Elbow Pain

Elbow pain and injury respond favourably to physiotherapy intervention when early treatment is sought.

An accurate diagnosis is vital to the correct management of your elbow pain. Elbow pain can be caused by local muscle, tendon or joint injury. Alternatively, elbow pain can be referred from your neck joints. It's similar to sciatica of the upper limb.

Many elbow conditions can take many months or even years to heal when the diagnosis is incorrect or treatment is neglected early. Please do not delay in consulting your physiotherapist if you experience elbow pain.
