Elbow Pain

Our PAT treats the following elbow pain conditions.
Any change in the structure of the bones from a break can put abnormal stress on the elbow which can cause pain.  
Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa at the elbow causing pain and swelling.  
Osteoarthritis is a fairly uncommon condition at the elbow but if present, results in pain, swelling and inflammation of the elbow.  
Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition attacks the joint and can result in abnormal joint surfaces leading to pain.  
Any of the muscles or ligaments surrounding the elbow may become inflamed from overuse or trauma, causing sprains or strains.  
Tendinitis is an inflammation of one of the tendons at the elbow joint from overuse.

Tennis Elbow – this is lateral epicondylitis, but most people call it tennis elbow since it is a common injury for tennis players. It is pain focused on the outside of the arm, where your forearm meets your elbow. Although the term widely used, only a small group of people diagnosed with tennis elbow actually get it from playing tennis.It will usually heal with treatment such as PAT, but you have to give it time and rest. When you constantly use your arm in a repetitive motion, the tendons at the elbow end of a certain muscle may develop small tears. The tears lead to inflammation and may put stress on the rest of your arm, making it painful to lift and grip things. Left untreated, it can become chronic.

Golfers Elbow – Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis) causes pain and inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm to the elbow. The pain centers on the bony bump on the inside of your elbow and may radiate into the forearm. It can usually be treated effectively with rest and the PAT treatment Golfer’s elbow is usually caused by overusing the muscles in the forearm that allow you to grip, rotate your arm, and flex your wrist. Repetitive flexing, gripping, or swinging can cause pulls or tiny tears in the tendons.

Throwing Injuries – baseball pitchers and football quarterbacks are often plagued by throwing injuries which could involve bursitis, tendinitis or muscle or ligament tear.

Trapped Nerves – inflammation and swelling at the elbow can lead to entrapment of nerves in the elbow such as cubital tunnel symdrome. Cubital tunnel syndrome is also known as ulnar neuropathy. It is caused by increased pressure on the ulnar nerve, which passes through the elbow joint near the surface at the area of the elbow commonly known as the “funny bone.” You’re more likely to develop cubital tunnel syndrome if you:
•  Have a habit of leaning on your elbow, especially on a hard surface like a desk
•  Keep your elbow bent for sustained periods. This can happen while talking on a cell phone or sleeping with your elbow bent under your pillow
•  The common cause of this nerve compression syndromes is increased pressure — usually from bone or connective tissue — on a nerve in the wrist, arm, or elbow. In most cases, cubital tunnel syndrome can be managed with conservative treatments. But more severe cases may require surgery to reduce pressure on the ular nerve.
