Chiropractic treatments for elbow pain
Our chiropractors will start by diagnosing the cause of the pain, and then looking for elbow dysfunction and/or misalignment, which may have put stress on the joint. We will also consider other areas of the body, such as the wrist and the shoulder, which play a role in elbow function. Once we have decided what the problem is, we will then manipulate and adjust the appropriate joints, ligaments and muscles. This in turn will assist to achieve fast, noticeable improvements, together with long-lasting pain relief.
