Elbow Pain

Ways to Beat Elbow Pain

Causes of Elbow Pain?

Arthritis is an incredibly debilitating disease causing pain, inflammation, stiffness, and limitation of movement. As the most common cause of chronic disability, it can often keep you from performing daily activities and fully enjoying your life.

However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! There is no reason you shouldn’t be able to do all of the activities that you love to do – being active, playing a sport, lifting your children or your grandchildren, or simply sitting at the computer and updating your Facebook status.

Elbow Pain Treatments

One physical therapy technique proven successful in treating tennis elbow by relieving pain and restoring function is called Graston Technique. The non-invasive mobilization technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to help the clinician identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. It involves treating the whole affected arm in a way that increases circulation and stimulates healing and realignment of the scar tissue over the elbow.

Our physical therapists will also spend time educating you about the condition and how to reduce elbow inflammation and pain. Proper movement technique, rest and ice are early treatment options. To further the healing process, a therapist will work with you to stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons surrounding the injured elbow.
