Causes of Elbow Pain
Repetitive physical stressors are frequently the chief reason behind elbow pain. Because of the essential nature of the elbow, injuries of a repetitive nature are prevalent. The constant movement of the elbow and its usage during specific activities can put too much tension on the elbow's tendons. Conditions like tennis elbow and golfer's elbow frequently impact people who engage in those specific related athletic activities. However, it can be present in people working in positions requiring repetitive wrist or arm movements, like carpenters or those working in construction-related trades. We use our arms every day. Physical therapy may help reduce your pain and improve your performance.
Other causes of elbow pain that we typically see include acute injuries, post-surgical cases, or sometimes the underlying cause may be a medical condition that will require separate treatment plus physical therapy. We help determine the cause of your elbow problem during your initial physical therapy sessions. We may recommend that you visit a medical professional as well, depending on the source of your pain.
We also observe your body movement habits to determine the ideal exercises we will use as part of your treatment.
We also frequently use other techniques to assist with pain reduction while you are working on your physical therapy program, such as deep tissue massage and trigger point dry needling.

Debbie, age 60 with Ginger after Cooper River Bridge Run
"I came to Ginger for PT after I was involved in a horrible car wreck. I had so many injuries I was walking with a walker with platforms for my broken hand. I was an avid runner, cyclist and swimmer. I was told that my knees were so badly injured that I would never run again. It was a very emotional time for me. Ginger worked with me and was very positive about my returning to running and all the sports that I loved. She was very knowledgeable, professional and fun. Not only did I get better and returned to running, biking and swimming, I had fun in the process and made a friend for life. In fact, Ginger has treated my husband and 2 sons as well. I have been treated by other physical therapists in the past, and I can tell you that Ginger exceeded my expectations by a long shot. She's the best! She gave me undivided attention each and every visit and she took the time to listen to my physical needs as well as my emotional needs after such a trauma. I highly recommend Ginger Morrissey for your orthopedic needs. She will get you back to enjoying life!"
