Elbow Pain

Golfers Elbow Treatment

Golfer’s elbow, also known as Medial Epicondylitis, is characterized by pain from the elbow to the wrist on the inner side of the elbow. Repetitive forces can cause the tendons that attach to the bone on the medial side of the elbow to become tender and irritated. Common symptoms include pain and tenderness on the inner side of the elbow, elbow stiffness, and weakness in the hand or forearm when attempting to grip objects. This can lead to pain associated with activities. Complications from medial epicondylitis are uncommon. If a person stops performing the activity that has caused the condition or performs it less often, they will usually recover. Your physical or occupational therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan to identify the cause of the issue and construct a plan of care to resume you to your prior level of function or better.

Tennis Elbow Treatment

Tennis elbow, also known as Lateral Epicondylitis, is a painful condition involving the tendons that attach to the bone on the lateral side of the elbow. It occurs as a result of overuse of the wrist extensor muscles or repetitive motions of the forearm such as flexion, extension, pronation, and supination. Common symptoms include pain and tenderness at the lateral aspect of the elbow, decreased ability to grasp, decreased ability to extend the wrist, and decreased strength in the forearm, wrist, and hand. This can lead to pain associated with activities in which this muscle is active, such as lifting, gripping and/or grasping. Your physical or occupational therapist will work with you to develop a treatment plan to identify the cause of the issue and construct a plan of care to resume you to your prior level of function or better.
