Elbow problems can cause pain, stiffness and reduced function in your arm. Elbow pain is common and there are many causes of elbow pain. Our Newton chiropractor provides elbow pain treatment that helps relieve pain and improve mobility of your elbow joint.
Causes of elbow pain include arthritis, sprains, bursitis, golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow. Arthritis causes breakdown of the elbow joint, while bursitis causes inflammation of the elbow joint. Sprains occur when something stretches the ligaments that connect the bones of your elbow. Golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow are types of epicondylitis, an inflammation of tendons that attach your muscles to the bones of your elbow.
Elbow problems are quite common. About 70 percent of tennis players will develop tennis elbow at some point in their lives, according to the American Chiropractic Association. And, despite its name, many more construction workers, factory workers, musicians and other people who engage in repetitive activities in their arms and hands develop tennis elbow.
Treatment for any joint problem, including elbow pain, begins with a comprehensive evaluation to determine the underlying cause of the problem. After diagnosing the source of your elbow pain, our chiropractor will recommend a course of treatment to reduce elbow pain. We may also recommend strength-building exercises to reduce your risk of re-injuring your elbow in the future.
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, non-invasive and drug free approach to elbow pain treatment. This chiropractic care may include electrical galvanic muscle stimulation, laser therapy, and moist heat therapy. Our chiropractor may recommend that you do at-home exercises and daily activities to reduce pain and improve function.
Many patients experience complete and long-lasting relief from elbow pain through chiropractic care. This type of care reduces pain, improves function and decreases the risk of further injury to the elbow. Chiropractic care fixes the cause of elbow pain and not just the symptoms.
