The RHC treats patients with a variety of elbow conditions. All the physicians at the RHC have received specialty training in the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of elbow conditions. The elbow is a complex joint, comprised of three bones in addition to cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. Elbow pain or an elbow injury can significantly affect a person’s function and lifestyle. At the RHC, our goal is to improve a patient’s quality of life through effective non-surgical and surgical treatments. We work personally with on-site physical and occupational therapists to optimize outcomes.
Common elbow problems we treat:
- Arthritis (degenerative joint disease)
- Cubital tunnel syndrome (ulnar nerve compression)
- Contractures (elbow stiffness)
- Distal biceps rupture (torn biceps tendon)
- Elbow dislocation
- Elbow fracture (broken elbow)
- Elbow pain
- Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)
- Olecranon bursitis (elbow swelling)
- Radial head fracture
- Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis)
