Orthopedic Causes & Treatment for Elbow Pain

 

Commonly referred to as "Tennis Elbow," lateral epicondylitis symptoms occur around the elbow joint and may radiate down the arm. The orthopedic condition affects the ability to grip objects and extend the wrist and is also seen in golfers, gardeners and do-it-yourself home repair devotees. Elbow pain can be caused by orthopedic conditions including:

  • Arthritis-inflammation, swelling and stiffness of the joint
  • Repetitive arm movements-such as tennis or golf swings
  • Work-related repetitive movements-such as hammering and painting or raking
  • Orthopedic sprains and strains-- overuse or over-exertion causing inflammation of soft tissues

Recommended orthopedic treatment for shoulder pain includes:

  • Rest
