The elbow can be a real pain sometimes
Elbow pain presents itself in the form of a sharp or aching pain, combined with a feeling of weakness when attempting common tasks. In some cases, elbow pain can be referred from the neck or be associated with wrist dysfunction. The symptoms in both of these common elbow complaints are often worsened with forearm activity, like using a computer mouse, turning a door handle, carrying bags or even shaking hands.
Elbow pain can come about from doing any number of activities on a regular basis. Common signs and symptoms of “tennis elbow” can include pain or burning on the outer part of your elbow; and pain with wrist and elbow extension.
Common signs and symptoms of “golfer’s elbow” can include pain or burning on the inside part of your elbow; and pain with hand gripping and elbow flexion.
A chiropractor can accurately diagnose the pain or injury and insure proper function of the elbow and wrist joints to speed up recovery and minimize the risk of re-injury.
