Elbow Pain

Best Elbow Pain Treatment in Coimbatore

Tennis elbow, formally known as lateral epicondylitis, is a very common and painful musculoskeletal condition affecting the elbow due to overuse. Tennis elbow is caused by an inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscle on the outside of the elbow. The forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from repetitive motions, resulting in pain and tenderness on the outside of the elbow.

The Elbow Joint

The elbow allows rotational movement and the ability to flex and extend your hand and forearm. It is a complex joint in which the humerus (upper arm bone) meets the ulna and the radius (the bones in the forearm) and forms a hinge joint. If the elbow joint gets damaged or injured, it can lead to symptoms such as pain, swelling, numbness, tingling, weakness, and can limit your range of motion.

Treatment for Elbow Pain

Treatment for elbow pain depends on the cause. Many injuries and conditions respond to non-surgical treatments including activity restriction, rest, ice therapy, physical therapy, and medication. Simple fractures often only require casting or splinting. Some conditions, such as complex fractures, may require surgical intervention to align the bones for proper healing. Your doctor may also recommend surgery if non-surgical treatments do not provide relief. The only way to determine what treatment will bring you relief is seeking an accurate diagnosis from an orthopaedic physician. If you experience any elbow pain that is disrupting your life, make an appointment with a physician to begin your journey to relief.
