Compared to the back, shoulder, and wrist, the elbow is a relatively pain-free joint. Although it has a complex set of moving parts, this three-bone joint does not often prompt a visit to the chiropractic office. Yet, when the elbow is painful, it can be a very difficult joint to ignore.
Most people might not immediately think of a chiropractor's office as the first place to seek health care for a sore elbow. But most elbow conditions should be treated with conservative care, and chiropractic doctors are well-trained to recognize the few cases of serious elbow conditions.
Among the many things that might cause your elbow pain are:
- muscle trigger points
- nerve irritation from a neck condition
- osteochondrosis dissecans
