Elbow disorders may involve bursae, tendons, bones in the arm, ligaments and muscles. Of course, there is a way to prevent such injuries.

    About Elbow injury

    Majority of elbow injuries occur during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, home duties, falls. There are acute and overuse traumas. As for acute or sudden ones, they occur in case of a penetrating injury, direct blow, fall and abnormal elbow movements. Overuse injuries are the ones that happen due to too much stress and tension in the joint or other tissues.

    In case of an elbow trauma a person may experience:

    • severe pain,
    • bruising,
    • swelling,
    • soreness,
    • reddening of the skin around the joint.

    Moving an elbow in any way will be problematic and will cause pain. Our professional medical staff is experienced to find proper solutions for any condition.

    Mostly, the elbow injury treatment doesn’t require a surgery, it is a last resort. Of course, it depends on the trauma a patient has but often the conservative ways are suitable. Our medical clinic provides all kinds of treatments.

    The elbow doctors (orthopedists) in the medical clinic Touch of Health offer the following options:

    • nonsteroidal anti-flammatory drugs,
    • physical therapy,
    • elbow padding,
    • braces or immobilization,
    • steroid injections  (to relieve elbow injury pain).

    In the medical clinic Touch of Health after a full-body examination specialists use unique techniques for non-surgical back injury treatment:

    • VTFS (interstitial electrical stimulation);
    • USHT (wave shock therapy);
    • kinesiotherapy;
    • computer traction of the spine with the special equipment;
    • ultrasound of joints.

    If the examination shows that the patient requires a surgical procedure our clinic in Orlando(Florida) specialized in such elbow injury surgeries as:

    • elbow epicondylitis repair;
    • distal biceps tendon repair;
    • Tommy John surgery;
    • Total elbow replacement. Elbow joint replacement, also referred to as total elbow arthroplasty, is an operative procedure to treat the symptoms of arthritis that have not responded to non-surgical treatments. The goal of elbow joint replacement surgery is to eliminate your pain and increase the mobility of your elbow joint;
    • Arthoscopic elbow surgery (Elbow Arthoscopy). Elbow arthroscopy, also referred to as keyhole or minimally invasive surgery, is a surgical procedure that is performed through tiny incisions to evaluate and treat several elbow conditions.

    Elbow surgery recovery takes from 2-6 months. The patient has to visit the clinic regularly for the elbow examination and evaluation of the recovery progress. Our doctors recommend physical therapy and advise not to lift anything heavy after the surgery.

    In Touch of Health, the medical center near you, our doctors are always ready to provide any required elbow diagnostics and treatment.
