DO YOU SUFFER FROM ELBOW & FOREARM PAIN?
Elbow and forearm pain can be caused by bad posture at work, where the muscles are held in static positions for long periods of time, for example, using a mouse whilst working on a computer. Problems can also be caused by over using the arm during a sporting activity, or, by some kind trauma to the muscle, where a force has been applied to the muscle. All these factors can result in the muscles in the forearm becoming tight to protect the damaged area. Alternatively, a small tear in the Brachicradialis muscle can transfer the pain down into the forearm, towards the wrist and hand, all of which can contribute to pain.
- Flexors and extensors
- Brachioradialis (small deep muscle at the top of the flexor muscle)
- Bicep muscle
Common Conditions Treated:
This condition is caused by the overuse of the flexor and extensor muscles that are attached to the elbow. It can also be caused by a slowly deteriorating condition like arthritis or rheumatism. The elbow becomes very tender and inflamed; it is very sore to touch, and sometimes the elbow can become inflamed.
Golfer’s Elbow is cause by a sudden trauma or blow to the elbow, repetitive stress to the flexor muscles and tendons, or repeated stress on the arm during a throwing action. Underlying conditions such as a neck problem, rheumatism or arthritis can also cause this problem. The symptoms are pain or tenderness to medial epicondyle muscles: This pain becomes worse when the wrist is flexed when lifting or grasping an object. There can also be difficulty in extending the forearm due to the inflammation.
This is caused by a hard blow to the tip of the elbow, causing the bursa inside the joint to swell with excess fluid. Symptoms include pain in the elbow joint at rest and during exercise. A painful swelling can be seen at the back of the elbow (red and warm if infected).
