Elbow Pain

Many instances of elbow pain are often caused by overuse. Baseball, softball and normal daily repetitive motions put a tremendous amount of pressure on the shoulder and elbow causing tendinitis as well as significant throwing injuries. Repeated throwing and other factors cause many athletes involved in these sports to end up with painful elbows.

Because of the varied nature of throwing injuries, we put into consideration the age, gender, practice routine and game schedule of all our patients in order to offer them the most comprehensive and effective baseball/ softball throwing injuries treatment.

The biceps muscle, located at the front of your upper arm, is responsible for supination (motion of rotating the forearm from palm down to palm up) and stabilizing the shoulder. Injuries to this muscle may occur at two different locations, the elbow (distal biceps tendon rapture) or at the shoulder attachment (proximal biceps tendon rupture).

Both have a noticeable effect on the capabilities of the arm in terms of motion and strength and whereas it is possible to continue use of the arm even with either of these injuries, the capacity for movement and strength in the arm is significantly reduced and you may not be able to do some of the things you were able to do in the past with your arm.

In either case, biceps tendon repair is recommended where the orthopedic surgeon will use either shoulder arthroscopy or elbow arthroscopy (depending on the location of the injury) and repair the tendon through reattachment.

Any sporting person or person living an active lifestyle, it is always advised to have any muscle tendon injuries examined even if the symptoms seem to be reducing so call us today at (352) 404-8956 to book an appointment.
