The elbow serves as the bridge between our wrist and our shoulder. At HealthBridge we do understand this complex anatomical structure and the importance in plays in our daily function. Common elbow complaints include overuse injuries, nerve entrapments, sports injuries and traumatic type injuries such as those related to work or motor car accidents.
For any patient with an elbow complaint it is important to perform a detailed history and physical examination and order any medically necessary diagnostic testing to come up with a proper diagnosis for the patient. Common treatment plans consist of joint mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue techniques to the muscles of the forearm and upper arm, therapeutic modalities and stretching and strengthening exercises. It is also important to evaluate stressors of the elbow and help our patient with lifestyle modifications and provide home exercises.
At HealthBridge Chiropractic we understand how an elbow injury can impact a patient’s daily routine and we focus on eliminating these issues. If you are experiencing wrist, hand or forearm pain or discomfort please contact our office to schedule an appointment with one of our chiropractors. If you live in or around Philadelphia, we would love to participate in the care and healing of your injuries and musculoskeletal conditions.
