This chapter includes two treatment routines. The first one is very effective in treating the well-known common pathology, “Tennis elbow.” The other routine is used to treat several different non specific elbow pathologies involving stiffness and pain. Choose one routine out of the two according to signs relevant to the Thai diagnosis (see diagnosis table), regardless of the western medical definition of the condition. Whenever the symptoms present in your client match the symptoms described by one of the Thai routines, try using it and observe your client’s reaction. If your pressure is welcome by his body, your treatment may give good results. If you notice any improvement, carry on.
