On this page, our Physiotherapists at Pure have worked collaboratively to compile a series of exercise rehabilitation plans which we recommend performing at home for help with your recovery.
The exercises are categorised in to different stages based on the current symptoms you are experiencing and the level of progress you have made in your recovery and rehabilitation journey.
The early exercise programme is designed to maintain soft tissue flexibility in the wrist and forearm with passive stretching. An exercise is also included to prevent weakening of the wrist extensor muscles which may also provide some symptom relief. Moving to the intermediate plan, the focus changes to strengthening of the wrist muscles and tendons with resistance. A movement for the neck is also included as this may help improve symptoms. Finally, the advanced programme is significantly more challenging with the aim of improving wrist and forearm strength to build resilience in the area using functional actions.
The key aspect of managing Tennis Elbow is effective activity modification to control symptom irritation, whilst also applying an optimal load through the affected tendon complex to stimulate healing and build resilience. Click here for more information on this condition.

Ensure you pay attention to the specific level of the exercises you have been prescribed (early, intermediate or advanced) and view only those videos so that you perform the correct exercises.
Although these exercises are recommended by us, we advise that you liaise with your Physiotherapist before attempting any exercises you have not been recommended.
If you experience continual worsening of pain/symptoms whilst performing any prescribed exercises, we recommended that you stop and contact your Physiotherapist.
