The elbow joint is used excessively in sports and daily activities. Many people suffer from repetitive use elbow injuries or conditions that cause pain and restrict arm movement. If you need elbow pain relief, orthopedic surgeon Dr. Steven Struhl can offer advanced treatment options for your elbow condition at Shoulders & Knees orthopedic clinic in Westchester or NYC.
The elbow contains various tendons, ligaments and soft tissues in a hinge joint of the three arm bones. The nerves that serve the arm and hands run through the elbow joint, requiring an unrestricted pathway to control hand and finger function. Elbow injuries are common, and strains, sprains, fractures and dislocations can occur. To relieve pain and restore the function of the arm and hand, specialized treatments and surgery may be required.
