What is Epicondylitis?

Epicondylitis, or Tennis Elbow as it is popularly known, is the inflammation of the tissue connecting the forearm muscle to the elbow.

An epicondyle is when a bone juts out over a condyle. The condyle is the rounded end of the bone where it connects to another bone and the ligaments and tendons connect. Because this condition is most common in tennis players, it is also known as Tennis Elbow.

Symptoms of Epicondylitis :

  • The prominent symptoms of epicondylitis are pain radiating from the elbow towards the forearm and wrist. This makes the arm too weak to hold on to objects, turn them or shake hands with someone.
  • It is possible to get relief from the pain by using over-the-counter medicines and plenty of rest. However, if that doesn’t work, it is best to consult a doctor and get treated for the same.

Treating Epicondylitis Using Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

At Eravio Hospital, the doctors will recommend Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) for treatment of back pain and lower back pain. It is a non-invasive therapy that effectively reduces back pain allowing you to resume your daily routine with a new zest. The LLLT allows you to rejuvenate the use of your arm.

The procedure for LLLT for back pain and lower back pain is as follows:

  • The doctor places infra-red laser diode powered at low intensity (980 nm) at the back or lower back where it pains.
  • The photons from the laser energy enter the mitochondria of the cells in the affected tissue.
  • The energy from the photons powers the mitochondria, allowing them to heal themselves. This reduces the inflammation and the resulting pain.

It is important to note that LLLT needs to be supported with doctor-approved exercises to return to its original strength.
