Arm pain can be caused by a number of factors. The arm pain treatments in Richland are focused upon the reason you are hurting. Neck injuries often create radiating arm pain, especially when the lower cervical vertebrae are involved. Compression on the nerves of the arm can cause arm and hand weakness and tingling, as in the case of carpal tunnel syndrome. Other causes of arm pain can be repetitive movements and tendonitis. Tennis elbow, or epicondylitis, is a common cause of arm pain. It is often the result of sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, home projects, and repetitive stress. Tennis elbow is an overuse and muscle strain injury. The cause is repeated contraction of the forearm muscles that you use to straighten and raise your hand and wrist. The repeated motions and stress to the tissue may result in a series of tiny tears in the tendons that attach the forearm muscles to the bony prominence at the outside of your elbow.
Our arm pain treatment in Richland is called Graston Technique and it has been proven successful in treating tennis elbow by relieving pain and restoring function. The non-invasive mobilization technique uses specially designed stainless steel instruments to help the clinician identify and treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. It involves treating the whole affected arm in a way that increases circulation and stimulates healing and realignment of the scar tissue over the elbow. Our physical therapists will also spend time educating you about the condition and how to reduce elbow inflammation and pain. Proper movement techniques, rest and ice are early treatment options. To further the healing process, a therapist will work with you to stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons surrounding the injured elbow.
