Elbow Pain Treatment Nuneaton

If you are in need of elbow pain treatment in Nuneaton, Joint Care Clinics are HCPC registered and members of the chartered society of physiotherapy. We offer a one-stop clinic for consultation, diagnostic scans and treatment. We have joint care clinics across the UK, where highly experienced clinicians offer this service. We use an ultrasound diagnostic scanner to pinpoint the area of pain, for a more accurate diagnosis and tailor-made treatment.

Elbow pain through an occupation, sports or hobbies is most common than arthritic elbow joint pain. This is due to repetitive and excessive overload of the tendons around the elbow leads to painful tendonitis. Degenerative arthritis (also known as osteoarthritis), rheumatoid arthritis or gouty arthritis are the other less common conditions for elbow joint pain.
Occupations involving repetitive use of the wrist and arm muscles are most likely to develop repetitive strain injuries, such as :

  •  Tennis elbow: Pain at the outer side of the elbow.
  • Golfers elbow: Pain at the inner side of the elbow.
  • Triceps tendinopathy: Pain over the tip of the elbow.

Golfers and Tennis Elbow Treatment Nuneaton

Tendon problems are also common among sports professionals who play badminton, tennis, golf, cricket, and musical instruments.

Our in-house high-resolution diagnostic ultrasound machine is an excellent diagnostic tool to diagnose the above problems.  Diagnostic ultrasound dynamic capability helps to assess the muscle/tendon/ligaments and nerve-related problems in a real-time environment.  That means we can assess the above structures when you are carrying out certain movements of the hand.

Ultrasound also guides the injection needle and accurately injects the problematic area and aspirates joint effusion or cysts before steroid shots.

A few examples of professions prone to develop pain around elbow tendons are builders, butchers,  carpenters, chefs,  drummers, computers & keyboard users, engineers, housekeepers, plumbers, and painters.

What is an ultrasound guided cortisone / Steroid / Corticosteroid injection?

A cortisone injection is also known as a Corticosteroid injection or steroid injection. This strong anti-inflammatory medication is used for many inflammatory and arthritis conditions to control pain, swelling, stiffness, and improve function. Corticosteroid injections are NOT the same used by bodybuilders use. Corticosteroid injections do not cause weight gain.  To find out more please visit our ultrasound-guided steroid injections page from the ‘Types of Guided injection’ menu on the top.

Always, consider having the Steroid injections under ultrasound guidance for accuracy.

What is an ultrasound guided hyaluronic acid (HA) injection?

HA injection is also known as Gel injection or Lubricant injection. This viscosupplementation injection is a natural component of synovial fluid. This tends to increase joint fluid viscosity and restores joint lubrication. Hence, acts as a shock absorber to control the joint /tendon symptoms. Limits further damage to the joint and delays or avoids the need for surgery. Also, helps to enjoy your daily activities or your preferred hobbies. To find out more please visit our  GUIDED ULTRASOUND HYALURONIC ACID INJECTIONS page from the ‘Types of Guided injection’ menu on the top.

These injections are very popular, especially for knee joint pain. Due to minimal or no side effects, any number of injections can be taken in a given period. Usually, a course of 3 Injections is preferred, though some may do well just with an injection per year 9 we have patients managing just with 1/year.

What is an ultrasound guided PRP injection?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are rich in growth factors (help repair the cell and its growth) and prepared from the patient’s blood. Separated growth factors from the patient’s blood are injected back into the affected area of the same patient. PRP’s ability to heal and even regenerate injured or ageing tendons, ligaments, and joints, provides some patients with an alternative to surgery. PRP therapy may reduce the required healing time (especially for sports injuries and early Arthritis); otherwise, athletes/ sports professionals may require more extended periods of rest from their sports-related activities.  To read more please visit our Ultrasound Guided PRP page.

Always, consider having the PRP injections under ultrasound guidance for accuracy.

can i drive after an injection

You will not be able to drive immediately after the procedure. Bring someone with you Or use another form of transport to return home. This is mainly due to your driving license policy, rather than injection efficacy. The majority of the motor insurance policies will not allow you to drive for 3-5 hours after the injection with Local Anesthesia.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER AN INJECTION?

WILL I ALWAYS FEEL 100% PAIN FREE?

HOW MANY INJECTIONS CAN I RECEIVE?
