Your elbow isn’t just that bump halfway down your arm;
a lot of your daily life hinges on its effectiveness. Many bones, tendons and nerves make up and are related to your elbow. So injury, disease or pain in your elbows can cause pain in your entire arm and affect your ability to reach out for or pick up items. Even your favorite hobbies can become a sore subject.
Allow Mercyhealth to check your elbows for signs of osteoarthritis or sports-related injuries. We also treat the results of traumatic injuries that break or dislocate an elbow.
Elbow pain is often not symptomatic of a major health issue, but it can be frustrating. If you think you’re having orthopedic elbow pain, it could be:
- Arthritis of the elbow
- Nerve entrapment in the elbow
- Repetitive stress injury from sports (tennis, golf or other) or work
- A dislocation or fracture
Mercyhealth Orthopedic Center of Excellence offers a range of treatments from conservative to more invasive: physical therapy, orthopedic devices, injection therapies and joint surgery or joint replacement.
