to a chronic problem. The problem is one where the tendon or tendon attachment can become scared. The pain is more in the minor category versus the acute phase as it tendinitis.
How physical therapy helps
At EPT, we use manual techniques to counteract the effects of tendinosis and work on the length/tension relationship between the muscles and tissues involved. EPT utilizes cold laser, H-Wave therapy, manual therapy and Ultrasounds to counteract the effects of a person having tendinosis. This condition can last for some time, so getting treatment will prevent more scarring and deleterious effects.
If you think you may be suffering from tendinosis, please Contact Us today at Lansing, MI Center to request an appointment and start treatment immediately.
