How To Treat Elbow Pain
Most elbow pain results from overuse injuries. Many sports, hobbies and work-place activities require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements. Medial epicondylitis, also known as golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow, is characterized by pain from the elbow to the wrist on the palm side of the forearm. The pain is caused by damage to the tendons that bend the wrist toward the palm. Pain in the elbow can also accompany conditions such as osteoarthritis, bursitis, ligament strains and tears.
How Cahill Physical Therapy Can Help You
Once the cause of the elbow pain has been identified, your physical therapist will design a program of pain relief and restorative exercise.
If elbow pain is a result of repetitive motion activities, a strategy is put in place to prevent further injury. Elbow pain treatment at Cahill Physical Therapy can include:
- Kinesio taping
- Sports specific training
- Heat treatments
