Dry Needling For Tennis Elbow


Podcast Cover: Dry Needling For Treating Tennis Elbow

Dry Needling is a treatment for Tennis Elbow, Golfer's Elbow and other conditions that involves repeatedly sticking a needle into tissues (usually muscles or tendons) which are not healing properly in the hopes of stimulating a healing response.

Or for the purpose of "deactivating" highly-irritable, pain-causing spots in muscles, known as a 'Trigger Points.'

The needle in question can be either a Medical Hypodermic needle – (which is used in this case to penetrate the tissues but without injecting anything)...

OR it can be an Acupuncture needle, which is often referred to as 'Trigger Point Dry Needling' or 'Intramuscular Stimulation' (IMS) and which is a much more common practice.

It seems unfortunate, though, that the term Dry Needling has come to refer to two very different treatments – utilizing two very different types of needles...

After all, there's a very big difference between a thin, filament Acupuncture needle and a Medical Hypodermic Syringe!

So, in this episode, I'm going to cover separately what I think should be considered two distinct treatments.

The 3 Key Principles Of Tennis Elbow Rehab Exercise


Are you looking for which exercises to do when you have Tennis Elbow – And which exercises are best?

You're in the right place – But let me ask you this, first: Are you sure it's the right time to begin those exercises?

Because, I have to tell you, there IS a right time and a wrong time to begin your Tennis Elbow rehab exercises!

And I'd to help you avoid the common mistake of starting them at the wrong time – Or in the wrong order, because it can make a huge difference to your healing and recovery!

So, let's talk about three key principles – that you won't likely hear anywhere else:

  • Why Tennis Elbow Rehab Exercises are NOT the top priority – in the beginning of your healing process,

  • How and why starting those Exercises right away often aggravates the injury,

  • WHAT the BEST Exercise to begin your Tennis Elbow rehab IS (when it is time to start)

  • (And why that exercise is NOT actually Wrist Extension)

So, put down those weights, bands or rubber bars for a minute – and let's reconsider this thing.

Because after 15 years of experience in treating Tennis Elbow and coaching people online, I've seen WAY too many people get these 3 things wrong…

(along with all the other treatment mistakes, like taking pills, icing, wearing a brace and getting Cortisone Shots)
