Elbow pain can be debilitating, not allowing us to perform daily activities or even work. There are many causes for elbow pain ranging from excessive use of the arm to more severe injuries. Regardless of the cause, elbow pain can be treated effectively with chiropractic care. Dr. Azien Mousavi at Divine Healing Chiropractic offers specialized care for elbow pain using Chiropractic BioPhysics® and other chiropractic modalities. In this blog post, we will explore the five common causes of elbow pain and how Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help to treat it.
Elbow fractures can be caused by traumatic injuries such as sports or falls. This type of injury can cause swelling, bruising, and a lack of range of motion in the arm. Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help in reducing the swelling and increase the range of motion by restoring normal biomechanics in the joint. Dr. Mousavi will create a custom treatment plan that includes manipulation, mobilization, and rehabilitation exercises.
This is a common condition that affects people who engage in repetitive motions, such as tennis players and painters. Tennis elbow occurs when the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the elbow become inflamed. Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help with tennis elbow by addressing the alignment of the elbow joint, reducing inflammation, and strengthening the muscles.
This type of injury is caused by overuse of the arm, particularly in repetitive motions such as tennis. Tennis elbow causes pain on the outside of the elbow and can radiate down to the forearm. Chiropractic BioPhysics® can address tennis elbow by correcting joint mechanics and muscle imbalances in the elbow and forearm. Dr. Mousavi will also recommend stretches and exercises aimed at reducing inflammation and improving range of motion.
Related: Sports Injuries
Injuries from sports or physical activity can result in elbow pain. Whether it’s a sprain, strain, or fracture, Chiropractic BioPhysics® can be an effective non-surgical treatment option. Dr. Azien Mousavi takes a comprehensive approach to treating sports injuries, including manual manipulation, soft tissue therapy, and exercise rehabilitation techniques.
Similar to tennis elbow, golf elbow affects golfers and others who perform repeated wrist flexion and extension movements. Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help alleviate golf elbow pain by restoring joint alignment and encouraging healing through specific exercises and stretches.
Golfer’s elbow is much like a tennis elbow in that it is caused by overuse of the arm in repetitive motions such as golfing. Golfer’s elbow causes pain on the inside of the elbow and can also radiate down to the forearm. Chiropractic BioPhysics® can address the golfer’s elbow by restoring normal joint mechanics and correcting muscle imbalances. Dr. Mousavi will also recommend stretches and exercises aimed at reducing inflammation and improving range of motion.
Related: Repetitive Stress Injuries
If you work in an occupation that requires repetitive motions such as typing, you may be at an increased risk for developing elbow pain. Chiropractic BioPhysics® offers a holistic approach to alleviate your discomfort and correct the underlying misalignments that may lead to more serious conditions down the road.
Elbow bursitis occurs when the bursa (a fluid-filled sac) between the bone and tendon becomes inflamed. This type of injury can cause pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the joint. Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help alleviate elbow bursitis by reducing inflammation and correcting joint mechanics. Dr. Mousavi may also recommend rest, ice, and gentle exercises to help with healing.
Related: Elbow Arthritis
Elbow arthritis can cause pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. Unlike traditional medical treatments that may involve surgery or medications, Chiropractic BioPhysics® provides a non-invasive approach that focuses on restoring optimal joint function, reducing inflammation, and improving the overall quality of life.
Radial Tunnel Syndrome:
This type of injury occurs when the radial nerve becomes compressed or irritated in the forearm. This can cause pain in the forearm and wrist, in addition to the elbow. Chiropractic BioPhysics® can address radial tunnel syndrome by correcting muscle imbalances and reducing joint dysfunction. Dr. Mousavi will also recommend stretches and exercises aimed at reducing inflammation and improving range of motion.
