Comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment

Our elbow therapy programs begin with a thorough evaluation by our skilled therapists. We assess the range of motion, strength, and any limitations you may be experiencing in your elbow. This evaluation guides us in creating a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific condition and functional goals.

Types of Elbow Therapy Treatments

Our experienced therapists utilize a range of therapeutic interventions to target the root cause of your elbow issues and promote healing. These may include:

  • Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques to mobilize and stretch the soft tissues around the elbow joint, enhancing flexibility and reducing pain.
  • Therapeutic Exercises: Customized exercises designed to strengthen the muscles surrounding the elbow joint, improve stability, and restore full range of motion.
  • Modalities: Using heat, cold, ultrasound, or electrical stimulation to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing.
  • Functional Training: Tailored activities replicating your daily tasks or sports-specific movements to restore your function and performance.
  • Postural Education: Instruction on maintaining proper elbow alignment and posture to prevent further strain and promote overall elbow health.

Elbow conditions treated with therapy

Elbow therapy is beneficial for individuals experiencing a variety of elbow-related conditions, including:

  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): If you have lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow, elbow therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation in the tendons on the outer part of the elbow.
  • Golfer's Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis): For those with medial epicondylitis, also known as golfer's elbow, elbow therapy can aid in alleviating pain and discomfort in the tendons on the inner part of the elbow.
  • Elbow Tendonitis: If you have tendonitis in the elbow, therapy can be beneficial in managing pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting healing of the affected tendons.
  • Elbow Fractures: Individuals recovering from elbow fractures can benefit from therapy to regain elbow mobility, strength, and function after healing.
  • Elbow Dislocation: For those who have experienced an elbow dislocation, therapy can help stabilize the joint and support the rehabilitation process.
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome: If you are dealing with cubital tunnel syndrome, a condition where the ulnar nerve is compressed at the elbow, therapy can relieve symptoms and improve nerve function.
  • Use Injuries: Athletes and individuals engaged in elbow movements, such as baseball pitchers or weightlifters, can benefit from elbow therapy to prevent injuries and enhance performance.
  • Post-Surgical Rehabilitation: Following elbow surgeries, including elbow arthroscopy or biceps tendon repair, therapy is vital in promoting healing and restoring elbow strength and function.
  • General Elbow Pain: If you experience persistent elbow pain or discomfort without a specific injury, elbow therapy can help identify and address underlying issues contributing to your symptoms.
