Treatment for Elbow Pain and Injuries in San Leandro
The elbows are vital joints that are susceptible to injuries that affect hand and arm movement. When tendons, ligaments or nerves in the elbow are damaged, you may experience elbow pain and limited function. At Allied Pain & Spine Institute, we offer innovative treatment for elbow pain and injuries in San Leandro, CA.
The elbow connects the upper arm bone with the forearm bones. There are multiple tendons and ligaments that support the joint and nerves that pass through the joint to reach the wrist and hand. Elbow pain is often caused by repetitive motion that causes strains or sprains in the elbow. Conditions such as tennis and golfer’s elbow can result in minimized movement and elbow pain.
Injuries and inflammation in the elbow can impact the tunnels that protect the nerves that pass through the joint. This can result in nerve compression that causes pain and functional issues, conditions such as cubital or radial tunnel syndrome.

When the elbow joint is injured or damaged, it can limit the wrist, hand and arm movement. The muscles and tendons attached to the elbow allow the wrist to bend forward and backward, required for typing, driving, gripping and many other movements. Treatment for elbow pain and injuries can restore movement needed for daily tasks and occupational performance.
