Understanding and Managing Elbow Pain

Elbow pain can significantly disrupt daily activities and diminish overall quality of life.

In this section, we delve into the multifaceted aspects of elbow pain, including its causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options, to equip you with the knowledge needed to address your discomfort effectively.

Understanding the root cause of your elbow pain is pivotal for formulating an appropriate treatment plan.

Symptoms

Understanding Elbow Pain Causes and Chiropractic Solutions

Elbow pain can arise from various factors, including injuries, overuse, and underlying medical conditions. Here, we delve into the common causes of elbow pain and discuss how chiropractic care can provide effective solutions:

Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): Tennis elbow is a common cause of elbow pain, characterized by inflammation of the tendons on the outside of the elbow.

Golfer's Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis): Golfer's elbow is another form of tendinitis that affects the tendons on the inside of the elbow.

Overuse Injuries: Overuse injuries, such as tendinitis or bursitis, can occur when the tendons or bursae in the elbow joint become inflamed or irritated due to repetitive stress or strain.

Joint Dysfunction: Dysfunction in the elbow joint, such as joint misalignments or restrictions, can lead to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.

Nerve Compression: Nerve compression, such as ulnar nerve entrapment or radial nerve compression, can cause symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the elbow and surrounding areas.

Have been visiting Jason at Westside Sports Chiropractic for several months now and am really impressed with his thorough assessment and treatment. He takes the time to understand the root cause and focuses on correcting that, not just a short term fix. I've seen a lot of improvement in my condition so far. Would highly recommend.

Travelling Soldier

Jason is a wholistic health professional. Saw him for a long standing shoulder pain. Clear ultrasounds and x-rays. He accurately diagnosed the underlying cause and offered rapid yet sustainable relief in just one session. Now looking at rehab with him in the on-site gym and continue to strength and conditioning long term. Glad I called in !

Oscar Marulanda

I’ve been in treatment with Jason for over a year. I went with a back injury and Jason basically “fixed” me. Along the way, he has provided guidance and advice about how to improve my back.Recently, I have sessions with Joey. His skills and experience are aligned with Jason’s which made you feel comfortable that either one of them is equally doing the best for you.I’ve recommended Jason to my mum, brother and brother-in-law. They all agree that Jason has miracle hands.
