The most common cause of elbow pain is tennis elbow, golfers elbow is less common. Both are a result of overuse or incorrect technique. If the area where the tendon is anchored to the bone is being overstressed, pain will result. Often this pain does not settle on its own. It will then require treatment to improve pain and elbow function. Exercises will also be prescribed to prevent re-occurrence.
Despite their names, this type of elbow pain can occur as a result of other physical activities and a variety of occupations. All kinds of sports such as swimming, cricket, basketball and rowing can result with people experiencing elbow pain. Many desk jobs with excessive keyboard and mouse work can also be culprits.To avoid chronic pain please consult one of our qualified practitioners at our Albert Park clinic.
At APSS we take a different approach to the generally accepted method of treatment. We actually look to prescribe exercises that evenly load the muscles in question, instead of trying to unload the affected area. Our practitioners at APSS believe this unique way of treating this often difficult, painful and chronic condition will hopefully have you walking out smiling and restoring normal function to your previously dysfunctional elbow.
