Osteopathy and Elbow Pain
Elbow pain often occurs due to a variety of sports and occupations that involve repeated pressure on the muscle and tendons near the elbow joint.1 This can overload the tissues particularly where the tendon anchors to the bone. If an overloading does occur then that can cause pain around the elbow and when using the wrist and hand.
The most common type of elbow pain in known as ‘tennis elbow’. Other common elbow injuries include golfer’s elbow, tendinopathy, radial head ligament sprains and ulnar nerve entrapment. 1, 2 These injuries typically occur as a result of a range of physical activities such as racquet sports, rowing, canoeing, weightlifting, hockey, wrestling, swimming as well as repetitive work tasks undertaken in a variety of occupations. 1, 2
