Elbow pain and injuries are very commonly seen in athletes but are not isolated to this patient population. Common elbow pain symptoms you may experience include elbow and forearm pain, difficulty gripping, stiffness of the elbow and difficulty reaching, pushing, or pulling.
A physical or occupational therapist will complete a comprehensive evaluation to determine the underlying cause of your elbow pain and create a customized program to address your needs. This examination may include screening the entire upper quarter, including your shoulder and neck. Treatment for elbow pain may include:
Tendonitis is an inflammation of a tendon and it can be caused by direct trauma, overuse, or a result of a dysfunction in another area like the shoulder or even the neck. While rest and medication may help inflammation to subside for a period, it does not address the cause of the inflammation in the first place. Booking an appointment with one of our expert physical therapists can help you get evaluated and receive a treatment plan customized to your needs.
