Elbow Pain Treatment in Clearwater

Comprehensive Care for Elbow Conditions

The elbow joint is a complex hinge joint between the upper arm and forearm that is also designed to allow rotation of the forearm for opening doors, bottles, etc. Some of the conditions that occur at the elbow joint may be caused by repetitive movement of the elbow following sports like tennis and golf.

Are you experiencing pain in your:

  • Elbow region
  • Hand and fingers
  • Forearm
  • Upper arm

If so, our orthopedists can help. We provide comprehensive care and treatment for elbow pain. We begin by using the most conservative techniques and only recommend surgery as a last resort. Our knowledgeable team can not only help you find relief from the pain but provide education and exercise instructions that will help prevent reoccurring injuries.

If you have experienced elbow pain for more than a week, don’t wait to schedule an appointment with an orthopedist. Call Comprehensive Spine Institute in Clearwater today at (727) 300-2537.

Common Elbow Conditions

Like most joint pains, elbow conditions are usually caused by injury or wear-and-tear. Not all elbow conditions will need treatment. In many cases, the pain will go away on its own within a week. However, if you have had constant pain for more than a week that doesn’t improve with over-the-counter painkillers, you should schedule an appointment with a doctor.

Conditions that cause elbow pain include:

  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Tendinitis such as golfers or tennis elbow
  • Tendon ruptures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Nerve entrapment syndromes such as cubital tunnel compressions
  • Bursitis
  • Inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis etc.

We Explore Noninvasive Treatments First

We perform comprehensive assessments that may include x-rays, MRIs, ultrasound, and arthroscopy to identify the problem and determine treatment choices. Based on the results of the diagnosis, elbow treatment may be treated conservatively with physical therapy, splinting, casting, shots, or medication.

Surgical treatment may be necessary and this could involve arthroscopes and minimally invasive surgery to pinning and plating for fracture repair. We will only use this as a last resort if conservative treatments are ineffective or the condition is severe enough that surgery is warranted.

Many elbow injuries are sports-related and our surgeons are certified in sports orthopedics and provide extensive acute care management and rehabilitation for sports injuries.
