Elbow Pain: Understanding and Managing Your Discomfort

What Is Elbow Pain or What Causes Elbow Pain?

Elbow pain in Leeds residents is often linked to overuse and strain, affecting everyday tasks like gripping, carrying, or turning a key. The elbow and forearm muscles play a crucial role in wrist and hand function, making them susceptible to conditions like Golfer’s elbow (inside pain) and Tennis elbow (outside pain).

Symptoms of Elbow Pain You May Be Experiencing

Common symptoms include forearm tightness, wrist stiffness, weakened wrist muscles, and eventually pain. These signs indicate overuse or stress on the elbow tendons.

At Indergaard Physiotherapy, we assess the root causes of your elbow strain, often linked to shoulder and wrist issues. Our treatment plan may include targeted exercises, manual therapy, and techniques to reduce tendon stress and restore function.

Preventive Measures and Lifestyle Changes for Elbow Pain
