Elbow pain can be the manifestation of several unique injuries. From the tennis and golfer’s elbows to cubital or radial tunnel syndrome, elbow afflictions can leave you incapacitated and in considerable pain.
Symptoms vary for many elbow injuries or distresses. Folks suffering from bursitis may experience swelling, stiffness and sharp, lasting pain deep in their elbow joints. Victims of tennis elbow typically experience pain that radiates from the exterior elbow down the length of their forearm, while golfer’s elbow frequently results in stiffness and weakness. Those that live with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can attest to the debilitating pain and exasperation these conditions can cause.
For most of these elbow conditions, physical therapy can work wonders; in fact, there are many elbow maladies that can be successfully treated in a matter of weeks. While issues such as arthritis don’t necessarily have proven cures, physical therapy has shown to improve the condition of both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
