Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow
Lateral and Medial Epicondylitis or Epicondylar Tendinopathy is commonly referred to as Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow. This condition causes pain and tenderness on the outside (tennis elbow) or inside of the elbow (golfers elbow). You may also experience pain in your forearm and in the back of your hand. Symptoms may range from a mild discomfort to severe pain that can be felt even when your joint is not active. It is thought this condition gained the colloquial name Tennis or Golfers elbow as the elbow joint is overused in these sports. However, most patients that present with tennis elbow or golfers elbow are either manual workers or those that suffer from repetitive strain from working on keyboards.
We offer a convenient one stop clinic and competitive fixed price diagnostics package to identify the issue and recommend prompt treatment. A significant amount of patients are misdiagnosed with tennis elbow and therefore an accurate diagnosis allows for a precise tailor-made management plan.

After your consultation we will offer packages of treatment which will range from physiotherapy courses to a combination of physiotherapy and other regenerative treatments.
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP
Platelet rich plasma or PRP is an innovative new treatment in sports and orthopaedic medicine and uses your own blood for healing muscle, tendon and ligament injuries. A small amount of your blood is placed in a filtration system, which separates your red blood cells from plasma and platelets. This plasma contains high concentration of your own body growth fractures which are injected into your injured tissue and initiates your body’s natural healing response. Your procedure will be carried out at our Harley Street out-patient department.
This treatment is widely researched and supported in clinical papers – see our evidence section to find out more.
