Overused Elbow

Elbow - Causes and symptoms of overload

Pain in the elbow can be pressing, stinging or nagging and can radiate to the entire forearm, the hand and even the fingertips. The pain threshold varies with each individual. What can be just a slight irritation for one person is a hellish torture for another person. For this reason, it is always recommended to consult a doctor. If you have pain with office work, it may be because you are typing from time to time. This results in a tense elbow, which will lead to an overloaded elbow. For some professions, you cannot avoid typing, so then stretching is a necessity.

Elbow – Treatment of an overloaded elbow

For a doctor, it is difficult to define the cause of your problem. It can be a tendon infection, but also a muscle that is no longer healthy. There are a countless number of causes that seem to be innocent, but can destroy your elbow in a short time. For this reason, you should always consult a doctor. There are several ways to treat pain in the elbow. The intensity and nature are central to the treatment method. For long-term disorders, painkillers are often prescribed by doctors. In less serious cases, doctors often recommend taking rest. Tools are often used to prevent or remedy overloading.
