Elbow Pain Treatment Without Injections Or Surgery In Malaysia
There are two main types of injuries in patients with pain on the inner side of the elbow. One of the injuries involves 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. Contact Chiropractic Specialty Center® (CSC) for the best tendonitis treatment. CSC’s treatment of tendonitis provides the fast and lasting relief you need for an active life.
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 joint’s stability under valgus stress. Poor throwing techniques and repetitive throwing can lead to over-stretching of the medial collateral ligament. Overstretched soft tissues 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. Scar tissues 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. An increased compressive force may damage the radiocapitellar joint when additional valgus stress is exerted on the unstable elbow joint.
Golfer’s Elbow Or Medial Epicondylitis
Golfer’s elbow pain or medial epicondylitis is the diagnosis given when the elbow joint hurts on the inner aspect or medial part (part closest to your body). But don’t get confused by the term “golfer’s elbow,” as it can occur on non-golfers. They call it a golfer’s elbow because it is relatively common in new golfers or those who play a lot of golf.

Lateral Epicondylitis Or Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow can impact anyone, even if you have never played a game of tennis. In the tennis elbow, the outer aspect or lateral part of the elbow joint becomes painful. Pain from the golfers below and tennis elbow are both related to epicondylitis. In the tennis elbow, it is the lateral or outer epicondyle that gets damaged and inflamed. CSC provides holistic, non-invasive therapies for both tennis and golfer’s elbow through a combination of chiropractic and physiotherapy. Our experts often use physiotherapy procedures that include shockwave therapy, ultrasound therapy, electro-stimulation, and high-intensity laser therapy.
Elbow pain is a common symptom in patients who suffer from chronic neck pain. Neck issues such as degenerative disc disease, bulging discs, herniated discs, and extruded discs (slip discs) in the neck result in impingement of nerves that run down the arms. A slipped disc in the neck, bone spurs, and arthritis must be ruled out thoroughly in patients that complins of elbow pain.
Cubital Tunel Sydrome & Ulnar Nerve Compresion
Ulnar nerve compression is the second most common neuropathy in the upper limb. However, it is the most common neuropathy in the elbow. The ulnar nerve originates from the lowest portions of your neck, and it travels through the shoulder’s & arm’s intramuscular membrane reaching the elbow. At the elbow, it passes through the cubital tunnel. The cubital tunnel is on the inner aspects of your elbow and an area commonly known as the funny bone. Compression and neuropathic conditions related to the ulnar nerve can arise from damaged structures or tissues in or near the cubital tunnel. Ulnar nerve compression and damage can result and the following symptoms:
- Elbow & arm weakness & pain
- Wrist & hand pain & weakness
- Numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in 1st, 4th & 5th digits
- Weakness In elbow, forearm, wrist, hand, thumb, ring finger & pinkie finger
Causes Of Ulnar Nerve Pain & To Cubital Canal Issues
Ulnar nerve pain and compression are common, impacting about 6-8% of the population. Elbow pain resulting from ulnar nerve compression results from repetitive actions, excessive stretching of the ulnar nerve, elbow joint damage, or injuries. We have listed some additional causes related to ulnar nerve pain below:
- The dynamic valgus force of throwing can result in traction injuries to the nerve. This condition can be aggravated if there is the instability of the inner elbow.
- Chronic compression at the cubital tunnel as the nerve passes between the two heads of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle. The nerve is irritated due to inflammation and adhesions from repetitive stresses and muscle overdevelopment.
- Ulnar neuritis, inflammation of the nerve, can occur due to direct trauma or recurrent subluxation due to acquired laxity from repetitive stress.
- Irregularities or deformities within the ulnar groove, for example, bone spurs, are common in overuse injuries in throwers.
