What is Elbow Pain?
Elbow pain can be a debilitating condition that affects your ability to perform everyday tasks. It can stem from various sources, including overuse, injury, or underlying medical conditions. Common causes of elbow pain include:
- Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): Overuse of forearm muscles and tendons.
- Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis): Strain on the muscles and tendons on the inner side of the elbow.
- Arthritis: Inflammation of the elbow joint.
- Trauma or Injury: Fractures, dislocations, or sprains.
Symptoms of Elbow Pain
- Pain and Tenderness: Discomfort may range from a dull ache to sharp pain.
- Stiffness: Difficulty in bending or straightening the arm.
- Weakness: Reduced grip strength and difficulty carrying objects.
Our dedicated team of Doctors of Physical Therapy is committed to providing personalized care that addresses the root causes of your elbow pain. We focus on empowering our patients through knowledge and hands-on therapies.
Personalized Exercise Programs
Your journey to a pain-free life begins with a personalized exercise program tailored to your specific needs. Our team takes the time to explain each exercise, ensuring you understand the biomechanics involved and the benefits to your elbow health.
Hands-on techniques play a crucial role in alleviating elbow pain. Our therapists utilize manual therapy to release tension, improve joint mobility, and enhance overall function.
Understanding the biomechanics of your elbow is key to effective treatment. We conduct thorough biomechanical analyses to identify any imbalances or abnormalities contributing to your pain, allowing us to create a targeted plan for your recovery.
We believe informed patients are empowered patients. Throughout your treatment, we’ll educate you about the anatomy of the elbow, the physiology of your condition, and the rationale behind each therapeutic intervention. This knowledge equips you to actively participate in your healing journey.
