What is causing your elbow pain?
There are many causes of elbow pain, from tennis elbow to fracture. This is why it’s important to see your doctor for a comprehensive evaluation. An accurate diagnosis is key to ensuring a proper treatment plan.
Here are several of the causes of elbow pain, many of which are triggered by repetitive activities or injury.
Lateral Epicondylitis– Tennis elbow
Lateral epicondylitis, also called tennis elbow, is the most common cause of elbow pain and refers to inflammation of the tendon that attaches the elbow bone to the forearm muscles used to extend the wrist and fingers. People who repetitively use their forearm muscles, such as tennis players, weightlifters, painters, and plumbers, are especially prone to developing lateral epicondylitis. Typically, the elbow pain from lateral epicondylitis is burning, comes on gradually, and worsens with activities that involve the use of the forearm extensor muscles like turning a wrench, mixing dough when baking, or holding a tennis racquet. Difficulties gripping objects is another potential symptom of lateral epicondylitis.
Medial Epicondylitis- Golfer’s elbow
Medial epicondylitis, also called golfer’s elbow, also causes discomfort around the elbow. However, the symptoms are located on the inner side of the elbow and are due to inflammation of the tendon that connects the elbow bone to the forearm muscles used to flex the wrist and fingers. Repetitive, forceful gripping (for example, of a golf club, racquet, or heavy tool) is often what triggers medial epicondylitis. Forearm weakness may also occur.
The olecranon bursa is a sac located between the tip of the elbow bone and the skin. When a patient has olecranon bursitis they usually have swelling and tenderness behind the joint over the bony prominence called the olecranon. If the swelling gets big enough, a person may not be able to fully move his or her elbow.
Chronic bursitis, meaning the condition develops slowly over time, is usually due to repetitive overuse (for example, prolonged pressure on the elbows) or inflammatory arthritis (for example, rheumatoid arthritis. These may be effectively treated by Regenerative Medicine.
Acute (“sudden”) olecranon bursitis usually develops as a result of gout, infection, or trauma to the elbow. These require immediate medical treatment for resolution of the problem before any Regenerative Medicine procedure, which might follow later on to relieve a more chronic underlying associated condition of the elbow (arthritis).
Biceps and Triceps Tendonitis
The biceps tendon connects the biceps muscle to the front of the elbow bone, while the triceps tendon connects the triceps muscle to the back of the elbow.
Biceps tendonitis is most commonly caused by repetitive biceps muscle activity (for example, lifting heavy boxes) and causes an aching pain in front of the elbow. On the other hand, triceps tendonitis causes an aching pain at the back of the elbow and is most commonly caused by people who repetitively extend their elbow against resistance (for example, weightlifters).
If a biceps or triceps tendon ruptures, a sudden, severe pain, along with a snapping or popping sensation, may be felt. This requires the immediate intervention of an orthopedic specialist.
Elbow Fractures and Elbow Dislocation.
Broken bones can occur around the elbow after injuries such as a fall on the elbow or an outstretched hand, or a direct blow to the elbow, such as from a car accident. These are not treated by Regenerative Medicine procedures and require the intervention of an orthopedic specialist.
