How To Treat Your Elbow Pain
If you’ve got pain in your elbow you know it can be detrimental to most tasks you’re going to try and perform. And elbow pain can be due to tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, arthritis, tendonitis, a trapped nerve and more, though these are the most common reasons you’ll feel pain there.
When Should You See a Doctor for Elbow Pain?
If you see a protruding bone in your elbow, there is an excessive amount of swelling, or an obvious deformity of some kind, see a doctor right away. Otherwise you might be fine to see one of our chiropractors or physiotherapists, who will be able to diagnose you and tell you if you need x-rays or some other kind of conventional intervention.
More chronic elbow pain can also be treated with chiropractic care or physiotherapy, though you may also find relief seeing one of our acupuncturists, osteopaths or possibly even one of our massage therapists (if the cause can be mitigated by working on surrounding muscle tissue).
What Can You Do to Treat Your Elbow Pain?
Manual therapy for elbow pain like that which you’d receive at Yellow Gazebo will involve the right manipulations to your arm (and sometimes your shoulder and/or neck as well), to help bring more blood flow to your elbow and help relieve your elbow pain. And your YG therapist will know the correct exercise(s) to give to you as homework to both make you feel better, and also to prevent the pain from coming back. How many treatments you’ll need to get better will depend on the severity of your condition, and your adherence to your therapist-prescribed exercise schedule.
It may also be suggested that you try using some heat, ice, a brace or something else to help facilitate your healing, and once your pain is gone it may be advised that you do some exercises to build up the proper muscles to prevent your pain from returning.
