Elbow pain treatment in Winterville, NC

Treating Elbow Pain

You use your elbows a lot every day. Whether for sports, work or simple daily activities like cooking or cleaning, you wouldn’t be able to do much if it weren’t for your elbows. If you’re someone who suffers from chronic elbow pain, you know exactly what we’re talking about.

Chronic elbow pain is more serious than the pain you feel when you bang your elbow on the counter. Occasional minor elbow pain like this is a normal part of life and usually goes away after a few days. Chronic elbow pain is the sign of a serious condition and grows worse without treatment. It limits your mobility and causes a lot of discomfort. Eventually, it can lead to permanent disability and other problems.

Fortunately, people with elbow pain can visit a physical therapist for help.

Most of this pain is the result of overuse in physical activity. However, regardless of the cause, a physical therapist can find a treatment that can help you reduce your elbow pain.
