Elbow and Shoulder Injuries
Stiffness, pain, and decreased or limited mobility with or without pain can indicate an elbow or shoulder injury. Elbow and shoulder injuries usually need medical care and can sometimes get worse or cause long-term issues if proper and adequate treatment is not received. Common elbow and shoulder injuries include:
- UCL injury
- Bicipital Tendonitis
- Rotator Cuff Tears
- Shoulder sprains and strains
- Tennis Elbow and Golfer’s Elbow – Tennis and Golfer’s elbow are common conditions that come from overuse of the forearm and elbow due to a wide range of sports, occupations, and activities.
- Inflammatory Conditions (Tendonitis, Bursitis, Fasciitis) – Inflammatory conditions are common and are known to cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in just about any part of the body that moves. People who suffer from these conditions suffer from inflammation of the connective tissues in the body – such as the fibers that connect muscles to the bone or joints.
