Elbow Pain Treatment

There are several factors that may contribute to pain or discomfort in the elbow. If you’re experiencing tingling, numbness, tenderness, swelling or pain in the elbow and surrounding area, you may need to seek medical attention.

Sports-related injuries are among the most common contributors to elbow pain. Elbow pain can also occur while enjoying your favorite hobbies or by performing a task as simple as reaching for something in your home. Regardless of the cause of your injury, we can help. Some common types of elbow conditions include:

  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Bicep tear
  • Dislocation
  • Strains
  • Cubital tunnel
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractures
  • Tennis elbow

These conditions are often caused by injury to the bone, ligaments or cartilage in your elbow. Sometimes, patients are able to find alternative ways to manage the pain. However, not all types of pain and injury can go untreated.

Our experienced orthopedic physicians at Northeast Georgia Medical Center are highly qualified and trained to handle varying degrees of elbow pain due to sports or other related injuries. They can help you identify the best possible course of action so you can get back to enjoying your favorite hobbies and activities.
