Your elbow is a hinge joint connecting the upper arm bone with the bones of the forearm.  Many things can make your elbow hurt.  A common cause is tendinits, an inflammation or injury to the tendons that attach muscle to bone.  Although tendinitis of the elbow often is related to sports injury (golf, or tennis), it also results from other overuse activities.

Common conditions we treat:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Surgery For Bicep Tendon
Tennis Elbow
Golfer’s Elbow

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is due to a build up of pressure around the median nerve as it passes through the carpal tunnel at the front of the wrist.  The Carpal tunnel is surrounded by eight bones at the back and a ligament at the front and has 8 tendons as well as the median nerve running through it.  Things can get a bit cramped and this puts pressure on the nerve.

Treatment may include:

Joint mobility of the wrist bones and surrounding joints
Releasing the ligament in front to release pressure on the nerve
Assess the neck and the whole pathway that the median nerve travels from neck to hand
Assessment of ergonomic factors at the worksite, home & car
