Elbow pain usually isn’t serious, but because you use your elbow in so many ways, elbow pain can be very frustrating. Your elbow is a complex joint; it allows you to both extend and flex, as well as rotate your hand and forearm. Since most movements are a combination of these actions, you may sometimes find it difficult to describe exactly which movement brings on the pain.
Common causes of elbow pain include but are not limited to:
- Golfers Elbow
- Tennis Elbow
Treatments commonly include:
Interventional injections such as steroid injections under X-ray guidance, nerve blocks.
Stem cell treatment may provide relief in patients who are not responding to standard treatment options.
Surgical treatments should be a last resort, in cases where interventional injections are not effective.
