 Are you a Niles or Northbrook resident with elbow pain? Elbow pain is a common symptom for people who undertake exercise or weight training after a few years off, overuse activities such as typing or machine work with hands or instrument playing.
If you play tennis or golf regularly, you may suffer from golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow. Lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow, is tendonitis of the common extensor tendon on the outside of your elbow. Golfer’s elbow or medial epicondylitis is tendonitis of the common flexor tendon on the inside of your elbow. If you have been experiencing pain or symptoms in these areas for a prolonged time, the tendinitis could have progressed to chronic tendinitis or tendinitis or tendinopathy. These conditions can take a longer time to heal and properly rehabilitate, therefore proper awareness and prevention is key.


Treatment typically consists of a proper assessment into the root cause of the signs and symptoms. Elbow pain pain usually presents as a by product of decreased mobility either up or down the kinetic chain. Poor wrist mobility or poor shoulder mobility can strain the muscles around the elbow during exercises and sport related movements. Soft tissue therapy in the form of ART is the gold standard in care for both golfer’s and tennis elbow. Proper rehabilitation and strength work is necessary to accompany the soft tissue therapy. Call today to see how we can help!
