Elbow Pain Hakuba
Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow and Post-Trauma Rehab
The elbow is a relatively simple and resilient hinge joint, however when it does get injured is invariably slow to heal. Tennis elbow and Golfer’s elbow are common injuries that we have extensive experience in treating. Also known as lateral/medial epicondylitis, tennis/golfer’s elbow is a breakdown and micro-tearing of the tendons just below the elbow joint, causing pain with wrist and elbow use. These conditions commonly relate to neck issues and can exacerbate the pain.
Chronic stiffness and loss of strength can be secondary to a traumatic injury, such as a fracture or post surgery. If left untreated, movement can be restricted permanently as these conditions require regular therapy to return to full function.
