Elbow Pain

Are you grappling with elbow pain? There’s no need to endure another day with it. At Activa Clinics, our skilled team is dedicated to identifying the source of your pain and addressing the root causes to ensure lasting relief.

Common Symptoms:

Elbow issues can present with various symptoms, and we are equipped to help with the following common concerns:

  • Pain on the outside of your elbow
  • Pain on the inside of your elbow
  • Pain radiating to your forearm and wrist
  • Pain extending to your upper arm and shoulder
  • Pain in the elbow joint
  • Elbow pain during lifting
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Limited range of movement

Causes of Elbow Pain:

Elbow pain often results from inflammation of tendons in the arm due to overuse. However, various other causes, including more severe injuries and underlying health conditions, can contribute to elbow pain. Common causes include:

  • Tennis elbow: Straining or tearing of tendons on the outside of the elbow, often due to repetitive motions, not exclusive to tennis.
  • Golfer’s elbow: Similar to tennis elbow, affecting tendons on the inside of the elbow, often caused by forceful finger clenching and wrist use.
  • Stress fractures: Tiny cracks in bones caused by excessive force, common when starting a new exercise program or increasing activity intensity rapidly.
  • Arthritis: While less common in elbows compared to other joints, various types of arthritis can still lead to elbow pain.

Diagnosing Your Elbow Pain:

Our diagnostic process begins with a discussion about your symptoms, medical history, and treatment goals. A comprehensive physical exam follows, and we may utilize advanced diagnostic tools such as ultrasound, X-ray, and MRI to pinpoint the source of your elbow pain.
