FAQs About Elbow Care

How Long Should You Wait to See a Doctor About Elbow Pain? How Do I Know If My Elbow Pain Is Serious?

See an elbow care specialist right away if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • A popping sensation at the time of injury
  • Limited range of motion
  • Weakened grip
  • Severe pain that interferes with everyday activities

What Can Cause Elbow Pain Without an Injury?

Elbow pain not caused by a known injury could be due to overuse or arthritis. An orthopedic specialist can provide a proper diagnosis to determine what is causing your elbow pain. If there are any underlying conditions, they will work with you to develop the appropriate elbow care treatment plan.

What Are Signs You Might Have Arthritis in Your Elbows? What Does Elbow Arthritis Feel Like?

The most common types of elbow arthritis are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. While elbow pain is the most common sign of arthritis, other common symptoms include:

  • Stiffness or limited range of motion
  • Swelling around your elbow joint
  • A grinding sensation when moving your elbow
  • Instability in your elbow joint

How Does Weight Affect the Health of Your Elbows?
