Elbow pain and discomfort can make everyday tasks difficult, but with a wide range of treatments available, you don’t have to suffer in silence.
People with elbow pain can experience problems caused by trauma, medical conditions or injuries such as swelling, inflammation and stiffness.
What are the causes of elbow pain?
Injury from sport, or everyday activity, is a common contributor to elbow pain. Activities such as lifting heavy objects, swinging a racket or club, or regularly over-extending all put additional strain on the elbow joint. Symptoms such as swelling, inflammation or stiffness can be caused by an injury or conditions like tendonitis, frozen shoulder, arthritis or sprains.
How can elbow pain be treated?
Treatments for elbow pain depend on the underlying cause. Many cases of elbow pain will go away in time and can be managed with hot or cold compresses and over-the-counter painkillers. However, if pain is ongoing you should see your GP who may refer you for treatment or surgery.
