Caring for Tennis Elbow & More at Dignity Health Central California
Your elbow is made up of many parts. These include bones, ligaments, tendons, joint fluid, and cushioning structures called bursae. When any of these parts are damaged or injured, you can experience elbow pain.
You may have elbow pain from any of these common causes:
- Strains and sprains
- Tendonitis, including golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow
Overuse and injury can cause elbow pain that can last several weeks or come and go over time. In addition to the pain you feel, elbow symptoms also can cause tenderness, stiffness, swelling, and limited movement.
Elbow Treatment to Get You Swinging Again
Your specific elbow condition will help your doctor determine the best treatment and prevention options. Most elbow pain is relieved with rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medicines.
For pain that does not respond to these treatments, your Dignity Health Central California doctor may recommend elbow surgery to repair damage. Physical therapy can help speed the healing process and prevent future elbow problems.
