Seeing a Chiropractor Midtown for Elbow Pain
The elbow joint is among the most common to suffer injuries, including dislocations and fractures. These are especially common in children, who have the underdeveloped joint tested in many instances, through activities like swinging by the arms and similar tumbling and sports. The elbow actually connects three bones together, including the upper arm bone (the humerus) and two bones that are in the forearm, the ulna and radius.
How Elbow Dislocations and Fractures Happen
While elbow injuries frequently are caused by a sprained ligament or strained muscle, elbow pain is also experienced because of a fractured or dislocated elbow. Dislocations and fractures need to be reset, leaving many to call a chiropractor in Midtown West. They can happen thought every day life accidents, such as
- trying to catch yourself during a fall,
- be a part of a sports injury (repetitive motion injuries can result in hairline fractures, as well as sprains and strains)
- or can be a result of the components of the joint becoming dislocated from one another from excessive pulling or stretching
When an elbow is broken or dislocated it is important to seek out care from your physician or Rockefeller Center chiropractic care right away so that the bone or joint can be properly reset, and instructions can be given to limit further damage and relieve pain.
