ELBOW TREATMENTS

Elbow surgery and other nonsurgical treatments could be needed for a range of reasons, including elbow pain and injury. The elbow is especially susceptible to stress injuries either acutely, as the result of a specific one-time injury, or over time as the result of overuse and repetitive injuries. There are many sports, hobbies, and jobs that require repetitive movements of the arm and elbow that can cause wear and pain.

CHP Orthopaedic Specialists takes a multi-faceted approach to treating elbow pain and elbow injury. Treatment will vary depending on the cause and severity of the symptoms and may include conservative treatment, injections, or surgical management.
