Elbow Pain

Did you know that common elbow conditions can be successfully treated by us here at Bezek Chiropractic and Rehabilitation? Chiropractic care is an excellent option for elbow pain relief because it avoids the use of surgeries or the reliance on medications.

Chiropractic care for elbow pain focuses on correcting the structural components, such as your muscles and bones, of your elbow, so that you can not only receive pain relief but have a strengthened elbow to prevent future elbow problems from reoccurring.

Two of the most common conditions associated with elbow pain, and for which Dr. Brian Bezak treats, are tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow.

  • ·         Lateral epicondylitis, more readily known as tennis elbow, is a type of tendonitis and inflammation that occurs from the overuse of the tendons and muscles that connect the muscles of the forearm. It is characterized by tenderness and pain over the outside area of the elbow.

  • ·         Medial epicondylitis, more commonly known as golfer’s elbow, is an inflammation at the focal point where the bony area of the inner elbow attaches to the tendons of the forearm. It is characterized by tenderness and pain in the inner elbow region.

Give us a call at 301-220-0496, if you are experiencing tenderness or pain in your elbow.
