This condition is fairly common among tennis players, especially professionals. Incorrect movements are often the key factor in the formation of the injury. Needless to say, “tennis elbow” does not just affect tennis players. The condition can also be caused by other sports, for example golf or swimming and is a typical professional complaint among bricklayers and hairdressers.

Causes of inflammation

This injury is always caused by a continuous excessive strain of the forearm. Improper treatment can cause a progressive deterioration of the patient’s condition.


Sharp pain is felt on the outer side of the elbow. The pain may also spread along the muscle in the direction of the forearm and wrist and may also be felt when twisting the wrist (i.e., movement of the hand towards the dorsal side of the forearm).

How to cure a joint

Microvibrational therapy or fonotherapy (treatment with micro-vibrations) focuses on improving the ability of the musculoskeletal system to cushion the load (outside impact), removing dead cells from the affected area, improving the circulation and secretion of synovial fluid. Micro-vibrations generated by Fonovit penetrate the joint in a natural way and are very effective in treating “tennis elbow”.*

The user manual for the device divides the treatment into three stages. However, in practise it has turned out that the stages can be combined by extending the treatment time. Always consult the user manual  for contraindications. Important! It is necessary to reduce the stress on the joint!
