Elbow Pain Physiotherapy At Physio4Wycombe
The elbow joint is the area of connection between the three long bones of the upper limb connect. As well as this there are a multitude of muscles, tendons, ligaments, a joint capsule and nerves attaching to or passing through the area all capable of causing pain, loss of strength, movement limitation and functional impairment requiring physiotherapy.
At Physio4Wycombe we frequently deal with people complaining of elbow conditions, commonly conditions requiring physiotherapy can be the result of overuse such as in the case of tendinopathies like “tennis and golfers elbow” or suffer more traumatic causes of elbow pain following falls like fractures to the neck of the radius or ligament and capsular injuries as a result of contact sports. The elbow is also a common site for referred pain meaning pain presenting in the elbow but originating from areas outside the elbow. Common areas capable of referring pain into the elbow includes the neck or shoulder.
