COMMON CAUSES OF ELBOW PAIN
As with all joints, a variety of conditions and injuries can affect the elbow joint, causing pain, swelling and a number of other unpleasant symptoms. Some of the most common conditions we see among our patients in Solihull and Birmingham include:
Golfer's elbow - Tendinitis
Golfer’s elbow affects the tendons that connect your forearm to the elbow. It causes pain that starts on the inside of your elbow joint and radiates down the forearm. It is often associated with pain on gripping and putting pressure on the inside of the fingers.
Tennis elbow - Tendinitis
Similar to Golfer's elbow, Tennis elbow is an overuse injury that results in pain of the tendons on the outside of the elbow along with joint pain that worsens when squeezing objects again. Although it’s quite common among tennis players, it can also affect other athletes and individuals as well.
At the back of the elbow is the olecranon bursa, which is a small, fluid-filled sac that acts as a cushion between the bone and soft tissues. When this bursa becomes irritated and inflamed, it can cause pain and swelling.
Arthritis of the elbow develops when the cartilage inside your joint starts to ware or becomes damaged. This can then cause pain and stiffness.
A sprain occurs when the ligaments that support the bones of the elbow joint stretch or tear, causing pain, swelling and bruising.
This happens when the muscles around the elbow become torn. This type of injury has a tendency to cause pain on motion.
Common among throwing athletes, this injury tends to occur gradually over time, causing pain and limited range of motion.
Painful inflamed joint reaction to increased levels of uric acid in the blood.
TREATMENT FOR YOUR ELBOW PAIN
After establishing the cause of your elbow pain, we can begin treating the underlying predisposing factors. Throughout this treatment, our aim will be to relieve your symptoms and also to prevent further joint damage by reducing inflammation and allowing for natural repair of the damages tissues. All treatments are aimed to prevent surgery. On some occasions instead we may focus exclusively on minimally-invasive regenerative ortho-biological treatments, such as platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, hyaluronic acid injections and/or cortisone or homeopathic traumeel injections.
