Elbow Pain Niseko
Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow and Post-Trauma Rehab
The elbow is a relatively simple and resilient hinge joint, however when it does get injured is invariably slow to heal. Elbow conditions commonly relate to neck issues and can exacerbate the pain.
Also known as lateral epicondylitis tennis elbow is a chronic condition usually caused by an imbalance between the demands placed on the elbow and its capacity. Treatment is aimed at reducing pain and tension in the muscle and improving the capacity of the elbow to handle load. We also have braces that usually provide instant relief and enable people to continue with their desired activity.
Similar to tennis elbow, but on the other side of the joint, known as medial epicondylitis. It is generally aggravated by pulling activities.
Elbow Joint Sprains
The elbow joint is encapsulated with ligaments and a joint capsule that hold it in place. If the joint is wrenched in a fall or injury it can cause tearing of the ligaments or joint capsule. These injuries can be painful and require treatment to reduce pain, protect the joint and restore normal function.
Although rare, elbow dislocations are extremely painful and must be reduced as soon as possible. If an elbow is dislocated patients should go to the nearest hospital or medical clinic to have it reduced.
