Tennis Elbow is also called lateral epicondylitis. Repetitive motions of the forearm, such as using a manual screwdriver, washing windows, or hitting a backhand in tennis play can injure and inflame of large tendons attached to the lateral epicondyle of elbow from the muscles of the forearm.  The pain is generally on the outside of the elbow and might be accompanied by warmth and swelling. Full range of motion of elbow is maintained, as the inner joint is not affected, but the pain is usually more evident toward the end of the day. Twisting motions or activities that strain the tendon generally gives more pain. Tennis elbow pain treatment by Dr Pardeshi Acupuncture Pain Therapy can give satisfactory pain relief in Nashik along with usual management.

One treatment that could be helpful for relieving the symptoms of tendonitis and tennis elbow is acupuncture. It relives tennis elbow pain by stimulating release of endorphins and other neurohumoral factors and changes the processing of pain in the brain and spinal cord, delivering analgesia via alpha-adrenoceptor mechanisms, increasing the release of adenosine, which has antinociceptive properties, modulating the limbic-paralimbic-neocortical network, reducing inflammation, by promoting release of vascular and immunomodulatory factors and improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility by increasing local microcirculation which aids dispersal of swelling

 “Conclusion

Current evidence identified from our review suggested that acupuncture may be effective in the relief of LEP up to a period of six months. Findings from moderate quality studies with subject-blinded and sham-controlled acupuncture intervention groups showed that acupuncture was more effective than sham acupuncture in treatment of LEP.”
