Common causes for elbow pain
There are many reasons why you may be experiencing pain in your elbow.
The following are some of the most common causes of elbow pain:
MoveMend Rehab and Performance will treat your carpal tunnel syndrome without surgery in a safe and comfortable manner.
Tendinitis is referred to as an “overuse injury” because it occurs gradually over time. This condition occurs when tendons become inflamed, resulting in swelling and pain, particularly when the affected area is moved.
Medial (inside) epicondylitis, also known as “golfer’s elbow,” is an inflammation of the tendons surrounding the elbow. Tennis elbow is similar, but the pain is on the inside of the elbow. This injury is caused by the overuse of the muscles that flex your wrist and fingers.
There’s a good chance you’ll notice if one of the nerves that run through your elbow is injured! You might feel numbness, tingling, or a loss of temperature.
In cases of severe nerve injury, muscle function is disrupted, and paralysis can occur. Furthermore, nerve injuries are usually the result of overuse and are accompanied by edema. Swelling reduces the nerve’s ability to function properly by obstructing proper circulation.
Tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendons surrounding the elbow caused by lateral (outside) epicondylitis. It happens when you do repetitive tasks that require you to grip and extend your wrist. A few examples include holding a tennis racket, a paintbrush, or a hammer. Tenderness around the outside of your elbow will be severe, causing pain when gripping, lifting, or twisting your forearm.
Elbow fractures (Olecranon)
Falls commonly cause upper extremity fractures. This is due to the fact that the natural reaction is to try to catch yourself. The fingers, wrist, and elbow may become extremely stiff during the healing process. This can result in a decrease in strength and range of motion.
Elbow Sprain / Strain
Sprains and strains in the elbow are common. An unexpected overstretching of the tissues can cause sprains and strains. Overstretching can cause a tear, resulting in swelling, pain, and difficulty moving.
The list above may help you identify the source of your pain. It’s also possible that you have a completely different experience!
In any case, make an appointment with MoveMend Rehab and Performance. Our physical therapists can identify the source of your pain and recommend treatment options.
