The answer is an overwhelming YES! Medial and lateral epicondylitis (to the lay person - golfer's and tennis elbow) is the result of repetitive micro traumas to the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the elbow and forearm. These micro traumas cause the body to lay down scar tissue that hinders motion in the muscles and the joints of the arm. The best treatment for these injuries is restoring proper movement in the injured muscle and the elbow joint so the arm can perform its normal activities. Soft tissue manipulation and joint mobilization has been shown to reduce the pain associate with these injuries and restore normal range of motion so patients can return the playing the sports that they love!
