Elbow Pain Treatment
Elbow pain is one of the most common joint pain problems in the body due to its high frequency of use in our daily and extracurricular activities (sports). Elbow pain tends to start off as a small sharp pain that only gets noticed when you use specific movements. These slight pains can grow into chronic aching joints if the problem is not addressed properly.
We often put huge amounts of strain on this joint by doing small delicate movements over a long period of time like working on the computer. Long hours of typing, using a computer mouse and driving will tighten the muscles around the elbow. Eventually this will cause inflammation in the tendons leading to elbow tendonitis. Another more common way to start having elbow pain is large fast movements in a short period of time like playing sports. Intense sporting activity causes small tears in the elbows tendons leading to a sharp painful response after years of wear and tear. Either way you receive this injury, elbow pain is often are related to the tendons surrounding the joint.

A common pain that people come to my office for is tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow. This condition will often start out small and slowly progresses to higher intensity over time and use. The pain can also come on suddenly from intense sports or injury. Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) can make normal movement like shaking hands or squeezing something painful. Once the pain starts it can worse very fast with normal activities like brushing your teeth, driving…etc. Tennis elbow most often happens for people aged 30-50 years old. This condition will often start on the outside of the elbow but if left untreated can move all the way down to the hands. Once this level has been reached, simple things like turning a key to unlock a door become frustrating and painful.
