Elbow Conditions and Injuries We Treat
The elbow is a small yet complex joint that we use more often than we think, as it connects the bones in the bottom half of your arm to those in the top half. Because of its unique position and function, it is more likely to experience overuse, which can potentially lead to an array of severe injuries or conditions, many of which are going to requiring orthopedic treatment. With such a high risk of strain and overuse, there are a host of conditions that can manifest after you’ve experienced an elbow injury, including:
Biceps Tendon Rupture
This is often caused after experiencing excessive force suddenly, resulting in the bicep tendon near the elbow tearing.
Caused as a result of repetitive motion, bicep tendonitis is a series of micro-tears throughout the tendon. While muscles can repair micro-tears on their own, the repetitive motion causes tears faster than the muscle can heal, resulting in pain and discomfort.
This condition results in the overuse of the bursae (small, fluid-filled sacs) found on the elbow.
Usually the result of a fall or sudden impact accident, this occurs when the joints surfaces of an elbow are separated from one another.
Elbow fractures are almost always caused by a fall or sudden, forceful impact and can also lead to debilitating pain depending on the severity of the injury.
Medial and Lateral Epicondylitis
Medial epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow, is the inflammation of the tendons that join forearm muscles to the outside of the elbow. Lateral epicondylitis, or golfer’s elbow, is the inflammation of the tendons that attach the forearm to the elbow.
