ELBOW
PAIN

Many sports, hobbies and jobs require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements which can cause overuse in the elbow. Elbow pain can be a nuisance, since you tend to be using your hands constantly, for work or for play. Our physiotherapists understand that and will assess the symptoms accordingly, ensuring that your elbow will not stand in the way of you working and playing.

 

Elbow pain usually comes from strained or inflamed soft tissues such as tendons. Other causes of elbow pain include fractures from falling onto an outstretched arm; arthritis; sprains, which stretch or tear elbow ligaments; and bursitis, inflammation of the fluid-filled joint cushions called bursae.

Some of the symptoms includes:

  • Pain over or near the elbow

  • Pain when making a fist

  • Pain when opening the fingers

  • Weak grip 

  • Pain when moving your wrist in certain directions

  • Disc Injury
    A disc works almost like a shock absorber, but over time they can become worn or damaged. Symptoms of a disc-related injury might include a loss of mobility in the neck, numbness into your shoulder or arm, and weakness in your neck.
  • Stiff Neck
    Difficulty moving the neck sideway without turning the entire body. It may also be accompanied by a headache, neck pain and shoulder pain or arm pain. In most cases, pain and stiffness go away naturally within a week.
  • Whiplash
    Whiplash injury occurs when there is a sudden jolt to the head and neck in any accident that may cause a forceful back-and-forth motion. Motor vehicle accident is the most common cause behind the whiplash injury, but can also happen in sports or other trauma.
