Tennis and Golfer's elbow are classic repetitive strain injuries. The technical names are lateral epicondylitis and medial epicondylitis, respectively. Tennis elbow affects the muscles and tendons on the back outside area of the elbow, which lifts the wrist and extends the fingers. Golfer's elbow affects the tendons on the front inside of the arm, which flexes the wrist and closes the fingers. While these issues occur in sports, they are also frequently seen in the workplace and associated with large amounts of computer use. These injuries tend to linger, and it is common for it to take 3-6 months to recover.
Treatment for these conditions will generally involve managing the symptoms and exercise therapy. Managing symptoms may include doing things directly to the elbow, like icing, for example, and indirectly, like making changes to your work setup. Exercise therapy generally involves a combination of both strengthening and stretching exercises to help build up your tendons. Most importantly, though, in the treatment process, we want to teach you the skills to confidently manage this condition yourself in case it ever pops up again in the future.
Nick was so attentive to my needs and he structured his schedule to fit mine. My therapy was focused on my strengths and weaknesses; therefore, my recovery time was much shorter than expected. I highly recommend Nevada Physical Therapy for any lingering pain you may be experiencing.Read More Reviews

I was referred to Brian Fearnley by someone with significant credibility. I consider working with Brian a huge stroke of luck. This specific 'PT' is increasing my recovery potential a hundred fold. Brian knows his stuff. He is well versed in PT. He has athletic history at UNR and is active in our local community. He is clearly in this profession to help people recover and get under their own power.Read More Reviews
