Elbow Pain Treatment

Elbow pain is characterized by discomfort or pain in the elbow joint. Medically, it can also encompass stiffness that hinders smooth movement. Additionally, elbow pain may manifest as numbness, tingling, or weakness in the elbow, radiating towards the upper or lower arm. Some individuals may experience pain while making a fist or moving their fingers, indicating an unhealthy elbow. In such cases, it is essential to consult an Orthopaedic Doctor to identify the underlying cause of the pain and pursue appropriate treatment.

Dr. Aravind Gandra in Hyderabad offers exceptional treatment for elbow pain, which may involve a combination of rest, medication, physiotherapy, and, if necessary, surgery.

Elbow Pain – Symptoms:

Elbow pain can manifest in various ways, and the symptoms may vary depending on the underlying cause. Common symptoms associated with elbow pain include:
• Pain or discomfort
• Stiffness and limited range of motion
• Numbness or tingling
• Weakness and difficulty gripping
• Swelling and inflammation
• Clicking or popping sounds

It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment based on the specific symptoms and underlying cause of elbow pain.

Elbow Pain – Causes:

Elbow pain can have several causes, which can range from injury and overuse to underlying medical conditions. Common causes of elbow pain include:

1. Tennis elbow (Lateral epicondylitis): This condition occurs due to overuse or repetitive strain on the tendons attached to the outside of the elbow. It is commonly associated with activities like tennis, hence the name, but can occur from any repetitive gripping or wrist extension movements.

2. Golfer’s elbow (Medial epicondylitis): Similar to tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow involves inflammation and pain on the inside of the elbow. It is caused by repetitive wrist flexion and gripping activities.

3. Elbow sprain or strain: Overstretching or tearing of ligaments or tendons in the elbow can result in pain and limited mobility. This can occur from a sudden impact or force applied to the elbow joint.

4. Elbow bursitis: Bursitis occurs when the small fluid-filled sacs (bursae) in the elbow become inflamed. This can be caused by repetitive pressure or trauma to the elbow, leading to pain, swelling, and limited movement.

5. Elbow fractures: Fractures or breaks in the bones of the elbow, such as the radius or ulna, can cause severe pain and require immediate medical attention.

6. Arthritis: Various forms of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, can affect the elbow joint and result in pain, stiffness, and inflammation.

7. Nerve compression: Compression of nerves in the elbow, such as the ulnar nerve (cubital tunnel syndrome) or radial nerve, can lead to pain, tingling, and weakness in the arm and hand.

8. Tendinitis: Inflammation of the tendons in the elbow, such as the biceps or triceps tendons, can cause pain and discomfort.

Other less common causes of elbow pain include infection, gout, referred pain from the neck or shoulder, and nerve entrapment syndromes.

It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment based on the specific cause of elbow pain.
