Elbow Pain

Elbow pain is most often a result of overuse, strain and stress, or wear and tear. Typically, the kind of elbow pain sports chiropractors treat is due to situations where repetitive motions in jobs or hobbies strain muscles, tendons and ligaments in and around the elbow. These activities include lifting weights, CrossFit, baseball, tennis, golf, knitting and keyboard use. To provide the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment, a thorough history and examination of the elbow and the surrounding areas must be performed. Common diagnosis of elbow pain includes tennis elbow, and golfers' elbow.
