Elbow Pain Treatment

Elbow joint pain most often it is the result of repetitive use or excessive pressure on the joint. At Bramalea Chiropractic and Physiotherapy, our team is excellent at providing relief from elbow pain – whether the cause is tendinitis, a sprain, a fracture or some disease-related cause.

 

Your elbow pain may be caused by:
  • Tennis elbow (or elbow tendinitis, also known as lateral epicondylitis), affects the tendons connecting the muscles on the outer side of the elbow. Tennis elbow generally does not limit range of motion.
  • Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis), affects the tendons on the inner part of the elbow. Because the actual joint isn’t affected, range of motion is not limited.
  • Bursitis Inflammation of the bursa at the tip of the elbow (olecranon bursitis), is painful and occurs due to injuries, trauma or diseases such as gout and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Compression of the ulnar nerve on the inner side of the elbow joint (cubital tunnel syndrome) can cause elbow pain.
  • Fracture of the elbow joint or bones around it are painful.
  • Sprain of the ligaments in the elbow area cause discomfort.
  • Arthritis and gout cause inflammation, pain and stiffness of the joints – including the elbow.
  • Septic arthritis (bacterial infection) of the elbow joint sometimes occurs in those with suppressed immune systems. If you have septic arthritis, you’ll notice fever and chills accompanying the pain.
  • Rarely, bone tumors can grow in the elbow joint, causing pain.
If you notice symptoms such as warmth and swelling of the joint, redness or tenderness; or if your range of motion is restricted, call Bramlea Chiropractic and Physiotherapy right away.

 

Wrist Pain Treatment

Some of our patients have suffered wrist pain for months by the time they come in, unnecessarily causing difficulties with everyday tasks like turning door handles, carrying briefcases and lifting milk containers. Bramalea Chiropractic and Physiotherapy’s registered physiotherapists are trained to assess and diagnose wrist injuries.

 

In fact, ignoring a wrist injury can actually result in permanent damage to the joint. Without treatment, wrist pain may become chronic or even result in joint deformities.

 

Don’t wait; now is the time to seek help for your wrist injury.

 

Hand Pain Treatment

Hand joint pain affects almost everything we do in daily life. Holding a mug, tying your shoes or turning a doorknob can be excruciating or even impossible.

 

Let Bramalea Chiropractic and Physiotherapy find the cause of your hand pain. Could it be hand arthritis? Is the pain in your trigger finger? We’ll address the specific problem.

 

Our team is ready to work with you and address your unique issues. We can relieve hand pain, including yours. Call today.

 

Hip Pain Treatment

Bramalea Chiropractic and Physiotherapy has registered physiotherapists who have helped many Ontarians into a more active lifestyle by relieving their hip pain. Hip joint damage can even affect the back or knees and can be caused by a number of different diseases and conditions.

 

Those suffering from hip joint damage typically feel it in the groin (inguinal ligament) and when they rotate their hips. Some diseases of the hip can even make your knee hurt (which is called referred pain) because the hip and knee joints share a common nerve supply.

 

Our team of chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists have the training to relieve your hip pain. Take the first step and get in touch now.

 

Knee Pain Treatment

Studies show that some 20% of adults 25 or older have experienced knee pain of one kind of another. Because there are many causes of knee pain, it’s important that you seek treatment from a team that is familiar with knee problems – like Bramalea Chiropractic and Physiotherapy.

 

Knee pain is actually useful in that it serves as an alarm that the area has been damaged or is being overused. Many knee conditions, when left untreated, can cause significant problems down the road. For instance, even minute tears in the meniscus can lead to faster development of osteoarthritis in the future if left untreated.

 

If you are experiencing pain in your knee, call Bramalea Chiropractic and Physiotherapy right away so we can begin your healing.

 

Ankle Pain Treatment

Ankle pain disrupts your life horribly. When you can’t stand or walk easily, your quality of life drops dramatically. Did your pain begin suddenly (which means it probably stems from an injury) or is it chronic (perhaps caused by disease)?

 

Common Causes of Ankle Pain
It’s easy to injure ankles while jumping, walking or running. But ankle pain can also be a symptom of certain diseases. Causes of ankle pain include:

 

Ankle Sprain: Sprains come from the ankle rolling over or twisting. Ligaments stretch and can even tear; especially during certain athletic activities like basketball that require a jerking motion. Anyone can sprain an ankle walking on an uneven surface or wearing high-heel shoes, though.

 

Stress Fractures: Fractures are hairline cracks that develop on bones after repetitive pressure or stress. Not a sudden occurrence, ankle pain will develop over a period of time. You’ll know it’s a stress fracture when it hurts without swelling. Stress fractures can stem from running long distances and jumping on hard surfaces, for instance, although those with osteoporosis are prone to stress fractures due to their weakened bones. Obese people can get stress fractures, as their feet bear extra body weight.

 

Arthritis: Arthritis often causes chronic ankle pain in the elderly, appearing as pain, swelling and stiffness in the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis usually is the culprit here, causing aging-related deterioration of the joint. However, arthritis can develop in younger patients who neglect to seek help for an injury.

 

Gout: This form of arthritis is caused by an accumulation of uric acid in a joint, resulting in a sudden burning pain in the ankle (gout attack). Even a slight touch on the area can be incredibly painful during a gout attack, which will recur from time to time.

 

Achilles Tendinitis: The Achilles tendon connects lower calf muscles with the heel bone. This tendon becomes inflamed due to overuse during exercise such as running, which is why athletes tend to suffer from Achilles tendinitis. However, it also appears in arthritic patients.
