Elbow Pain

Repetitive motion sports like golf, baseball, tennis and weightlifting can cause elbow pain, which can sideline you from your favorite sport. Elbow injuries can cause various problems and even brachial neuralgia. Damage to the brachial plexus can cause serious arm and hand pain and even motor dysfunction.

Types of Elbow Pain

Here are some of the most common forms of elbow pain that we see at Brown Chiropractic Center.

This malady is a form of tendonitis where inflammation occurs in the tendons that connect the forearm to the elbow. Unlike tennis elbow, which occurs in tendons on the outside of the elbow, golfer’s elbow occurs in tendons on the inside and is less common.

Tennis elbow occurs in both the tendons and muscles in the forearm extending down to the wrist and fingers. This type of elbow pain isn’t always tied to playing too much tennis, but rather stems from overusing the muscles, ligaments and tendons.

Elbow pain is more common for those suffering from rheumatoid or osteo arthritis. When arthritis extends to the elbow, the following can be experienced: pain, swelling and redness, limited range of motion and difficulty straightening the elbow.

Elbow sprains and strains are fairly common occurrences that can happen in everyday life. These issues can lead to pain, inflammation, swelling, bruising and restricted motion of the elbow. Here are some ways these elbow sprains and strains can occur:

  • Using your arm to break a fall
  • Lifting weights
  • Hitting your elbow hard on something
  • Making repetitive motions

How We Can Help

At the Brown Chiropractic Center therapy facility, we help treat various injuries that can cause elbow pain. If the joint is not functioning properly often we can help correct that by making sure the bones of the elbow (radius, ulna and humerus) are articulating properly. In addition to our various chiropractic techniques, we can use laser therapy to treat your elbow pain.
