Excellent Elbow Pain Treatment in NYC Excels With Conservative Treatments

Nov 07, 2019

HARVARD TRAINED PAIN DOCTORS | VOTED #1 PAIN CENTER | PAIN TREATMENT SPECIALISTS

Found a rust ring around your tub, sink, or toilet? Put a little “elbow grease” along with a potent cleansing agent, and you’ll get rid of the issue. The idiomatic expression refers to manual labor that requires lots of flexing at the elbow, such as scrubbing or washing. When you pull up your rubber gloves and get down to cleaning, you feel

elbow pain that makes the “grease” portion of your cleaning task impossible. If you can’t clean the house, how are you going to go about your regular work week?

When elbow pain takes over your normal day, it’s time to look into elbow pain treatment in NYC. Elbow pain treatment does not have to involve surgery or dangerous narcotics, but conservative treatments such as injections and physical therapy that provide long-lasting pain relief. The pain management doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists treat elbow injuries, such as tennis elbow or medial epicondylitis, also known as golfer’s elbow, with cutting-edge elbow pain treatments in NYC. Elbow pain treatment allows you to work with pain doctors to return your weekly cleaning regiment back to normal.

How Does Elbow Pain Treatment in NYC Help My Elbow Injury?

Elbow pain treatments in NYC work with every patient to ensure that their specific elbow pain concerns are addressed properly. At Pain Treatment Specialists, our Ivy League-educated pain doctors create a specialized plan to make sure that your elbow pain treatment in NYC works for your specific elbow pain. Some of the cutting-edge elbow pain treatments offered by Pain Treatment Specialists include:

  • Hyaluronic Acid Injection/Viscosupplementation: The main component of joint fluid is hyaluronic acid. This is what gives the joint fluid its thick texture, which provides a cushion between elbow joints. If you have a disease such as osteoarthritis, which is caused by age or wear and tear, your elbow’s hyaluronic acid becomes thinner over time. During viscosupplementation, hyaluronic acid is injected into the elbow joints to add cushion and supplement your body’s natural supply of this fluid.
  • Steroid Injections/Corticosteroids: Before viscosupplementation is used as an elbow pain treatment in NYC, steroid injections are tried first to reduce pain and swelling. What do steroid injections do? They decrease inflammation that is caused by a variety of diseases, or even by an injury such as tennis elbow or medial epicondylitis. During the corticosteroid procedure, pain doctors in NYC draw up the corticosteroid into a syringe that is injected into the affected elbow area. The result? The steroid injection reduces swelling and inflammation and provides immediate pain relief.
  • Physical Therapy: Physical therapists work with your pain doctors to create a pain treatment plan for your elbow pain, upper arm soreness, and lack of elbow mobility. Your physical therapist works on muscle strengthening exercises that isolate and target soft tissues and sore areas that need specific work. Elbow pain treatments in NYC work with a variety of treatments to ensure your elbow pain does not continue to present problems.
If you’re searching for a “back doctor in NYC” or are unsure of what type of doctor do I see for back pain, look for pain doctors that offer back pain treatments in NYC that do not resort to surgery or narcotics to treat chronic pain.

What Are Common Causes of Elbow Pain?

During your initial elbow pain treatment in NYC, your pain doctor identifies the source, and potential cause, of your elbow pain. Whether it’s from an aggressive tennis match, causing a common injury known as “tennis elbow”, or from an extended round of golf that causes medial epicondylitis (“golfer’s elbow), your pain doctor is able to isolate the specific cause of your elbow pain. Your elbow pain falls under one of the following categories:

  • Acute Injury: If you fall or suffer an injury while playing sports, you may have an acute injury. This can show itself as either a dislocated elbow, fractured elbow, or elbow sprain or strain. A dislocated elbow occurs when one of the bones that forms your elbow is knocked out of place, which often happens when you put your arm out to brace for a fall. A fractured elbow happens when one of your bones breaks at the elbow, which happens during a sports injury, fall, or car accident. Your elbow pain treatment in NYC determines the cause of your elbow pain and then a personalized elbow treatment plan is crafted for your specific needs.
  • Elbow Osteoarthritis: This is the most common type of arthritis, and commonly seen as a result of wear and tear. Osteoarthritis is caused by the breakdown of cartilage, which cushions the spaces between joints and bones. Symptoms of osteoarthritis include stiffness, swelling, and joint pain. Your pain doctor is qualified to diagnose your osteoarthritis during your elbow pain treatment in NYC.
  • Elbow Tendinitis: When the tendons around your elbow are overused, you may be diagnosed with elbow tendinitis. Tennis elbow is the most common form of elbow tendinitis, and affects the outside of your elbows. Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, affects the inside of your elbows due to the swinging motion of a golf club.
  • Biceps Tendinitis: A sudden severe pain may indicate a biceps tendon rupture. This can also be accompanied by a snapping or popping sensation in front of your elbow. The most common cause of biceps tendinitis? Heavy lifting!
  • Triceps Tendinitis: The same popping and snapping sensation, but this time at the back of your elbow, can indicate triceps tendinitis. During your elbow pain treatment in NYC, your pain doctors can help isolate which area of your elbow felt the snapping, popping sensation.
  • Elbow Bursitis: Bursitis occurs when excess fluid collects in a sac behind the elbow. This causes swelling, pain, and tenderness behind the elbow joint. If the swelling increases, your elbow’s range of motion is affected.

Don’t wait until your filthy fixtures scream for some elbow grease and cleaning attention! Contact the pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists to discuss how their elbow pain treatments in NYC can return some sparkle to your shower!
