What Causes Elbow Pain?
Elbow pain is a result of overuse. Excessive use can wear out the joints and make you more prone to injuries.
If you feel intense elbow pain, chances are your joint’s are inflamed.
Tennis elbow is a condition by which the tendons in your elbow are overloaded, due to repetitive motions of the wrist and the arm.
Golfer’s elbow is a condition by which pain is felt where the tendons in your arm link to the bony bump of your elbow.
Apart from these, it might just be that you have sprained your elbow by hyperextending it.
Symptoms of Elbow Pain
Symptoms of elbow pain vary depending on the severity of the condition you may have and these can include:
Soreness Around Elbow Bump
How can Chiropractic help?
Diagnose the right condition for a personalised treatment
Our chiropractors will assess the cause and severity of your condition with a physical assessment during the consultation. In addition to the physical exam, we'll look into your past medical history and any recent X-ray results available to pinpoint the cause of the pain. Determining the source of the pain is essential to recommend the right method of treatment and rehabilitation. Treatment will be customised to your condition and these options can include:
To improve joint function and alleviate the stress on your elbow.
Electrotherapy (TENS machine)
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy involves the use of low-voltage electric currents to treat pain.
Trigger Point Release
Reduces pain by reliving tightness and stress around elbow joints.
Active Release Techniques
Non-invasive manual therapy techniques that work to correct soft tissue restrictions that cause pain and mobility issues.
Physical therapy targeted at releasing points of damage and injury.
Providing long-term care as your healthcare partner
Whole-Body Treatment Approach
Our chiropractors adopt a whole-body treatment approach to evaluate your pain areas as a whole because other regions of the neck (cervical), mid back (thoracic) and low back (lumbar) may be affected as well. We aim to treat the “whole person,” not just to treat your specific symptoms.
Advice on Posture, Exercises, Diet and Nutrition
In order to treat the root of chronic pains that are recurring over time, our chiropractors seek to understand your lifestyle and work demands so as to provide personalised patient-centric care and advice over a longer time horizon as your healthcare partner.
