Common Causes Of Elbow Pain

Elbow pain, including 'Tennis Elbow', is when repeated stress from any activity is placed on the elbow joint. The main causes include:
pain
Repetitive strain (RSI) where repeated use overloads the elbow
pain
Long working hours with mouse and keyboard work
pain
Neck and shoulder trouble which affects the elbow
pain
Sports injuries, such as Tennis & Golf
pain
Falls, sprains and fractures where the elbow is vulnerable, even in children
pain
Musicians and craftsmen, long hours of practice

Elbow Pain Explained In Plain English

Elbow pain comes from the elbow joint and the muscles near it. It can also refer from the neck and shoulder, so you feel elbow pain but the elbow is actually ok.

Elbow pain ranges from annoying niggles and clicks that comes and goes, to severe disabling continuous pain that no amount of rest and painkillers seems to help.

Often elbow problems resolve with time, rest or reducing stress... More often the problem doesn’t get better properly and feels weak, painful or vulnerable, so you are afraid of getting back to normal activities. This is when a professional opinion and treatment is really helpful.

Untreated, these pains can go from short easy to fix problems, to long term and harder to fix problems. Nobody likes taking pain killers or contemplating surgery. It’s important to choose a treatment which is safe, effective and proven thousands of times over all over the world.

What Are The Major Causes Of Elbow Pain?

We've already dealt with some of the common causes such as accidents and overuse. However, let’s dive in a little deeper to see which elbow conditions Osteopathic care provides a safe non surgical solution for:

Tennis Elbow

Sadly, you don’t have to play tennis to get tennis elbow. It derives from the muscles which lift your hand back, like with using a mouse. Where the muscles come together at the elbow, that’s where you get overstrain and pain. It’s felt on the outside of the elbow near the bone.

Golfer's Elbow

This is similar to tennis elbow, but instead comes from the muscles in your forearm which pull your wrist forwards.

Knocks and Bumps

When you bump the exposed parts of the elbow, the bone is very close to the surface with minimal padding. The bone surface can get bruised.

Tendonitis

A lot of tendons cross the elbow joint at the front and at the side. They can get irritated and sore with overtraining or overwork without enough time for rest and recovery

RSI

Repetitive strain means you have hurt something, but kept going until your body finally says “STOP”. This is hard to repair as the area is often swollen with fraying of the tissues which need to repair.

How Does An Osteopath Treat Elbow Pain?

An Osteopath will only use their hands and brain to skilfully and logically assess your symptoms. We train for many years to feel what is normal and what is in trouble, and Osteopathy is a fantastic method for getting your body back in tip-top shape again.

We don’t use machines or ask you to do endless exercises that you find difficult and don’t help. We just get your body working properly by aligning everything, and getting the parts talking to each other. Treatment is typically very gentle and relaxing. Healing comes naturally without drugs or surgery. The elbow responds very well to being relaxed using our special techniques. And don’t worry, we will always check your neck and shoulder to see if the problem is related to other areas.

This means you can be well in a truly natural way, by in the end the miracle of your body healing itself.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show drastic improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected.

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
