Understanding The Causes Of  Your Elbow Pain

Elbow pain, or commonly known as tennis elbow, may develop over time. Repetitive motions that involve gripping and can cause strain on the muscles while also putting stress on the tendons. Tennis elbow can result from: 

  • Tennis 
  • Racquetball 
  • Squash
  • Fencing
  • Weight lifting 
  • And many other physical activities

Diagnosing Your Elbow Pain

Elbow pain can be most easily diagnosed with a physical examination as well as a review of previous health history. Your healthcare professional will  most likely be able to diagnosis elbow pain in such a way but if further testing is required it may include an X-ray examination, MRI scan, or an arthrogram test. 

To properly diagnose elbow pain and to determine a treatment plan that is appropriate for your specific condition, seeking professional care is the most effective way to begin relieving your symptoms.*

Treatment Options For Elbow Pain

There are a variety of treatments for elbow pain, depending on the cause of the pain and its severity. Treatments for inflammation can include immobilization or anti-inflammatory medications whereas treatments for more severe elbow pain may include a cast or surgical repair. If there is a diagnosis of infection in the area, treatments can include drainage and antibiotics.

*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment varies from patient to patient and depending on your specific condition. The New York City Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
