Elbow pain is relatively common and affects the elbow joint and the surrounding muscles. Some people think that Chiropractors only treat the spine, however, all Chiropractors at Karrinyup Wellness Centre have had extensive university-level training and education in treating extremities, including elbows, shoulders, knees, wrists, ankles, hands and feet.
The symptoms of elbow pain can vary depending on the underlying cause, but some common signs and symptoms include:
If you are experiencing persistent elbow pain, it would be a good idea to seek a Chiropractic assessment.
Elbow pain can have a variety of causes, including:
Chiropractors can be a fantastic option for treating elbow pain, as they are trained to assess the origin of the elbow’s pain and dysfunction, rather than just treating the end symptom. Sometimes the pain is due to an issue with the elbow itself, sometimes, issues elsewhere create a compensation pattern in the elbow that causes the pain, such as neck, shoulder or wrist dysfunction. Chiropractic treatment for elbow pain may include a combination of the following techniques:
There are several ways to prevent and manage elbow pain:
Avoid overuse: Avoid repetitive motions that can strain the elbow joint, such as repetitive typing, playing sports, or lifting heavy weights.
Stretch and warm up: Stretching and warming up the muscles and tendons around the elbow joint before engaging in physical activity can help prevent injury.
Use proper form: Make sure you are using proper form when engaging in physical activity, such as sports or weightlifting, to avoid putting unnecessary strain on the elbow joint.
Take breaks: Take frequent breaks if you engage in activities that involve repetitive motions, and avoid overdoing it.
Strengthen the muscles: Strengthening the muscles around the elbow joint, as well as the forearm muscles, can help reduce the risk of injury and prevent elbow pain.
Use ice or heat: Applying ice or heat to the affected area can help reduce pain and inflammation. Ask your Chiropractor for the best times to use heat vs ice.
Rest and recover: If you experience elbow pain, rest the affected arm and avoid activities that aggravate the pain until it improves.
Regular Chiropractic care can improve the alignment and function of the spine, shoulder and elbow to help maintain joint health to prevent future problems.
