Chiropractic Care for Elbow Pain in Malaysia

There are two main types of injuries in patients with pain on the inner side of the elbow. One of the injuries involve repetitive stress to the tendinous insertion of the wrist flexors at the inner elbow. The tendons of pronator teres and the wrist flexors group are being irritated due to excessive activity of the wrist and hand. This condition is commonly known as the Golfer’s elbow, or flexor/pronator tendinopathy.

The other cause of inner elbow pain is due to excessive throwing activities. The throwing action can cause additional stress on the medial collateral ligament due to increased valgus stress on the elbow. The anterior part of the medial collateral ligament and the joint contour of the radiocapitellar joint are the major contributors to the stability of joint under valgus stress. Poor throwing techniques and repetitive throwing can lead to over-stretching of the medial collateral ligament. This can result in an instability of the joint due to increased laxity of the ligament.

Prolonged injury to the medial collateral ligament may lead to additional scar tissue deposition. This can result in fixed flexion deformity of the elbow joint. If this fixed flexion deformity continues, synovitis or loose body formation may develop in the elbow joint as the medial tip of the olecranon can impinge on the olecranon fossa. There may be an increase compressive force which can damage the radiocapitellar joint when additional valgus stress is exerted on the unstable elbow joint.
Chiropractic care in Malaysia can help with the elbow pain by correcting the misalignment of the elbow joint and muscle imbalances. We can also give you some advice on how to perform the exercises that you like without hurting yourself.
