Elbow Pain Relief

Tennis Elbow, Golfer's Elbow Or Any Other Elbow...

Chiropractic Care for Elbow Pain Relief

The elbow is a hinge joint (just like a door hinge) that bends allows the forearm and wrist to flex and extend. The elbow is where the two bones of the forearm – the radius on the thumb side of the arm and the ulna on the pinky finger side – meet the bone of the upper arm -- the humerus. Dysfunction around the elbow joint can cause local elbow pain, radiating pain to the hand or shoulder, and future dysfunction in the wrist or shoulder joint if not addressed. Our doctors help you achieve elbow pain relief and improve the function of the elbow joint. Getting elbow pain relief can make a word of difference when performing daily tasks, while exercising, or performing on the job tasks.

 

Causes and Symptoms of Elbow Pain

 

Elbow pain is attributed to various causes such as:

  • Nerve Entrapments aka “Pinched Nerve”

  • Trauma such as falling or sports injuries

  • Overuse conditions like Tennis Elbow or Golfer’s Elbow

  • Straining a muscle

  • Disc injuries in the cervical spine

  • Conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, etc.

 

If you have any of the following symptoms, you should start to consider seeking treatment for your elbow pain:


 

  • Elbow discomfort that doesn’t go away with stretching or ice

  • Elbow pain that persists while at rest

  • Discoloration and swelling near the elbow

  • Decreased range of motion in the elbow

  • Pain radiating to or from the elbow to/from the hand/wrist, shoulder, or neck

  • Pain in your elbow when moving your wrist, shoulder, or neck

Treatments that Offer Elbow Pain Relief


We recommend several methods of treatment to help relieve the pain and get you back to normal.

  1. Active Release Technique (ART) – ART is a highly effective method for releasing scar tissue around muscles, ligaments and nerves. Scar tissue is much like velcro and velcro makes movement hurt. ART is THE technique for releasing the velcro. Few doctors are certified, and we are part of ART's "Elite Provider Network.

  2. Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization – An instrument is used to perform “cross fiber massage” over a problematic area while the patient moves to stretch, provoke or challenge the tissues. FAKTR is the gold standard for repairing tissue damage.

  3. Motion Palpation Adjustments – This chiropractic technique is the state-of-the-art in assessing and adjusting the spine and extremities. Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine is part of an elite network of chiropractors certified by the Motion Palpation Institute (MPI).

  4. Functional Rehab Exercises – Our elite treatments change the way you move so you stop hurting and stop the "pattern" that made you start hurting. Stretches, that are unique to each patient, help us loosen what is tight or heal what is injured. Exercises train your brain to stabilize where stability is lost or move / sit / stand the way you were intended, so you stop the vicious cycle of causing your own pain. If you will help us by doing what we ask, we will keep you better, longer!

  5. Dry Needling - Dry Needling involves the insertion of a thin filament needle to stimulate the healing process of soft tissues (muscle "trigger points", fascia, tendons and ligaments, etc.) in order to provide pain relief and tissue healing.  This therapy is very effective for chronically tight and painful muscles also referred to as trigger points.
