Elbow

Offering a variety of treatment options for elbow conditions from conservative management to surgical intervention.

Elbow conditions develop acutely, or with overuse.

The elbow is a hinge joint between the radius and ulna of the forearm, and the humerus of the upper arm. The bones are held together by ligaments with the primary ligaments being the medial collateral ligament (MCL) and the lateral collateral ligament (LCL).  There are several muscles surrounding the joint that are responsible for movement., and tendons attaching the muscle to the bone. Cartilage covers and protects the ends of the bones and bursa sacs provide lubrication and protection of the joint. 

As with any other joint in the body, elbow conditions develop from chronic overuse, or acute accidents or injuries.  Symptoms may include pain, swelling, numbness, tingling, weakness or decreased range of motion.
