Elbow Pain

Elbow Pain

Don’t let pain in your elbow slow you down! Our McHenry, IL Physical Therapist can help.

Three bones converge in the middle of your arm to form the elbow joint. It is essential to everyday activities like holding grocery bags, shoveling the driveway and driving your car. When pain becomes persistent, simple tasks can become incredibly difficult and frustrating.

Some of the most common causes of elbow injury are:

  • Fractures
  • Strained or Torn muscles
  • Dislocated Elbow
  • Bursitis
  • Lateral (Tennis Elbow) & Medial (Golfer’s Elbow) Epicondylitis
  • Pinched Nerve

  • Elbow sprains occur very commonly in athletes, specifically those who throw, swing a racquet, or engage in physical contact. Proper stretching, icing and heat can help mitigate minor sprains, but when the pain won’t go away, give Ortho Go Physical & Aquatic Therapy a call!

    Post-Op care for Elbow Surgeries

    If your elbow injury is significant enough to require surgery, it is extremely important that you hire an expert to put together a great post-op treatment plan. We’ve helped McHenry, IL patients get back to normal after surgery since 1988. With a focus on patient education, our treatment plans are custom fit to your specific injury, goals and capabilities.
