Diagnosing Your Condition
When you experience an injury, you’ll likely feel pain inside or outside of your elbow as you extend your joint, rotate your arm, or grip an object. This pain may radiate up and down your arm or be accompanied by tingling sensations, swelling, and tenderness. After reviewing your medical history and performing a physical examination, your elbow physician will determine whether you suffer from:
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Pitcher’s elbow
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- A fracture
- Bone spurs
- A dislocation
- A ruptured biceps tendon
- Another condition
In some cases, one of our elbow doctors may order imaging, lab, or electrodiagnostic testing in order to rule out more serious conditions and create a treatment regimen that lays the groundwork for long-lasting recovery.
At Premier Bone & Joint Centers, we want to make sure to offer caring and attentive treatment. So whenever possible, our elbow doctors will recommend non-invasive treatment options, like behavior modification, immobilization, physical therapy, and over-the-counter pain medication. Sometimes, more serious conditions require surgical intervention in order to restore pain-free movement. If this is the case for you, you can rest easy knowing you’re in good hands—our experienced surgical team stays up to date on the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. We’ll keep your procedure as minimally invasive as possible so that you can return to doing the things you love as quickly and safely as possible.
