Elbow pain develops for several different reasons. In most cases, elbow pain is due to overuse and repetitive movement. The most common causes of elbow pain include: Golfer’s elbow; Tennis elbow; Bursitis, or joint inflammation; Sprains; Tendinitis; Dislocation; Fracture or break; Trapped nerves; osteoarthritis; and rheumatoid arthritis.
Diagnosing the source of elbow pain is done by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Vengurlekar. Your consultation for elbow pain usually includes a comprehensive physical exam, a review of your personal and medical history, and a discussion of your symptoms. Following the diagnosis, Dr. Vengurlekar offers minimally invasive, targeted injections to deliver powerful pain-relieving medications directly to the source of your pain.
