Treatment of elbow pathologies: chronic tendinitis and flessum
Elbow joint physiology
The elbow is a complex joint between the upper arm (humerus) and the forearm (radius and ulna, formerly ulna) and is made up of 3 joints: the humero-ulnar, humero-radial and proximal (superior) radio-ulnar. This joint complex allows flexion and extension movements of the forearm on the arm, as well as pronosupination movements (rotation of the ulna around the radius), which are essential for daily life tasks.
The Allyane method will thus be useful in the rehabilitative management of most of the pathologies affecting this joint, particularly in the case of trauma leading to long immobilisation.
Generally speaking, we find elbow pathologies such as  elbow dislocation and damage (or rupture) of the external or internal lateral ligaments, hygroma (or bursitis), recurrent tendonitis such as epicondylitis (or "tennis elbow"), fractures of the radial head, olecranon or epicondyle, tendon ruptures (of the biceps, for example), and algodystrophy (generally secondary to a trauma).
It is important to note that tendinopathies in the elbow region are often secondary to compensations or joint stiffness.
Support in the rehabilitation of these disorders will be provided at different stages of the patient's functional rehabilitation.
Causes of elbow pathologies
The origin of elbow pathologies is most often traumatic (accidents, falls) or degenerative (wear and tear). Mobility disorders of the elbow are the expression of hypersollicitation on the joints, for example "tennis elbow". Force, repetition of movements and poor posture are the constraints that can be found in sports or work.
These phenomena will tend to cause tendinopathy, or stiffening of the elbow joint.
Management of elbow pathologies with the Allyane method
Regain the mobility of your elbow thanks to the Allyane muscular reprogramming treatment: the Allyane method will contribute to limiting the loss of articular amplitude, in particular on phenomena such as elbow flexion (consequence of articular stiffening), as well as the loss of strength in general of the upper limb, which follows the more or less long immobilization of this joint if it is traumatized
The specific Allyane sessions are integrated into the current rehabilitation programme, or long afterwards, if the functional disturbances are chronic and persist.
Finally, it is possible to carry out sessions to accelerate the rehabilitation process and the "return to play" in the case of sportsmen and women, for example.
It is important to note that the study of each patient's case is based on a precise anamnesis and the analysis of the motor patterns in their entirety; it is therefore not limited to the elbow region alone.

Advice from David Touré, osteopath and certified Allyane practitioner
In practice, the therapeutic solutions chosen by your therapist will be the following:
- Heat: causes vasodilation and promotes tendon healing, but can also be pro-inflammatory and increase pain!
- Massages: essential and appropriate for the preliminary stage of rehabilitation.
- Physiotherapy: electrical stimulation, cryotherapy, etc.
- Balneotherapy: analgesic effect due to the greatly reduced weightlessness.
It will also be possible to carry out active and passive mobilisation exercises on your own, but always in agreement with your therapist or surgeon, and according to the evolution of your rehabilitation treatment.

The Allyane method
Addressed motor difficulties
Find below the other pathologies treated by the Allyane method.
The Allyane method can also be used to treat shoulder disorders, including the after-effects of capsulitis, shoulder instability (which can occur following a dislocation or subluxation), as well as disorders related to postoperative effects (amplitude deficit, etc.).
traumatic knee pathologies, such as recurrence of sprains, cruciate ligaments
knee prostheses, patellofemoral syndrome or knee flessum.
The Allyane method can also be used to rehabilitate certain
neurological conditions, in particular those that may arise following a stroke (Parkinson's), multiple sclerosis, incomplete spinal cord injury,
or in the context of spasticity regulation.
Defects in active mobility (flexion/extension), stability (insufficiency of the gluteus medius) or lameness induced by a hip prosthesis can be effectively corrected by the Allyane rehabilitation method.
Pathologies of the trunk and spine
Certain pathologies of the trunk and spine such as kyphosis, scoliosis, sciatica and lumbago can be treated with our neuromotor reprogramming method.
Wrist and hand motor skills
functional rehabilitation in connection with certain ankle pathologies, in particular: recurrence of sprains, muscular disorders (insufficient lifters), motor inhibitions after immobilisation and post-operative effects.
