What Kind of Elbow Pain Can a Chiropractor Treat?
Dr. Chau can treat any type of pain in your elbow or other extremities. Chiropractic adjustments can align your whole body, easing aches and pains and improving your range of motion. Some common elbow conditions that our chiropractor can treat include:
The joints are protected by fluid-filled sacs called bursae. If the shock absorbers in the elbow are injured or inflamed, it can leave you with shooting pain in the elbow and can even prevent you from moving your arm. Bursitis can be caused by an injury, arthritis, and can even occur when you put too much pressure on your elbow.
Through joint manipulation and adjustments, we can help reduce your inflammation and restore your mobility. In addition, you may be advised to ice your elbow and do some stretches to strengthen the muscles that support your joints.
Despite its name, you don't have to play tennis to develop tennis elbow. It's a form of tendonitis that appears when you overuse the muscles and tendons in your forearm. It can leave you with pain, shaky hands, and make it hard for you to grasp objects.
While this condition will usually go away on its own, a chiropractor can help your muscles to heal through joint manipulation and soft tissue therapy to help them heal faster. We may also recommend that you rest your arm while you recover.
This is another type of elbow injury caused by muscle and tendon strain. It can leave you with pain and stiffness in the inner elbow as well as weakness in the wrist and hands. Our chiropractor can relieve this pain and speed up healing through joint manipulation and massage.
