Ease Arm and Elbow Pain for Better Functionality

Arm and elbow pain can significantly hinder your ability to perform daily tasks, from lifting objects to typing on a keyboard. This discomfort is often caused by repetitive motions, sudden impacts, or overuse injuries. Conditions like tennis elbow, fractures, and tendinitis are common culprits.

Arm and Elbow

Anatomy of the
Arm and Elbow

Anatomical areas in the arm & elbow that are most often injured:

  • Rotator Cuff: A group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder, often torn due to repetitive overhead activities.
  • Biceps Tendon: Connects the biceps muscle to the shoulder and elbow, commonly injured through overuse or lifting heavy objects.
  • Triceps Tendon: Connects the triceps muscle to the elbow, prone to injury from sudden force or repetitive strain.
  • Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL): A ligament on the inner side of the elbow, frequently torn in throwing athletes.
  • Radial Head: The top part of the radius bone in the elbow, often fractured during falls onto an outstretched hand.
  • Olecranon (Elbow Tip): The bony prominence of the elbow, susceptible to fractures and bursitis from direct trauma.
  • Medial and Lateral Epicondyles: Bony protrusions on the elbow, commonly affected by tendinitis known as golfer's elbow (medial) and tennis elbow (lateral).

Common Causes of
Arm and Elbow

Arm and elbow pain can arise from a variety of sources. Common causes include repetitive motions, which can lead to conditions like tennis elbow; sudden impacts, which may result in fractures or dislocations; and overuse injuries, often seen in athletes and manual labourers.

Other frequent triggers are poor ergonomics, leading to muscle strain and tendinitis, and improper lifting techniques, which can strain the biceps and triceps tendons. Underlying medical conditions such as arthritis, nerve compression syndromes, and bursitis can also contribute to arm and elbow pain. Identifying the specific cause is crucial for effective treatment and relief.

How a Chiropractor helps with Arm and Elbow Pain

Chiropractic care can be an effective way to treat arm and elbow pain, especially when it's caused by conditions like tennis elbow or repetitive strain injuries. A chiropractor can perform adjustments to the elbow joint and surrounding areas to reduce inflammation and improve joint function.

These adjustments help realign the bones and relieve pressure on the nerves, which can reduce pain and improve mobility. Additionally, chiropractors may use techniques like soft tissue therapy to address muscle tightness and promote healing.

By addressing the root cause of the pain, chiropractic care can provide long-term relief without relying on medications.
