Do you suffer from sharp pain in the elbow region? Does it arise after physical activity and later while resting? Tennis elbow may be the cause of this.
Characteristics of Tennis Elbow and its Causes
Tennis elbow is a condition of the insertions and tendons of the elbow joint. It is an entesopathy (disease of tendons), and affects 3% of the population – both men and women equally.
With tennis elbow, pain manifests itself on the outer side of the elbow, while with golf elbow, pain is felt on its inner side.
Pain can shoot up to other parts of the body (hand, arm, shoulder or even the neck) Issues arise gradually. At first, pain comes shortly after physical activity. Later, it becomes permanent. There can be swelling, redness or higher temperature locally.
The disease can lead to an incapability to grasp objects in one’s hand and a decrease in muscle strength. Wrist extensors and supinators are the ones most frequently ovestrained.
There is a whole range of tasks that cause tennis elbow although unilateral strain is common to them all; they are normally unusual or physically demanding tasks.
Among these tasks are:
- cutting wood,
- working at the computer.
Tennis Elbow Treatment – Rid yourself of the Pain
Treatment is long-term and includes both conservative and surgical care. Doctors usually recommend resting the arm and using a brace at the beginning.
In order to reduce pain, cold compression, alagesics, corticoids and local injections are used.
Physical therapy, in the form of 3D pulsed therapy, plays a significant role within the conservative treatment. Inflammatory diseases of tendons and ligaments tend to reoccur and become chronic if the affected area gets strained before the treatment process is fully finished. For this reason it is better to apply 3D pulsed therapy as a form of prevention in times of no apparent issues.
Risk fators of the chronic form in sportspeople can be influenced by decreasing the training load and by compensatory exercise. In individuals with externuating jobs, alternating between activities during a shift may help.
In cases where chronic conditions are not succesfully resolved, surgical intervention may be necessary.
3D Biomag pulsed therapy plays a significant role in treating symptoms of tennis elbow, and preventing or prolonging the time before surgical intervention.
Explanation of chosen terms:
- Entesopathy– disease of insertions and tendons arising from repeated excess strain.
- Wrist extensors – muscles that extend wrist.
- Supinators – muscles moving palm into am upward position.
Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?
The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.
The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.
Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.
What are the benefits of therapy of Tennis Elbow:
- Helps soothe pain.
- Has anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect.
- Thanks to being easy to use, it can be applied at home.
- It’s a solution with no additional medicaments.
- It’s a non-invasive treatment.

The effects of pulsed therapy - clinical studies
Effect of pulse therapy (PEMF) on reducing pain in tennis elbow is supported by many studies, like the one by a team at the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in Edirne. This study confirms a significant reduction of pain from tennis elbow when pulsed therapy is administered to them. It follows from the abovementioned that 3D Biomag pulse therapy can help reduce pain in tennis elbow. More about this scientific study.
Positive effects of pulse magnetic field (PEMF) are evidenced by clinical studies by authorities on the subject and renowned institutions. The newest list of these clinical studies can be found on this page. Contact us and we will gladly help to familiarize yourself with this expert data.
Our department uses pulse magnetic field application very well. We appreciate that not only is there an option to used numbered programmes, but also to set up our own programmes. The device is small and easy to operate with good output.
University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department
We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).

We are happy with the device. The applicators are also easy to operate, and treatment results are satisfying. Feedback from patients is positive. Average number of applications is 50 per week.

I suffered from a tennis elbow expect of something else. Thanks to the regular use of magnetotherapy I'm actively playing tennis and skiing in my 62 years.Zdeněk Fajfr, Choceň
I recommend Biomag to everyone because it helped us with the carpal tunnel pain, tennis elbow and stiff shoulder. We didn't need to consume any painkillers.Věra Kuklová
My husband and I have used the unit daily for a 1 hour. Husband very soon felt relief, no-pain - tennis elbow, he has no complaints about the cervical spine and shoulder injury doesn't hurt anymore.Manželé Fukasovi, Dvůr Králové n. Labem
