Elbow Pain Treatment From Your Midtown New York Chiropractor

Like your knee, your elbow is a complex joint comprised of three major bones encased by a shared joint capsule. The humerus, radius and ulna bones form the humeroulnar joint (allows extension and flexion movements), humeroradial joint (ball and socket joint allowing directional movement) and the superior radioulnar joint, necessary for supination and pronation movements. Supporting the elbow joint capsule are muscles, tendons and ligaments necessary for holding the joint together and facilitating ease of movement. When components of the elbow suffer injury, disease or temporary strains/sprains, chronic elbow pain often emerges requiring professional treatment provided by your New York chiropractors. Some causes of Elbow Pain include:

Elbow Pain

Dislocations and Fractures

Falls, vehicle accidents and playing contact sports are frequent reasons for elbow dislocations or fractures. A dislocation means a traumatic separation affects the joint where multiple bones meet. Elbow dislocations do not injure bones but do cause damage to muscles, tendons, nerves and ligaments. Signs of a dislocation or fracture include significant pain, bruising, swelling and inability to move the elbow. Your Midtown chiropractors treat and rehabilitate dislocations and fractures

Elbow Sprains and Strains

Applying strong force to your elbow may partially tear ligaments meant to hold bones together, causing you to sprain your elbow. When tendons or muscles responsible for allowing movement of your elbow are torn, your chiropractor near Rockefeller Center may diagnose you with a strained elbow. Like elbow dislocations and fractures, elbow strains/sprains produce swelling, bruising and severe pain.

Elbow Bursitis

Acting as fluid-filled, protective cushions that reduce friction among tendons and muscles during movement, bursae can become inflamed when irritated by repetitive motions, injury and overuse. Chronic pain, swelling and reduced elbow flexibility are signs of elbow bursitis. X-rays may be recommended if chiropractors suspect bone spurs are contributing to elbow pain.

Osteoarthritis

When your elbow joint suffers excessive wear and tear, deterioration of cartilage progresses until osteoarthritis impacts the elbow joint, causing joint inflammation, pain, stiffness and reduced range of motion. Advanced elbow osteoarthritis is sometimes accompanied by a grinding sensation (crepitus) when the joint is moved and/or pain radiating up the arm and into the upper back.

Tennis/Golfer's Elbow

Inflammation of the tendons and muscles surrounding the elbow joint is often called "tennis" or "golfer's" elbow, although anybody moving their elbow repetitively can suffer these conditions. Pain on the inside or outside of your elbow occurs if the joint's soft tissues suffer inflammation from repeated overuse.
