Of every 1000 people who visit the GP in a year, seven of them have a tennis elbow (in medical terms, ‘lateral epicondylitis’). The average recovery time of the complaint lies between six months and two years (with 90%, the condition is cured after 1 year), and with many people the condition regularly disrupts their work activities. The tennis elbow is just as common with men as with women and most often occurs in the dominant arm. The complaint is most common between the age of 30 to 50.
It is safe to say that the tennis elbow is a very common problem that has a big impact. To offer the best possible treatment, Medical Centre Jan van Goyen has joined the forces of physiotherapy and orthopaedics.
The best treatment begins with the best start. A proper treatment of the tennis elbow starts with a diagnosis that is made by the orthopaedic surgeon who has established his expertise in the diagnosing and treatment of elbow conditions. When the diagnosis is clear, the specialist, in consultation with you and the physiotherapist, will determine the best suitable treatment. Good elbow treatments require a concrete, evaluative treatment trajectory in which we will mutually determine the treatment goals and appointments.
Good elbow care requires a good diagnosis and a concrete evaluative treatment process in which the treatment goals and treatment agreements are determined together with you. We have an extensive network of professionals who deal with elbow complaints.
