Orthopedic Elbow Treatment

Orthopedic elbow treatment is the medical care of conditions affecting the elbow joint and its surrounding structures. Orthopedic elbow treatment can include nonoperative and surgical options, depending on the type and severity of the injury or disorder. Some common elbow conditions are bursitis, cartilage injuries, tendon injuries, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, ulnar nerve entrapment, and ligament tears. Orthopedic elbow treatment aims to relieve pain, restore function, and prevent complications.

Elbow Pain & Discomfort

Man with elbow painElbow pain is most often caused by overuse. Sports or work activities that require repetitive motions of the hand, wrist or arm can result in inflammation of the elbow’s tendons.  The discomfort felt is known as tendonitis. In addition to overuse, pain in the elbow can come from a fracture, arthritis, sprains and bursitis of inflammation of the joint cushions.

Home treatment for sore elbows involves resting, applying heat, completing stretches or wearing a brace.  It is important to seek treatment from a qualified specialist if your elbow is not responding to treatment OR if you have suffered an immediate injury (fracture, break, etc.)
