Elbow

elbow-painIs elbow pain affecting your recreational activities or work duties? Or is it simply preventing you from performing those simple everyday tasks such as opening jars or carrying your bag?

Elbow pain can affect many people over their lifetime and can be extremely debilitating, preventing you from performing simple daily tasks. The onset can be sudden due to trauma, develop over a longer period of time due to overuse, or be referred pain from the neck.  While many therapists see elbow pain as a relatively straightforward condition to manage, we understand that there may be a number of contributing factors to your pain, and simply treating 1 or 2 of these will not get you a good long lasting outcome. That is why at Whittlesea Physiotherapy we employ the very latest in diagnostic techniques and provide individual management plans to ensure all bases are covered and an optimal outcome is reached.  Some common conditions seen include:

  • Lateral Epicondylitis (‘Tennis Elbow”)
  • Medial Epicondylitis (‘Golfer’s Elbow)
  • Cartilage injuries
  • Neck injuries cause pain to refer into the arm / elbow region
  • Fractures

Physiotherapy treatment may include techniques such as:

  • Soft tissue mobilisation
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Dry needling
  • Taping
  • The provision of a brace
  • Exercises
  • Advice
