Elbow Arthritis Treatment

Elbow Arthritis 

Elbow arthritis is a condition caused by wear and tear of the elbow joint causing pain, swelling, and stiffness. It can occur due to age, overuse or injury and can be particularly painful for those struggling with it. At Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics, Dr. Sean Kaminsky and his team understand the complexities of elbow arthritis and have years of experience in treating this condition.

The causes of elbow arthritis vary but may include injuries sustained from sports or heavy lifting as well as genetic predisposition or even repetitive stress from activities such as typing or playing video games. In addition to age-related wear-and-tear that naturally occurs as we get older, conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis can also cause inflammation in the elbow joint, leading to discomfort. Our team will work with you to identify the source of your symptoms so that they can treat them effectively while taking into consideration individual factors such as age, activity level, occupation preferences and goals for recovery.

If you are struggling with elbow pain due to arthritis or another condition related to your joints please reach out to Dr. Kaminsky and the team at Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics today for an expert evaluation of your condition and to develop a plan for lasting relief from your discomfort.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some effective nonsurgical treatments for elbow pain?

Elbow pain can be treated effectively without surgery. Non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy, steroid injections and orthotics braces offer relief from elbow pain while preserving the existing joint and supporting surrounding muscles.

  • Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is a key part of treatment for elbow pain. The therapist will start with light stretching and range-of-motion exercises to reduce swelling and stiffness in the joint before progressing to muscle strengthening exercises. Regular physical therapy helps increase strength, flexibility and endurance so that patients can return to their daily activities with confidence.
  • Steroid Injections: Steroid injections can reduce inflammation in the elbow joint which can relieve pain, swelling and stiffness quickly. Injections are performed by our physicians who use ultrasound imaging to safely target the affected area with precision accuracy.
  • Orthotic Braces: Orthotics provide extra stability for weakened joints reducing discomfort and helping speed up recovery time. They are often used to support elbows during sports activities where there is an increased risk of injury or reinjury of the joint.
