Elbow Pain

glowing red elbow painElbow pain is a prevalent issue addressed at our office, with one of the most common conditions being lateral epicondylitis, commonly referred to as tennis elbow. This discomfort typically manifests on the outer side of the elbow, often extending towards the wrist. The condition is frequently linked to activities involving repetitive elbow use, especially those that require unfamiliar or infrequently performed movements.

Treatment Approaches

Our approach to addressing elbow pain involves employing effective treatments to alleviate discomfort and promote recovery. The primary modalities include:

1. Muscle Release Techniques

Muscle release techniques are utilized to address the specific muscle groups affected by elbow pain. These techniques aim to release tension and improve the overall flexibility of the muscles involved.

2. Acupuncture

Acupuncture, a traditional therapeutic method, is employed to target specific points associated with elbow pain. This technique aims to stimulate natural healing processes and alleviate pain.

Recovery Duration and Expectations

Elbow pain conditions may require a longer recovery period compared to neck and back pain. However, the majority of cases respond positively to the implemented treatments, offering relief and improved functionality.

Examples of Triggering Activities

Elbow pain often arises after engaging in activities that involve repetitive elbow movements. Examples of such activities include:

  • Prolonged painting sessions
  • Repetitive use of a screwdriver

While elbow pain may present challenges, our comprehensive treatment approach, incorporating muscle release techniques and acupuncture, is designed to address the root causes and promote healing. We strive to ensure that individuals experiencing elbow pain receive effective care and regain optimal function.
