One of the most overused joints in the body, the elbow is highly susceptible to injury. Your elbow joint consists of multiple muscles, three bones, lots of ligaments, and tendons, any of which could cause elbow pain. In most cases, this pain results from overuse, especially when executing repetitive movements with your hand, wrist, or arm.
Overuse injuries are common in specific work environments, and sports such as golf and tennis. However, elbow pain can also develop from joint inflammation, arthritis and tendinitis.
The cause of your elbow pain determines the best course of treatment. Our doctor may prescribe physical therapy, where you learn strengthening and stretching exercises for your arms. PRP therapy for tennis elbow may help with specific tendon injuries and can reduce pain from arthritis.
