Elbow injuries are the biggest contributor to elbow pain and inflammation. Since our elbows consist of bone, ligaments, and cartilage, it's important that all of these parts are healthy and functioning properly. If not treated by our professionals, your injury could turn into an even larger issue and become more painful. We utilize the latest techniques to bring you long term pain relief of your elbow injuries.
Types of Elbow Injuries
- Golfer's Elbow: Medical epicondylitis, commonly referred to as golfer's elbow, is a condition that's caused by overusing your forearm muscles to grip, rotate, and flex. This tears the tendons on the inside of your elbow, which causes inflammation and pain. We treat golfer's elbow using the latest chiropractic techniques.
- Tennis Elbow: Pain from tennis elbow is focused on the outside of your elbow and arm. Despite its name, many people who develop tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, do not actually play tennis. It's caused by using your arm in a repetitive motion from activities like gardening, painting, carpentry, assembly line work, and more.
- Acute Injuries: These injuries occur suddenly from trauma, such as a fall or getting hit in a sport. Bruising, swelling, and pain may occur following an acute elbow injury. Whether it's a sprain, strain, or other injury, we are happy to work with your primary doctor to provide the most effective treatment plans.
How Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Helps Elbow Injuries
Following a neuromuscular examination or x-ray to determine the source of your pain and inflammation, Dr. Jamnik will go over different treatment options with you for your elbow injury. Corrective exercises help with the dysfunction of your elbow by improving its range of motion. Kinesio taping offers support and stability to the weak elbow joint. This helps the tissues heal quicker, which means less pain for you. Our highly qualified and experienced massage therapists provide therapeutic massage to reduce inflammation and tension in your elbow.
