Elbow pain is often associated with sports injuries acquired from repetitive motions, like swinging a tennis racket or golf club, but can also be caused by similar motions performed in an occupational environment, such as lifting and carrying items. Regardless of the cause, pain in the elbow can complicate even the simplest of tasks in your day to day life.

A Step Ahead Physical Therapy regularly treats the following conditions:

  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)

  • Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)

  • Ligament sprains

  • Nerve entrapments

  • Fractures

  • Dislocations

  • Tendinitis

  • …and more

 Elbow and arm pain can also be a symptom of neck or spinal related injuries and issues, and evaluating these additional areas is standard practice when building a treatment plan for patients suffering from elbow pain.
