Elbow Conditions

 

As a physiotherapist, I frequently encounter people presenting with various elbow pain and conditions. Among the most common are lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) and medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow), characterised by pain and tenderness on the outer and inner aspects of the elbow, respectively. Other common conditions include olecranon bursitis, cubital tunnel syndrome, and radial tunnel syndrome.

 

These elbow conditions can often result from overuse, repetitive strain, or direct trauma to the elbow joint and surrounding structures. A comprehensive assessment would allow a better understanding of the the specific diagnosis and then a tailored treatment plan along with management advice would be the primary aim to alleviate pain, restore function, and prevent recurrence.
