Elbow Conditions

We provide services for a wide spectrum of inpatients and outpatients. A team approach, including physicians, advanced practice providers, and nurses, occupational therapy, and social services, is designed to ensure that the patient receives the care and training necessary to resume or improve previous levels of activity.

Elbow injuries can happen suddenly, as in a fall, or from wear and tear from everyday movement and activity. When an injury occurs, the elbow’s ability to function is disrupted, impacting the intricate workings of bones, muscles, ligaments and other structures. Treatments for elbow problems may include therapy, injections, medications or surgery.

Bursitis

Symptoms:

  • Pain, tenderness and swelling in the area
  • Deformity of the forearm
  • Possible open wound
  • Unable to turn or rotate forearm

Forearm Fractures

Forearm fractures are caused by bones broken between the elbow and wrist and are vital to the movement of this area.

Rupture of the Distal Biceps Tendon

Injury to the distal biceps tendon involves the tendon pulling away from where it is attached to the forearm, causing a rupture.

Symptoms:

  • Pain and swelling in the front of the elbow
  • Weakness when bending or twisting the elbow
  • Bruising
  • Snap or pop at time of injury

Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a condition associated with painful irritation in the elbow that is often caused by overuse.

Symptoms:

  • Pain on outside of elbow, may radiate down forearm
  • Pain when gripping or lifting objects
