Why is My Elbow Hurting?
The elbow is one of the most versatile parts of the body. This hinge joint is responsible for all manner of daily tasks that we take for granted. However, when we develop a problem with either the muscles, joints, or ligaments involved with our elbow, it can quickly consume the bulk of our attention. If our elbows are hurting us, we find it difficult to do things like carrying laundry, cooking, playing games, or working out. In short, having elbow pain can negatively affect our quality of life.
The overall wellbeing of your elbows can be affected by numerous conditions. Injuries are among the most common reasons someone may develop elbow pain. One of the most common elbow injuries is caused by ground-level falls, especially in elderly adults. In fact, an elderly adult falls once every second in the United States, making ground-level falls the leading cause of injury and death amongst this population . Although hip pain, whiplash, and head trauma are more prevalent in these falls, elbow injuries also frequently occur. These elbow injuries usually happen when the person who’s falling, reflexively tries to break their fall by reaching out with their arm or elbow.
Another common cause of elbow-related pain is repetitive motion injuries. For example, a person can develop chronic pain from doing a job that requires a constant, monotonous motion that wears on the joints, muscles, and ligaments of the elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand. These repetitive motion injuries are considered a workplace injury and may be susceptible to a worker’s compensation claim.
Sport-related injuries to the elbow are often caused by over-training the arm muscles. As a result, acute and chronic elbow joint pain frequently occurs in the athletic community. Student and young athletes often get repetitive motion injuries to their elbows from participating in sports like baseball and tennis. This is why elbow strains and elbow sprains are often called Little League Elbow or Tennis Elbow. Of course, pediatric patients are not the only ones who suffer from tennis elbow. Many adult patients get elbow sprains from overdoing it while weightlifting, playing Frisbee golf, or golfing. This occurs so frequently in the latter sport that these elbow injuries are also often referred to as Golfer’s Elbow.
Medical conditions can often contribute to acute and chronic elbow pain. Arthritis is one of the most common causes of joint-related pain. In fact, more than 32 million adults in the United States are affected by arthritis . Although arthritis can affect people at any age, people over the age of sixty experience more frequently.
Listed below are a few of the more common causes of elbow joint pain:

After the assessment is complete, the chiropractors initiate treatment. This is accomplished by manually realigning any misalignments in the patient’s spine, elbows, or other afflicted joints. Patients may experience a slight pop in their spine and joints during this realignment. Once your spine and joints are correctly realigned into their proper position, your nervous system’s ability to send and receive signals will improve significantly. This should alleviate your pain, improve your joint’s stability, and function. Patients may feel some relief after their initial treatment, but often, chiropractic takes multiple sessions before they feel any significant relief.
