Elbow Conditions We Treat

The pain can be a sudden onset or can start as a slow nagging pain. Some common reasons for elbow discomfort are:

 

Partial tendon tear

A partial tear only penetrates the tendon partially. Describe how deep the tendon tear is, rather than length, width, or other dimensions.

Tendinosis

Tendinosis is a degeneration of the collagen in the tendon due to chronic overuse. These can also occur when overusing the tendon without healing and rest, as with repetitive.

Strain Injury

A muscle or tissue that connects muscle to bone, stretches, or tears (tendon). Lower back and back of thigh muscle strains are common. Pain, swelling, muscle spasms, and a restriction in the muscle's movement capacity are all symptoms.

Tenosynovitis

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon. Any tendon in the elbow can be affected. Inflammation of a tendon can result in swelling, pain, and discomfort.

Radial Head Subluxation

The radius, one of two long bones in the lower arm, has pushed away from its natural position, resulting in radial head subluxation. The radial bone's supporting ligament then glides into the elbow joint. When this happens, the radial bone is unable to return to its usual position.

Nerve Entrapments

Entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow can occur when the nerves are stretched too far. Keeping the elbow bent fully, or when the nerves are directly compressed by pressing the elbow against a solid surface.

Whatever the reason, it is essential to get it checked out. These conditions have different treatment approaches to alleviate the pain and get you back to functioning at absolute capacity.

 

Common Sports-Related Elbow Pain

One of the more common reasons for pain in elbows comes from overuse or repetitive motion. This can be from an activity such as playing tennis or golf, or in many cases from the use of electronics such as the mouse of your computer, keyboard, or cell phone use.a man having pain in the elbow due to sports

Though the intensity of the movements needed to type and do basic desk work is very low, the repetition for hours and days on end can be sufficient to cause damage to the tissue. The vast number of muscles and ligaments that attach to this joint coupled with the lack of rest with the necessity of these tissues to perform basic human function will sometimes cause parts of this joint to become irritated or inflamed.

Dry needling, also known as trigger point injections, involves the insertion of a series of small needles into your skin to relieve, and locate sharp pain in elbow when putting pressure on it.

McKenzie Treatment Exercises

These exercises can help with a variety of ailments. Elbow pain exercises strengthen the biceps muscles located in the front of your upper arm. as well as strengthening muscles around the radius and ulna bones of your forearm. Every joint in the spine and the upper and lower extremities can benefit from McKenzie treatment exercises.

Active Release Technique

Soft tissue manipulation is a term that we utilize to describe a very hands-on approach, similar to massage, to increase mobility and decrease the tension of specific muscles in the elbow that is contributing to the condition.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a proven, safe, and effective therapy for elbow pain that promotes healing and restores strength without surgery or medication. Chiropractic aims not only to relieve the pain itself but to address the structural components such as the muscles and skeleton. Both of which contribute to the condition being there in the first place.
