Two of the most common local elbow pathologies treated are medial epicondylitis or ‘golfers elbow’ and lateral epicondylitis or ‘Tennis Elbow’.

After a lifetime of playing sport, some of it serious and some not, I have picked up bumps and bangs along the way. Last year I started having problems with my knees and for my job that was a problem. Thankfully I was able to catch an appointment at Portobello Physio. After diagnosing me with hamstring tendonitis I was put on a conditioning programme that not only cleared up my knee trouble but has me way stronger so all those other bumps and bangs aren’t as bad either. I have had to go to physio a good bit over the years with my job and I can honestly say that the physio service at Portobello Clinic is one of the very best, couldn’t recommend it highly enough. A great place for sports people.
