Common Causes of Elbow Pain
In many cases, elbow pain is associated with inflammation. Finding the source of the inflammation is important to reducing and eliminating it. Your elbow pain may be caused by repetitive motion—such as that associated with swinging a tennis racket or pitching a baseball—understanding what types of activity you participate in will help us determine how best to approach your treatment. Of course, some repetitive motions (pitching a baseball is a great example) are also violent motions. The repetitive motion in that case may be a precursor to the injury. In other words, the repeated action of throwing a baseball and placing great stress on the elbow joint can lead to a more serious injury. It is because of such variables that we prioritize understanding you and what led to your injury.
