When it comes to Elbow Pain, speak to the professionals at Optimal Osteopathy.
What You Need To Know
Here at Optimal Osteopathy, we know that Elbow Pain is most commonly due to overuse/repetitive activities, such as gripping a tennis racquet, golf club, screwdriver, doorknob, cash register job, keyboard typing or painting.
Trauma, such as a fall or knock to the elbow, or arthritis can also cause pain.
Symptoms can include pain which is aggravated with grasping an object or using the wrist against resistance, a weaker grip, constant ache, especially at night or sharp pain on moving the elbow.
If there is a trauma involved, there can be swelling or the elbow might 'not feel right' or move smoothly. Arthritis can also cause swelling and a grating noise in the elbow joint.
When you come visit us here at Optimal Osteopathy, your Osteopath will work with you to fully examine and diagnose the likely cause of your elbow pain and the structures involved.
Treatment typically involves a cluster of sessions in order to get the ball rolling followed by less-frequent sessions to keep the condition at bay.
Lifestyle alterations are also important when managing elbow pain. Since the cause of the problem may be repetitive actions such as keyboard typing, swinging a tennis racket or golf club your Osteopath will give you advise to decrease the frequency of pain.
Lifestyle alterations typically include diet, postural analysis and stretching and strengthening programmes.
