Tennis elbow

September 4, 2018

Hi there

I just wanted to ask your opinion, so I went to visit a sports physiotherapist, he tells me the issue, connects me up with 4 suction cups to a large tens unit for 15 minutes, goes off to the next room to see his other patient, comes back in when finished, does 5 minutes of electro therapy and that’s it £35 cash, tells me it will take 6 sessions or more see you next week.

Does this sound right? No hands on or anything like that?

I mean I can buy a tens machine myself to stimulate blood flow? I don’t know just didn’t seem right to me.

Oh dear.

That’s all so wrong….

Your Physio is doing you (and me!) a huge disservice.

Find someone better, ask what’s the cause and what rehab do you need to be shown to help yourself….
