While the shoulder is a ball and socket joint, the elbow is a hinge joint where three joints come together. That’s why your arm is versatile – you can move your arm from the elbow at multiple angles.
We see patients with a variety of injuries or issues that limit their ability to throw or lift, or even just get in the way of everyday movement. After our initial overall exam (again, one part of the body affects the rest of the body!), our therapists will evaluate each of these three joints to make sure they’re gliding appropriately and check for other soft tissue restrictions.
Once we know if the cause is soft tissue or the joint, or neural compression, and taking into account your health, your lifestyle, and your job, we’ll create a customized plan to get you back to pain-free movement. And it won’t be a list of tips! We’ll use hands-on manual therapy as well as other therapies. If exercise is needed, we’ll show you how to do it. We’ll be with you every step of the way on your recovery.
