Dry-Needling for Tennis Elbow

Bill Anderson loves to fish, but recently developed “Fishing Elbow,” aka Tennis Elbow. Tennis Elbow is a repetitive movement strain injury that required treatment for relief, and Bill opted for our dry needling option for quicker relief.

When dry needling, our physical therapist takes a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate deep myofascial trigger points. The needle allows our physical therapist to work deep into tissue that would not be easily manipulated manually. Trigger points are then disrupted, reducing muscle tension and pain. This also allows for a greater range of motion, allowing Bill to get back to the fishing he loves sooner.

All three Elite Physical Therapy and Balance locations have a physical therapist certified in dry needling. To inquire more about dry needling, contact us here: https://www.eliteptandbalance.com/request-an-appointment/
