Stoßwellentherapie bei Tennisellenbogen

Literaturüberblick
Leitthema

Zusammenfassung

Um die Effektivität der extrakorporalen Stoßwellentherapie (ESWT) bei Tennisellenbogen zu untersuchen, wurde eine Analyse von kontrollierten randomisierten Studien durchgeführt. Fünf Untersuchungen wiesen eine befriedigende Methodik auf, 4 Studien zeigten ein qualitativ hochwertiges Design. Kontrollierte randomisierte Studien mit gutem Studiendesign konnten einen positiven Effekt der Stoßwellentherapie bei Tennisellenbogen zeigen.

Shock wave treatment for tennis elbow

Abstract

Randomized controlled trials were evaluated to assess the effectiveness of extracorporeal shock wave treatment in the management of tennis elbow. Five trials had a mediocre methodology and four trials had a high-quality design. Well-designed randomized control trials have provided evidence of the effectiveness of shock wave intervention for tennis elbow.
