One of the most common ailments impacting Americans today is elbow pain. Overuse, strain, stress, and general wear and tear can cause elbow pain. As we age, arthritis is a common condition that will impact the elbows and cause pain. We find that repetitive motion is one of the leading causes of elbow pain, and sports motion often leads to tendon and ligament damage. If you are suffering from elbow pain, contact Carlile Chiropractic to schedule a consultation. As a sports chiropractor, Dr. Carlile understands the best treatment methods to restore motion, reduce pain, and promote healing.

Elbow pain is caused by a variety of conditions. We find sports and repetitive motion activities are normally the most-common reasons why an individual will experience elbow pain. Here are some activities that are associated with elbow pain:

Chiropractic Care for Elbow Pain
When you experience elbow pain, you may find yourself trying not to move the elbow. Call our office immediately to start chiropractic treatment as delaying movement to the elbow can reduce joint function. Dr. Carlile will discuss your physical symptoms and determine the root cause of pain, and implement the best treatment plan. We will focus on restoring motion to the joint and improving range of motion. Some of the ways we will treat elbow pain include:
- Break up scar tissue. We will implement manual manipulation to focus on breaking up scar tissue. Scar tissue is known for limiting range of motion in joints and often leads to pain.
- Reduce inflammation. When inflammation surrounds the joint, it leads to pain and a handful of other health problems. We perform joint adjustments to break up scar tissue and reduce inflammation.
- Restore mobility. We focus on helping your elbow get back to its proper state with gentle manipulation and movement. We will realign the elbow within the joint, making it easier to move and limit pain.
