elbow, golfer’s elbow, nursemaid’s elbow, pitcher’s elbow, cell phone
elbow, Wii elbow…whatever you call it, whatever the cause, when your
funny bone’s in pain, it’s no laughing matter. For the most part, elbow
pain results from overuse injuries, such as sports or activities and
professions that require repetitive hand, wrist or arm movements. And
while most elbow pain isn't serious, it can definitely affect your life
since you use the joint in so many ways. Dr. Alan Hinton,
a board certified orthopedic and sports medicine specialist on staff at
Memorial, discusses early intervention and treatment options that are
key to relieving the pain and preventing future problems.
