“I developed tennis elbow after a particularly vigorous and unaccustomed game of tennis doubles. Rest, anti inflammatory gel and physiotherapy didn’t cure it. I couldn’t bring myself to have the painful injection.
Two years later I was still in significant pain -work was painful and recreation (tennis, windsurfing and kite surfing) was also inhibited. I had 3 shock wave treatments. Although uncomfortable at the time – the pain was reduced by about 50% immediately the treatment stopped (I believe the nerves get numbed). After 3 months to my delight I noticed all the tenderness and pain had gone and I have never looked back.”
